Fair Isle Leggings: Look of the Moment

Fair Isle

The Fair Isle trend has been around for ages, but it didn’t become truly fashionable until this season. The Fair Isle pattern (think wintry snowflakes) can be found on everything from oversized beanies to knit sweaters. According to the masterminds behind D&G, there is no piece of outerwear – or even underwear! – that cannot be worn in the kitschy Scottish pattern. Fair Isle is finally looked upon as chic and edgy, but only when worn in interesting and unexpected ways. 

Take a cue from this lovely lady snapped by Stockholm Streetstyle. She makes the pattern on her legs look both savvy and urban. She chooses a Fair Isle print in a unique color combination – pink, brown, yellow, and green! Her wintry leggings are the center of attention, as the rest of her look is simple and neutral, with a beige blazer, black sweater, monochromatic hiking boots, and dapper fedora. She’s carrying a black patent leather tote bag, which adds a little edge to the eclectic Fair Isle print.  Find out how to get a similar look below.
