Fair Isle Sweater Outfit with White Jeans for Winter

The Nordic/Fair Isle trend is hot right now, and wearing white jeans for winter is fresh and fun. I combined both to create this modern fair isle sweater outfit.

How to Style a Fair Isle Sweater Outfit with White Jeans for Winter

I say it all the time, but the key to wearing white jeans for winter is to make sure they look intentional by pairing them with winter colors and/or heavier winter fabrics.

This fair isle sweater is cozy and soft and decidedly winter, and I like how the white in the knit repeats the white from the jeans and pulls the look together.

Unfortunately, I had this entire post written before I realized that it sold out over the weekend. #bloggerfail I decided to go ahead and post for outfit inspiration, and I linked up some other fair isle sweaters at the end of the post.

I went with grey booties, but grey over the knee boots would be cute as well. I wish I’d photographed this look both ways to show you the options, but it didn’t occur to me at the time.

Either way, I like grey shoes with this because it repeats the grey in the sweater, and grey pairs so nicely with white jeans. Mine are sold out, but this pair is similar.

I’ve tried quite a few fair isle sweaters lately, and a lot of them are tight across the shoulders and upper arms due to the stitching, but this one isn’t at all. It’s quite soft and cozy, and very comfortable.

I also like how the turtleneck isn’t super tight. I usually pull mine down in front like you see here. It’s more comfortable to me, plus I have a short neck, so I like to show as much of it as possible so I don’t look like I’m wearing a therapeutic neck brace, ha!

These white jeans are my Paige Verdugo ankle skinnies that I have had for an age, and they’re still going strong. They’re thick and not see-through, and they’re incredibly flattering and comfortable to wear all day. I recommend sizing up one from your normal size. For reference, I’m wearing a size 30, and I usually wear 29 in Paige, and 28 in AG and LOFT.

For less expensive white denim options, I like the LOFT Modern Skinny and the Old Navy Rockstar.

I kept my accessories simple with oversized pearl studs, and somehow I forgot to put on my rings, but I normally wear my wedding rings as well as a fashion ring on my right hand.

This fair isle sweater outfit is so easy to put together or copy with similar wardrobe items, and it’s a fresh and fun way to wear the Nordic/Fair Isle trend this season!
