Fair Isle in the City

Liz_OLDNAVY_003 Liz_OLDNAVY_004 Liz_OLDNAVY_009 Liz_OLDNAVY_013 Liz_OLDNAVY_015I’ve teamed up with Old Navy to bring you three looks centered around one of my favorite winter trends, fair isle. The winter months are long here in Chicago, but that doesn’t mean I don’t love to bundle up and take advantage of our beautiful city. My fair isle sweater is somewhat of a statement compared to other items in my closet, so I’m always looking for new ways to change it up.

On days when my schedule requires that I dress a bit more professional, I love to mix casual pieces with tailored items in my closet. These pants are the perfect contrast to my sweater and help to disguise how comfortable I really am! The plaid shirt provides a fun pop of print against the fair isle and adds an extra layer of warmth during these cooler temps. If I find myself downtown with an hour to kill, I love popping into the Art Institute for some mid-day inspiration.

One of my first stops is always Millennium Park for a photo opp at the Bean. I always strive to feel stylish when I leave my house but comfort is key when my day is spent walking all over the city. This fair isle sweater is an outfit in itself and I love how it looks paired with casual basics.  Such a fun, easy look for a day of exploring!

One of my tried and true favorite trends is mixing prints and I love the simplicity of this black and white skirt paired with the bold colors of the fair isle sweater. My favorite trick when it comes to mixing prints is creating contrast between the two by mixing a small-scale print with a large-scale print. I promise it always seems to work!

How will you wear fair isle this winter? My sweater also comes in two other colors and is the perfect pop of print on a cold winter day! Also, I’m featured on Old Navy’s website today! Check it out here!!
