J.Crew Fair Isle Sweater Review
I'm wearing an XS here.
This sweater caught my eye right from the start. The price turned my away just as quickly. However, I ended up grabbing it when there was a sweater promo + my 30% off cardholder deal. And still, at almost $100, I think they could have done a little better than acrylic as a main fabric component..... but whatever. I figured that if the sweater was 100% wool (or even close) it would be overly-warm and thick, so that's how I'm justifying being ok with just a high "fake" content.
Moving on. I really really love this sweater paired with black leggings. I wasn't certain I was going to keep the sweater and it was just hanging out in my closet - getting to know my other sweaters - but I found myself getting excited to wear it, so I did. I feel much better about keeping an indulgent purchase if I wear it right away.
Bottom Line: TTS for JC sweaters. It's a touch itchy, but I found it to be comfy with just a tank layered underneath. The pattern is super cute and I love the snaps on the neckline. Definitely a keeper.
