How She’d Wear It with Style and Cheek – Fair Isle Sweaters

By Tuesday, December 22, 2015 2 Permalink

If we’re talking chunky knits this month, we cannot forget the fair isle, one of my favorite seasonal knits. Everything about fair isle sweaters just screams holiday season, which is why, I’m showing you two Christmas-ready-ways to wear your favorite holiday chunky knit. But these looks aren’t limited to just 12/24 and 12/25, they’re not Frosty the Snowman themed, they can be worn all winter basically whenever you want to stay cozy and warm. These pieces are layered easily with equally warm overcoats, if you need to double down on warmth, but you can also wear them as is if you luck into some temperate conditions. Enjoy these fair isle sweaters and your holiday week and we’ll be seeing you next week with two more cute looks for winter.

This outfit is cozy and adorable. Perfect for Christmas with the family as well as a ski trip. Honestly the perfect thing to pair a really cute chunky fair isle sweater with is your favorite pair of skinny jeans. They look great with an oversized sweater and show off your winter ready duck boots. Get yourself some cute socks to peek out of the top of the boot and add a light layer underneath your sweater along with your classy AF jewelry. I say go full prepster princess, so rock those diamonds if you got ’em.

Keep the look smart with a white button down underneath and add simple, understated gold jewelry. Just make sure your brow game is strong and you’re ready for at least a hot toddy, if not a couple glasses of bubbles.

    Such a great post! I love the fair isle sweater. It’s a favorite of mine, but I didn’t think to pair it with faux leather leggings and cute pom pom ballet flats. Those shoes are adorable!
