Fair Isle Sweaters Are Exponentially Cuter Than Solid Knitwear


The term après ski gets thrown around a lot during winter. If you’re not acquainted, it’s essentially a fancy way for saying what to wear in a drinks-by-the-fire kind of environment. This usually entails a lineup of cozy separates, including a really great sweater. This year, the Fair Isle knit is the way to go when it comes to stylish layering. It’s superior to its solid counterparts because it makes enough of a bold statement that you can wear it with jeans and still look polished or you can double-down and layer it over a slip skirt for a supremely cool holiday party situation. It’s a December MVP and if you don’t own one already it’s time that you do.

 

The term Fair Isle is named after an island north of Scotland and the technique originated from this remote location many, many generations ago. However, the look has become popularized and is typically used to refer to these intricate patterns incorporating around four colors.
