Victoria Beckham's Nordic Style Made Simple

What: The Fair Isle trend returns!

Why: Victoria Beckham was recently more covered up than usual in a stylishly conservative Fair Isle sweater by Alexander McQueen. This trend pops up every winter, and I have never really taken to it. The sweaters just always seemed so dowdy to me. But thanks to an injection of crisp new colors and playful shapes, the Fair Isle is back in action. So here are a few of my new seasonal favorites:

1. Mrs. Beckham opted for a fitted version of the classic sweater, but you may choose to oversize it and pair with some leggings or skinny jeans. Try the button-down cardigan ($178) from French Connection as a cozy option. If different colors are more your forte, there are plenty of palettes to choose from, ranging from deep purples to metro grays.

2. Instead of a sweater, you might choose to procure a handbag that sports the noticeable knit. Blake Lively was spotted with the Stella McCartney bag ($1,195) but Gap makes an adorable, budget friendly version ($14.99) as well.

3. And for those of us who want to stick to the cold weather basics, hats, scarves, and mittens come in fresh new patterns and colors this season that spice up the Fair Isle look without losing that classic appeal.
