Nothing says winter like a fair isle sweater. Here in sunny Southern California, last week brought just enough of a fall chill in the air to put us in the mood for cozy sweaters. Although it may have passed for a little while, it will be back and I plan to be ready.
On my wish list this week is this fabulous fair isle sweater from Victoria Beckham, paired with Burgundy jeans and subtle hints of pink in the form of pink sunglasses and rose gold diamond studs. This is cozy glam at it’s best.
1. Fairisle Sweater by Victoria Beckham. 2. Rose Gold Diamond X Studs by Eva Fehren. 3. Alice Shades in Cloud Pink. 4. Burgundy Mid-Rise Skinny Jeans by The Great. 5. Gold Python Embossed Flats by Alumnae. 6. Mansur Gavriel Burgundy Saddle Bag.
As obsessed as I am with this sweater, I’m not in the market for four-figure sweaters (and I’m guessing you aren’t either), so here is a more affordable way to achieve the same cozy-glam look this fall.
Full disclosure: I don’t know if I’ve shopped at L.L. Bean since my mom bought me my first pair of duck boots back in the eighties. But this nubby cable knit sweater, which is cropped to hit just below the waist, is speaking to me. I’m also crushing pretty hard on this rich, oxblood-colored crossbody bag.
1. Tumblinah Fair Isle Sweater from Club Monaco or Signature Cotton Fisherman Sweater from L.L. Bean. At Ease Gold Loafer from Free People. Conductor’s Crossbody Bag by the Cambridge Satchel Company. Rose Gold Vermeil and Diamond Studs by Links of London. Pink After Hours Sunglasses by Quay Australia (only $39!)
Either of these looks achieve the same relaxed-yet-feminine vibe for a nighttime football game or casual date night as the temperatures cool down.
More cool-weather outfits and sweaters will be coming your way soon! In the meantime, if you’re living in Southern California, don’t put away your sandals quite yet. It looks like we’re in for a balmy October.
