This Winter Micro-Trend Is Everywhere I Look—Shop the 24 Best Pieces

There are just some clothing items that return each winter. Leather trousers, lug-sole boots, puffer coats—they reemerge like clockwork come December and seemingly vanish by April until the cycle repeats the next year. Fair Isle sweaters are another reliably consistent staple of the cold-weather months.

It may be a mainstay of winter wardrobes, but the humble Fair Isle sweater is definitely getting a fashion upgrade this season. Designers such as Khaite and Tory Burch are tapping into the après-ski mood and putting their lens on things for what has to be the knit's coolest versions yet, from cozy cardigans to luxe mohair pieces and bright pops of color. Continue on to see the very best Fair Isle sweaters that winter 2023 has to offer, plus a few outfit ideas to match.

Rule number one of H&M sweater shopping: always spring for the Premium Selection style.

I bet Scandi girls will be all over this colorful one.

This pattern and color combo feel expensive to me.



The prints from Tory Sport have the prettiest color combinations.

Even the model looks like she's having fun in it.

And then there's Khaite's luxe version to blow them all out of the water.

I'm a sucker for anything in this pretty shade of blue.

I brought this V-neck on a recent trip to Aspen, and it was the best packing decision I could have made.

I love this nontraditional take on the classic print.

Well, at least you already know it looks good with jeans.
