Leave it to Sarah Jessica Parker to make a fair isle sweater look so damn chic. The actress strutted all over NYC wearing her colorful Splendid fair sweater with a pair of coordinating biker-style purple jeans, black booties, and her signature wrap sunglasses. And we love how her black tuxedo jacket dressed things way up. Mimic SJP's latest Fall style by pairing this similar Aqua fair isle sweater ($188) — or any other colorful sweaters you own — with a pair of similar purple jeans and a sharp black blazer.
Naomi Watts knows how to shield herself from the cold in style. On a recent stroll through NYC, the actress got cozy with this Splendid fair isle sweater ($188). On bottom she sported these J Brand corduroys ($176) and brown suede ankle boots. A simple canvas tote bag, a dark green trench coat, and a delicate gold necklace finished her casual look. Fair isle sweaters and stylish cords are quintessentially Fall, so score Naomi's exact sweater and pants now and start incorporating them into your cold-weather style.
When I get sick, all I want to do is squirrel away in some PJ pants and a hooded sweatshirt, but Fab reader MissBehave has a more fashionable sick-day ensemble. She looked stylishly ill in a cozy turtleneck fair-isle sweater, skinny jeans, and black over-the-knee boots. Her look makes me want to rethink my usual under-the-weather wear!
Congrats to MissBehave!
Everyone else, submit your looks, and I might feature you on FabSugar!
Nordic prints, also known as Fair Isle, have made a major comeback and I can see why. This interesting knit goes hand-in-hand with today's unfussy style and can brighten up any gloomy Winter palette. For instance, Ashley Tisdale's tee and denim combo would be nothing special without the help of her pretty Nordic cardigan sweater. Notice how the intricate print adds instant style to her casual outfit. Too busy for your taste? Take this trend in small doses via fun scarves or gloves.
Perhaps it's because they conjure images of hot cocoa sipped around a ski cabin, but for some reason, intarsia sweaters are a cold-weather classic. The name applies to those throwback knit tops with the graphics woven into the sweater—most likely snowflakes or some type of kitschy wildlife. Sure, they're a little retro, but they are also a lot of fun. Here are my favorite intarsia sweaters at both designer and non-designer prices.
