Fair Isle Sweater Outfit

Greetings on this fine Monday morning! I hope you all had a good weekend. I have a fair isle sweater outfit for you today.

I was so happy to wake up this morning and find this sweater was restocked overnight because it was almost sold out yesterday, and I was bumming. It seems like retailers just can’t keep fair isle sweaters on the shelves this year!

The one I posted last week was low inventory, but it was also restocked over the weekend, so grab it now if you want it.

This one is from J.Crew, and it’s currently 40% off + an additional 15% off with code MONDAY. That brings it down to about $55.

I really like the fit, although it does “bubble” a bit around the neck. After I wore it all day, it settled in and didn’t do that anymore.

It’s made of polyamide/lambswool, which I did not find particularly itchy or bothersome, but I know some of you are sensitive so I wanted to point that out.

Besides the gorgeous color palette, I really like the length — at 23″ it’s perfect for me, at 5’5″ and short-waisted. It comes in 2 other color ways if you want other options, and it runs TTS. (I have the small, for reference.)

I kept the outfit casual and paired this sweater with AG Farrah raw hem ankle skinny jeans in a classic mid-indigo wash.

The contrast of the navy sweater with the lighter blue denim is a pleasing combination, and there’s some light blue in the sweater that ties them together as well.

These jeans are 25% off right now, and they’re my current favorites. I wear these or my other Farrah ankle skinnies (they’re a little darker) at least 5 days a week.

You can find more AG Farrah skinnies at Amazon, if you’re hunting for some different options (prices vary).

I gave my jeans about a 1″ cuff so that they didn’t fall into the back of my booties. These booties are by Jeffrey Campbell, and they are super comfortable.

They’re padded inside, and the 3″ stacked heel is stable and very walkable. In fact, I wore these all over the mall on Friday, and my feet felt fine.

I kept my accessories simple with a pair of 11mm pearl earrings. These are down to $324, which is a crazy good price for the size of these pearls, and here’s a faux pearl option.

A fair isle sweater outfit has such a festive flair for winter, especially around the holidays, and I’m really loving all the styles and colors available right now.

The fair isle design is a classic, but it’s also having a moment this winter, so I rounded up some more options below!
