Fall Trend: Fair Isle Knits

Today, I had the pleasure of being invited to the Topanga Nordstrom Rack in Woodland Hills, California to check out their plus size section. This is probably one of “the” biggest Nordstrom Racks I’ve been too. The plus section had different designers and a few clearance racks! Yay!! If you’re a Southern California girl, I’d definitely check it out. I found a few tops and two cardigan-wrap sweaters. One of them caught my eye the minute I walked in. It’s a white and grey Fair Isle design. I can’t wait for it to get cold so I can wear it!

If you’re wondering what Fair Isle is, it’s a traditional knitting used to create different patterns with a variety of colors. It’s named after a small island named Fair Isle north of Scotland, part of the Shetland islands. You’ve probably seen the patterns before and you’ll definitely see more of it this season. Here are some perfect examples:

1. Dorothy Perkins £20.00 2. ASOS $16.17 3. Lane Bryant $128 4. Dorothy Perkins £38.00 5. Macy’s $78.90 6. Macy’s $52.20 7. Style369 £30.00 8. Style369 £38.00 9. Lane Bryant $89.95 10. Dorothy Perkins £32.00

Disclosure: I was not compensated for this post. I was gifted a Nordstrom gift card for my purchase. The above is my true and honest opinion.
