As we start to move from fall into winter, brands and retailers are stocking their racks and shelves with sweaters and heavier knits. It's been a few weeks since my last Trend Watch Tuesday post. So, I thought I would share one that we have seen come and go over the last several years, the fair isle print. Lately I have seen countless fair isle patterns popping up in magazines, stores and on blogs. This design delivers a classic, cozy, fire in the fireplace, hot chocolate and winter wonderland warmth.
J.Crew Factory Sweater // Mossimo Denim // Forever 21 Boots // Forever 21 Cross Body // T+J Designs Necklace // ASOS Heart Studs // Fossil Watch
J.Crew Sweater // Chelsea and Theodore Faux Leather Pencil Skirt // Forever 21 Over-the-Knee Boots // Forever 21 Quilted Bag // Betsey Johnson Bow Earrings // Wallis Stackable Rings // Essie Penny Talk Polish
I chose to style two J.Crew fair isle sweaters. One is from their factory store (on sale with and additional 30% off) and the other costs a bit more than I would typically post from the retail store. I couldn't resit and fell in love with it the moment I saw it. Sometimes you just have to splurge on something this magical. The detailed jewel accents are a statement all their own.
I must admit that I haven't purchased anything in the fair isle print just yet. It is definitely on my radar and a pattern that I want to add to my closet in the next few weeks. With lots of holiday shopping in my future and colder temps hitting Texas, these sweaters will keep me both warm and stylish. We also have a few holiday parties headed our way. I am hoping to somehow find a way to recreate the sophisticated soiree ensemble.
