Fall Fashion Trends: The Fair Isle Sweater

Hello, World.

If you happened to see me at Christmas in the past few years, you know that I’m a HUGE fan of Christmas or Holiday sweaters. I spend months browsing for the perfect holiday sweater, and I get WAY too excited to wear the one I finally pick. I recently discovered, or rather re-discovered, the fair isle sweater…I’m in love. Sure, that’s probably a shallow thing to say, but I just love everything about this style sweater. It offers so much warmth, comfort, and, well, it just seems absolutely perfect for the season. I love how they have a bit of the holiday feel without being super in your face. They can be casual or worn to a festive gathering, and it’ll look perfect either way. I’ve compiled some of my favorite sweaters via Pinterest, and I just had to share!
So I’m currently coveting both of those ^ sweaters. I’m a huge navy, red, and white fan…call me patriotic. I just adore the color combo, and these sweaters feel like something I would wear constantly. Truth be told, they are both mens sweaters, but I don’t discriminate, so I’d glady take either. Unfortunately the bottom sweater is currently sold out a J. Crew, which means I’m probably going to aim to obtain the Brooks Brother sweater (top).

Sarah Vickers is probably the Queen of the fair isle sweater. Honestly, she can pull them off so well, and she has so many different variations of the style. I just love her sweaters, and her entire wardrobe really.

The College Prepster has the sweater on the left, and I just think it is so cute! It’s really outside my comfort zone as far as the general color combo and whatnot, but I think it’s just far enough outside that I’d like to try it! The sweater on the right is from Urban Outfitters (last year), and I love the mint. It’s a good mix between the preppy feel and the more urban (forgive me…) feel. It’s not quite as tailored, and can be styled off the shoulder(s). Also, it’s a little slouchy, which is always a good quality in a sweater.

What are your thoughts on the fair isle sweater?
