The Perfect Outfit: A Fair Isle Topper For a Wintry Look That Works

A fair isle sweater may be a ski chalet staple, but with a few key styling tricks picked up from Ladina from Milan, you can avoid looking like a snow bunny. The secret to this perfect outfit is to toughen up the sweet-as-shortbread sweater with a major bag and a skinny jacket, and smooth out the baggy silhouette with a flirty, casual skirt. Shake out your hair, apply a swipe of lippy, and you're ready to conquer the slopes (be they made of ice, or concrete--or in our case, both!). Here's some pieces to get you on your way.
