Top 5 of the week: Left-of-preppy Fair Isle sweaters

mes demoiselles

You can’t quite tell from the picture, but the Fair Isle print here is all in silver and gold metallic, rendering it quite awesome.

splurgetastic option that is as much Baja stripe in feel as it is Fair Isle.

joie black

Black on white gets so excellently graphic (and here’s your bonus similar-but-cheaper option).

berry combo

The poppy berry-on-berry color combo here is what keeps things from coming off too trad.

Adorably apres-ski, ever-so-slightly Peanuts.

    I have a good friend who despises anything Fair Isle-ish. But I don’t care, I love them anyway!

    Could be the whole preppy connection that inspires resistance. I wonder. It is not that one dislikes actual preppie people, of course. Just if there is a connotation of snooty. Still… this style probably started somewhere Scandinavian anyway, right? Reindeer and what-not. (Thank goodness no one named “whatnot” in that list. ‘Cause I’m not going to stop…)

  2. Love the berry on berry. Great for acres ski….or planting tulips in November. 🙂
