Want to be festive without going full-on Christmas jumper? Well, you might want to snap up a Fair Isle knit, with its gorgeous patterned yoke, and that nostalgic feeling it gives you, like you need to be on top of a mountain somewhere enjoying a mulled wine or two while watching skiers whizz by. You see, this post came about after I feel hard for an Isabel Marant beauty, it was gorgeous, it even had alpaca wool, but at £350 I had to say no, sadly, and then I found this cutie in Primark for £11. Yep, I totally lucked out – this jumper is so perfect for this winter chill, but don’t worry, I have you covered – I’ve picked out some of my favourites, including three luxury beauties in case you want to ask Santa!!!

There’s so many cute Fair Isle knits out there on the high street – after a bright pop head to Oasis, their neon knitted essentials inspired by the Shetland Museum and Archives will brighten up any cold, winter day, or want a traditional feel you can’t get better value than this Next beauty, less than £30 and so perfect, it’s kind of the cream version of the one I’m wearing.
For a twist on the classic try Joules’ jersey top, got the stripes and a Fair Isle print, so win, win and less than £30, or want more warmth this one from M&S will do the trick, and both will look amazing just thrown on with jeans and some comfortable boots. For a bargain, Boohoo has two great options for £20, and if you aren’t over the mustard trend just yet then this New Look Fair Isle knit will be perfect for you.
