Fair isle, the knit pattern that instantly transports us to an Aspen ski lodge where we're sipping hot cocoa, is one of winter's most iconic prints. And now, it's become one of this season's hottest trends. The cozy topper has been spotted on celebs such as Victoria Beckham, Hilary Duff, and Rihanna, proving that this traditional look is appropriate both on and off the slopes. But with such a seasonal item, we decided to hit up the style blogs for ideas on how to get the most wear out of this look. Jennifer Engren of Fashionista To Garmento, Laura Gommans of The World Looks Red, and Erica Matos of Pretty All The Time demonstrate how to put a modern spin on the classic piece.

Jennifer Engren of Fashionista To Garmento
Jennifer is a fashion merchandising student living in New York City whose chunky gray sweater is one of the most affordable Nordic-themed knits we've seen. At just $10 from H&M, she could have nabbed two...or three. We also love how Jennifer wore it with knee-high rubber boots, another wintertime staple.

Amsterdam-based blogger Laura's beige, reindeer-print cardigan from Zara has a whimsical (but non-cheesy) feel. That's probably because the neutral shade of her topper keeps the allover print subdued instead of overtly loud (don't confuse fair isle with ugly Christmas sweaters!). Paired with winterized shorts and chic accessories, Laura shows us how this casual look can get the dressed-up treatment.

Erica Matos of Pretty All The Time
The cinched waist on blogger Erica's wrap sweater from Old Navy is a flattering fit and works well layered over her gray Charlotte Russe leggings for a casual, comfortable outfit. The combination of colors in the sweater also make it more versatile and a less traditional option than other fair isle prints (which might feel a bit too yuletide-heavy for some).

I love these two as a couple. What a festive way to celebrate two important events in their life. Mariah looks like a dream.
