trend: fair isle sweaters

One thing jumped out at me in Chicago – every great boutique had a stock of fair isle sweaters. I must have been so focused on lady-like chic and camel everything that I did not see fair isle coming. But ’tis here and we’re embracing it. My favorites were chunky wool cardigans that ran long and belted. Unfortunately, they were mostly for men… hmm.

Some online finds, though we will keep searching for the perfect sweater. As always, click on the pic for the link.

Forever 21 – $27.80


Old Navy – $39.50


Asos – $65.51


Kensie – $78.00


Anthropologie – $128.00


Free People – $148.00

Or might we suggest perusing eBay for something vintage? Fair Isle sweater listing here. And since the men’s sweaters were more appealing, how about going with a men’s small or medium for an oversized look? And – shocking – the men’s sweaters are cheaper even though they have more material. Harrumph!

BDG – $58.00 (good with black leggings, no?)


BDG – $68.00
