With a chill in the air, nothing is better than throwing on a cozy sweater to keep yourself warm. Fair isle is a popular and on-trend style for sweaters, whether crew neck, v-neck, cropped, long, or cardigan.  Victoria Beckham, spotted wearing a black patterned, Fair Isle sweater, proves that this style isn’t just for the mountains.  Pair with skinny pants and keep accessories to the minimum as to not over power the pattern.  Here’s how to create this look yourself in the Boston area.

It all starts with the Fair Isle sweater. This long tunic like one from Delia’s is not only trendy, but the price won’t break the bank at $44.50. It also brings in the popular stripes trend seen in stores and on celebrities all year long.

In lieu of denim like Victoria, try a pair of skinny velvet jeans. This J Brand pair is sleek, sophisticated and adds something unexpected to the look if you are willing to shell out $190 for them.  You can buy J Brand at Bloomingdales in Chestnut Hill and Neiman Marcus in Boston or Natick locations. Or opt for a more reasonable priced Gap pair for $69.95, either way you’ll be well on your way to high fashion.

Finish off the look by tucking the skinny pants into a pair of flat booties. This short, suede style has come back winter after winter, so these are a classic piece you’ll wear every year. Designed for Nicole Richie’s House of Harlow 1960 you can find this pair at Cusp, they will cost you about $158. Remember suede is a bit pricier.  If you hunt around for a good deal you can find a knock off for around $80 like this pair from DSW.
