Like cross-body bags remind me of junior high, fair isle brings me right to college. And since that was, ahem, over 10 years ago it doesn't seem so unlikely that the trend is back. Word to the wise though... hop on this colder weather trend stat, because come April it will be sayonara to this style as we prep for warmer temps. Which leads me to my next point... while some wardrobe pieces can be carefully and stealthily transitioned from one season to the next, fair isle does lose it's fair-ness (shall we say) come spring!
Here's how to keep fair isle fresh and not frumpy this winter:
