Fair Isle Made Modern

Fair Isle patterns really aren’t my thing.

They just harken memories of bad 1980s sweaters like these:

All 80s sweaters via liketotally80s

And yet … they’re suddenly everywhere. 

Over the weekend, I saw a cute outfit in a magazine pairing a Fair Isle sweater with an icy blue skirt. Specifically, this Fair Isle sweater from Old Navy:

This rings in at less than $40.

And then I opened up the latest Boden catalog to see this:

I like the neon pink color pop.

Here’s another option from J. Crew Factory:

If you’re not ready to commit to the trend, these accessories are a start:

Splendid scarf

And even though this Boden Hat & Mittens set with a matching Scarf are technically for tweens, I could still see them being cheery and fun for adults:
