There’s something vintage and refreshing about being completely, comfortably chic in fair isle prints. If you’re lounging by the fire in the ski lodge—it’s the perfect pick, if you’re not—it’s even more perfect this fall. No need to jet set to Sweden to pick one up—designers are dotting the aisles with a little bits of this dreamy print everywhere we look this season. And, since it’s soft and stylish for you, dashing and dainty for your mini ones, and hearty and handsome on him—we pulled our favorite pieces for him, her and your little thems. In all Fair Isle-ness, shouldn’t they all be dipping their toes in this trend?

My Fair Lady.

It’s only right to start with you….right? Wrap up in a chunky knit version and throw on over leggings or skinnys for that oh-so-pulled-together look that just appears effortless. Our top pick is from Banana Republic at Los Cerritos Center ($175).

Life Just Got Fair.

Don’t leave them out just because they’re little—share the style love. Bundle them up in printed knit caps, or zip-up hoodies with Fair Isle flair. This picture perfect pink cap in our gallery is just the right start, we found it at The Children’s Place in Stonewood Center ($6.50).

Fair and Ruggedly Square.

He won’t be left out in the cold—tell him how fetching the outdoorsy look can really be, and he’ll want to layer up in a Fair Isle scarf, too. This version in our gallery is from Urban Outfitters at The Oaks ($24).
