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.
The say the internet is an echo chamber but fashion's ability to to remain insular is unparalleled. And so as once was the way of Courrèges so now is the way of many designers with the sack dress. It would seem that relative lack of subtlety involved in a direct contrast of high and low is lost on many. And while we believe that style can involve three thousand dollars worth of accessories or twenty bucks worth of stolen goods and found items, we do ask for some vision or rigor in application. We cannot of course all be Mugatu's as the joke has been told. Nevertheless it is no difficult matter to find designers like Grey Ant with their darling Gold Lamé Sack Dress who imagine that the material can go just a little bit farther. A plain form, some precious material and the endless cycle of fashion searching for the immaterial inspiration that powers the material continues.
