The Perfect Fairisle Sweater
Fair Isle is a tough pattern to shop for, because so often the look can veer into territory that looks overly themed. Too much like holiday, too much like you’re shepherding sheep in Scandinavia, etc. There’s an art to it, and thankfully, INTERMIX has truly mastered the art. They’ve also made sure to deploy their brand-standard level of quality. So you know when you’re investing in their pieces, you’re making a smart sartorial decision that will last. Even better? You’re getting designer quality for a fraction of the price.
Here, I’m wearing the Ari Sweater from the brand’s own exclusive INTERMIX label. This wool-blend sweater with ribbed crewneck, cuffs, and hem is cozy, comfy, and incredibly stylish. The use of a delicate pattern in gold and silver against cream is what keeps it from feeling too themed. The softness of the overall look keeps it wearable. It’s everything I want Fair Isle to be, and very rarely find.
Complete The Look
Fair Isle sweaters, when done well, are wearable with a variety of looks. And here I’ve opted to keep things casual. My pants are an A.L.C. tapered trouser, my shoes are an essential pair of Veja low tops, and a cool crystal hoop earring elevates the entire look.
It’s absolutely sweater shopping season. And INTERMIX is replete with incredible knits to keep you warm and stylish from here through the new year. (Yes, I’m thinking that far ahead. I have to, 2020’s a doozy). For more of my favorite INTERMIX knits, look below!
