Fair Isle sweaters in fashion
Fair Isle patterned sweaters lend a ski-chic finish to chilly days in unquestionable style. Be it shopping in the city centre or a break in the mountains, these sweaters combine the advantages of a cozy thickness, work-to-weekend versatility and an on-trend attitude. Wear it with anything you like: a leather skirt to achieve the mod Sixties look, or with a skinny belt to modernize the classic pattern. In 2014, the trend was spotted at Louis Vuitton, Maison Martin Margiela, Tommy Hilfiger.
This is the “it” pattern of the season for everything knit, especially sweaters. In winter a Nordic-inspired pattern details a slouchy cardigan, a mockneck sweater, a tunic, a collar sweater and many more. Fair Isle had a major moment on the winter 2011 runways at D&G (modelled by Chanel Iman), Rag & Bone, and Max Mara (modelled by Ramona Chmura).

As of A-listers, Victoria Beckham, Vanessa Hudgens, and Rihanna (wearing Yigal Azrouël) love this interesting pattern play that the Fair Isle creates. Besides, a Nordic sweater is a good weight for layering and embracing cool-weather style. Wear it with anything you like: jeans to achieve a casual look, leggings to modernize the classic pattern, or a skirt just like at D&G. In any case, you won’t go cold this winter!
