Its that time of the year when you walk in to a shop and you’re bombarded with Christmas jumpers. Some pretty, some funny and some just plain gross.
Now i’m quite partial myself to some festive dressing, especially on Christmas Eve (me and Neo last year in Gingerbread man jumpers), but i’m not one to don a tinsel clad sweater from November.
Also i know lots of people who just don’t care for festive sweaters.
So with that in mind i think the perfect way to give a little nod to the festive season couldn’t be easier than with a fairisle scandi inspired knit.
There’s a plethora of beautiful knits around at the moment and with a cold front imminent (according to Mr Weather man its going down to 2 degrees Celsius next wee. Not gunna lie, this sort of excites me. I’m weird i know, feel free to admit that, but i do love a good dry cold snap and piling on the winter woolies and snuggling under blankets, anything’s better than this god awful rain we’ve been stuck with for weeks on end. Cheers for that Storm Abigail! But i digress.. as usual)
Now seems the perfect time to find a couple of options that could work well for you.
You see the thing i love about a Fairilse jumper, is its a knit for life not just for Christmas, and by that i mean, its not just a one day Christmas wonder. These beauties can be worn lots of ways and still look pretty darn good if you ask me.
This is the one i bought a few weeks ago and love
Here’s a couple of ways i’m loving my Nordic knitwear styled up
Next up adding a gilet over the sweater, some leather trousers and my beloved biker boots. I love this look. It feels like it brings some edge to the Nordic knit. Perfect for a day out Christmas shopping and a spot of lunch.
And finally, a little outfit for when its freezing outside, but you’ve got that pub/christmas doo to go to. this could be perfect.
A little black skirt, some heeled ankle boots and some sparkle with some statement earrings and clutch bag
Plenty of Fairisle sweaters on the market right now.
Here’s a few that have caught my eye this week
A little bit black and yellow with the Monki option, definitely swerving any Christmassy connotations, but could look gorgeous with some faux leather.
The Brave Soul knit is a pretty little number, love the oversized hem and patterned continued on the sleeves.
Going very Scandi traditional here and these look simply divine. From Swedish outdoor clothing company Fjallraven these beauties are a little pricey but think of all the winters you would get out of these. These just scream to be worn with some Sorel boots, Parka coat and a bobble hat for some pure winter delights.
Lovely right? Defintely my favourites.
Trusty F&F up next
A little embellishment is always welcome in my eyes, this time of year just begs for a bit of sparkle.
And of course some traditional snowflakes.
George at Asda caught my eye this week too, these two beauties are delightful
Love the yolk neckline and just the slightest hint of glimmer on these. Plus really on the money at just £18. Prefect for a dabble with the fairilse style.
What are your thoughts on Fairilse sweaters? Love or loathe? Do you own any and if you do how do you style yours?
