Some clothes provide function, expression, and comfort, while others evoke an entire mood, and fair isle sweaters are absolutely a mood! Whenever I see fair isle knit, I’m swept away on a cozy weekend in a chalet with a cup of hot cocoa, riding boots by the door. They’re familiar, classic, and not too sweet.
When it comes to styling, it’s sort of a pick your own adventure. Lean into an equestrian vibe a la Ralph Lauren with a barn coat and corduroys, or coordinate contemporary styles with the colors of your knit, like I did with a leather mini skirt and knee high boots. Even cool girl brands like Khaite sent multicolor knits down the runway this year, giving me the feeling that they’re as relevant as ever.
