Fair Isle with a Twist

There's nothing I love better than something that's a classic but with a twist! Take, for example, this super soft fair isle sweater, which from far away looks like your everyday, ordinary sweater but, upon closer inspection, has a sparkly surprise! The collar of the sweater is embroidered with shimmering sequins (I know, more sequins!), which makes it a fun spin on a winter staple. One of the other things that I love about this sweater is the color combination: the mint and yellow is a somewhat unexpected pairing but I think it totally works!

Speaking of unexpected pairings, I would normally pair this sweater with a pair of jeans, maybe even white jeans, but I was feeling a little "extra" on the day I put this sweater together so I opted for a silver pleated skirt. I liked how it played off of the shimmer of the sequins and also gave a kind of cool winter feel to the entire look. Apparently, I wasn't the only one who like the pairing because, when I was walking down the street, a woman rolled down her window to share with me how much she liked my look. I guess whenever strangers stop you for compliments, especially ones that require yelling out the window of a moving car, you know you have a winner!

  1. Katie, this skirt and sweater combination is so chic. Great styling. Thanks for sharing your great outfit at the Top of the World Style linkup party.

  2. Katie, this is so fabulous! And it is a super wonderful compliment when someone rolls down their window to yell a compliment! I love that. The yellow and mint are so pretty together. And the sequins and silver pleats work like magic.



Say hello to Hello Katie! I would love to hear from you!
