FAIR ISLE FRENZY!

The fair isle motif is officially on our radar this season, for both men and women. Seen in fall/winter collections of top designers such as our beloved Alexander McQueen and Hannah MacGibbon for Chloé, these patterns and pieces are surprisingly refreshing and chic. Read on for a glimpse of some of my favorites that will keep you looking like a Crested Butte Cutie–not a Tibetan Sherpa.


DAMES
Forever 21 Dolman cut sweater cardigan; $30
I love the updated cut of this lightweight sweater bearing pops of oh-so-now red. And you can’t beat the price!

ModCloth Up In The Alps Dress; $90
Hello, Swiss Miss! Pony up to your ski chalet in this cute little number. When the blizzard barrels in, slip into some snow-white wellies and knit knee socks; or, for the city-dweller, stick with the staples: opaque tights and flats (of the boot variety and otherwise).

Topshop Fair Isle Cape; $65
Between the chunky knit and shades of toasted almond and cacao, I feel warmer just looking at this. Pair it with a super-soft long-sleeved tee, skinnies, and riding boots.


DUDES
Rag & Bone Carter Fair Isle Shawl Neck; $380
Move over, grandpa! The people at R&B have churned out something unexpectedly ski-lodge sexy. Pair this lover with dark denim and a collared shirt, three days post-shave.

All Saints Alexi Cardigan; $143
Ok, so this one may come off as a little, well, girly–but hear me out. Match it up à la grizzled mountain model on the webpage: with fitted jeans, a comfy tee, and well-broken-in lace-up boots. Kate, Sienna (and Jude) types will swoon.

Urban Outfitters BDG Fair Isle Crew Neck Sweater; $58
There is something fantastically hipsterific and art-boy meets folk-band singer about this sweater that I really love. Never mind the librarian-esque model.
