Here’s a little info on how the Fair Isle knit originated. It was created in the north of Scotland in an island named Fair Isle from where it got its name. The Fair Isle knitting consists of symmetrical horizontal patterns of two different colors in each row. The trend of a Fair Isle knit was popularized by Edward VIII, the Prince of Wales in the 1920’s. He sported the Fair Isle knit sweater often on his golfing exhibitions.

The Fair Isle sweaters are a classy, snug and chic option to keep warm and cozy in winters. In other words, they are the ideal winter holiday sweaters.  Here are three different ways to rock the Fair Isle sweater. Team it with a flary high-waist skirt, tights and lace up boots. Or wear one with skinny jeans and pumps for a sophisticated look. They can easily be transformed from office look to cozy weekend look, yes – team it with a pencil skirt for work and swap it with super skinny jeans and booties for the holiday look.
