Happy Tuesday, all! The regular Tuesday Would You Wear It post has a twist…Would You Wear It or Gift It: Fair Isle.
This display at JC Penney motivated me to look at the would you wear it post in broader terms.
Winter fashions always feature the classic fair isle designs and inspirations.
Fair Isle is “a style of knitting clothes using different colors and designs in wool which are repeated in rows. It was originally developed on Fair Isle, one of the Shetland Islands.”
Of course, it’s popularity has been vast in North America and their are many versions.
So, let’s get started today and answer…Would You Wear It and Would You Gift It?
WOULD YOU WEAR IT OR GIFT IT: FAIR ISLE
When I was in JCP recently, there were at least four displays with their North PoleTrading Company Fair Isle patterns.
The idea of asking would you wear it and would you gift it hit me at that moment.
Let’s begin with you to answer Would You Wear It?
This is the NORTH POLE TRADING COMPANY FAMILY WOMEN’S MOCK NECK LONG SLEEVE PULLOVER SWEATER...and it is very affordable.
The fashion merchandiser has styled it with black jeans…would you wear it as styled?
Please answer if you are a Fair Isle fan or not?
JCP offers us a way to stay current but not break the bank.
Consider also what you think about JCP going full in to offer fair isle styles for the entire family…do you think the whole family would wear it?
While you are thinking, here are the links for the other display family looks. However, I cannot find the men’s crewneck online, so the link is for the V Neck Sweater:
and I personally like the MENS CARDIGAN.
Now, would you wear the women’s cardigan?
Of course, we cannot forget the sweet little babes.
NOW, WOULD YOU GIFT IT…WOULD SOMEONE ELSE WEAR IT
As far as gifting goes on this fair isle pattern, there are many options in scarves, hats, socks etc.
This is the NORTH POLE TRADING COMPANY ADULT BEANIE.
There is a KIDS HAT also.
but, I like the NORTH POLE TRADING COMPANY REINDEER SOCKS!
AND, do not forget the family dog! NORTH POLE TRADING COMPANY FAMILY DOG SWEATER.
WOULD YOU WEAR IT…or WOULD YOU GIFT IT?
You can also check out NORTH POLE TRADING COMPANY for gifts and decor.
JCP is another retailer creating a fun space for holiday shopping…displays and offering just put a smile on customer faces.
After I touched this one, I almost took home the FAUX MINK SHERPA.
But, Mr. B would have looked at it and then over at the other Christmas throws and said…SERIOUSLY?
But, this is a nice one and grandchildren love soft blankets.
Also, speaking of grandchildren, JCP has fun activities in store of you to pick up for holiday fun with kids.
I cannot find them online, but they do look like something young children would enjoy.
Family traditions can be started at any time…and decorating ornaments with them would be a fun one to continue year to year.
OK, ladies, it is your turn……
Fair Isle patterns? Would You Wear it? Would you gift it?
Cannot wait to read what you think of these displays at JC Penney’s.
Please give us your thoughts and make sure that you all……

Remember, you can shop ANYTIME with the links under the page at the top called SHOPPING LINKS...and I will receive a small compensation for your shopping.
Also, if I have posted a link on a specific garment, and you use that link to go to the website of the brand, but look around and buy something else, I still get credit…though you do not buy what I am wearing.
Please ask any questions… this income helps keep me here, because even at age 70, Mr. B and I need additional income.
Thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone who shops this way.
