How to Wear a Fair Isle Cardigan | Over 40 Smart Casual Menswear

My Fair Isle cardigan and check shirt with a pair of jeans really makes me feel that the colder months are on their way! The great thing about this cardi is that it doesn't scream CHRISTMAS ONLY at you when you wear it. Thankfully, the design is abstract enough so that you can just grab it and go and it lends itself as a layer to just about any casual ensemble. >>

The plaid shirt just keeps a dose of colour in the outfit, my boots are absolutely perfect for this look too and the two-tone aspect of them gives a nice interest to the whole piece.

Without the need for really heavy duty coats yet, (which is amazing for Britain at this time of year!) there is definitely a few weeks of getting in some cardigan action... so make the most of it.

Do you have a regulation Christmas sweater that has to come out for the festive period? If you do, let me know what it is and how you got it, I'm sure there's a story or two on this!

    Take care,

    1. Thanks Daniella. I wasn't too sure at first but I think you're right, the combination does go together (and I just wanted to get the cardi out anyway)!

      Best wishes and have a great Christmas
