F**k Yeah Fall Fair Isle

Fair isle, possibly the most overtly autumnal of sweater patterns, can be a bit on the loud side—even traditional palettes lean towards a riot of golds, oranges, browns and purples, with the idea that this one piece will provide enough texture and interest that you can toss it over a plain shirt and trousers and still make some kind of statement.

Fair isles also come in muted, quiet variants, but F**K THAT. This is no time to dial it back. If it doesn't look like you just rolled around in a pile of leaves then you aren't doing it right.
