Fair Isle // Four Ways

Fair Isle is one of those winter trends that is totally classic, but has been given some fresh updates in recent years by putting it in trendy colors and new fabrications. It's definitely one of the must-have patterns of the season.

 I have some outfit ideas that won't leave you looking like a vintage seventies ski bunny (though, I must admit, they were pretty chic)!

try this trend: fairisle four ways

Look 1:  Pair this Modcloth  fair isle sweater in trendy winter shades with skinny mint cords & studded navy loafers for a look thats fireside fabulous.
Look 2:  Casual but chic-- this Titlenine wrap sweater is flattering with a pair of jeans tucked into these fair isle sweater boots. Keep jewelry simple like this monogram necklace from Swell Caroline
Look 3: Stay warm but stylish in a sweater dress paired with a quilted vest in bright pink, neon fair isle gloves & a pair of cozy waterproof boots
Look 4: The fair isle sweater of the season is this one with collar detail from J. Crew. I love it styled with a faux leather skirt & cobalt heels. I can seriously envision myself wearing this on Christmas Eve for our obligatory Christmas tree outfit pictures.

Also, a few of my favorite fair isle looks around the blogosphere!





Have you tried out the fair isle trend yet? How would you wear it?

I LOVE the fair isle trend but feel so silly wearing it down here in FL! I mean it's 80 degrees out! I think pairing it with the skater skirt would be the best way to go in these conditions!

Don't forget to check out the giveaway going on at Cotton's Pickins right now, too!

Completely love the quilted vests!
We also rocked the Fair Isle on a recent trip to the Big City: http://holychicblog.blogspot.com/2012/12/fair-isle.html

Love how bold the tulle skirt would be!
