Catwalk fashion on a budget: fairisle knits


There’s nothing quite so stylish this winter as D&G’s fairisle knits, nor so practical.
The Italian design duo’s Autumn/Winter 2010 catwalk show was one that all of our mothers who have so often told us to “wrap up warm” would have certainly approved.
Luckily for those of us whose budgets don’t quite stretch to D&G’s prices, the high street have jumped on the trend and created – or knitted (!) – a whole host of warm and fashionable pieces to suit all tastes and budgets.

Clockwise from top left: Dorothy Perkins Red bow fairisle cosy boots; Dorothy Perkins Ivory reindeer cardigan; Topshop Knitted Snowflake Jumper; Peacocks Chunky Scarf; Peacocks ballet slippers; New Look Knitted Fairisle Dress; Dorothy Perkins Oatmeal heart fairisle scarf; Peacocks slipper boot; New Look Belted Reindeer CardiganDorothy Perkins Red reindeer fairisle socks; Topshop Knitted reindeer jumper.

All of the reindeers are making me feel very Christmassy indeed. I have yet to purchase a fairisle knit piece but I have my eye on Topshop’s reindeer jumper to snuggle up in on Christmas Day.
Have you bought any fairisle knits this winter? Are you planning to?

    Lovely post! At the moment I'm loving the fairisle knits and I've been looking for a jumper, the topshop reindeer one is perfect 🙂 I will probally like you be curled up in it on Christmas day, attempting to keep warm.
