Get ready for Fall with this Prep School classic.
The iconic argyle sweater has always been a fall time favorite and with fashion always reinventing itself it now comes with a couple different twists.
Argyle, a pattern comprised of diamonds in a checkerboard arrangement,first originated in 17th-century Scotland. It’s always been associated with a preppy standard, but now with the implementation of animal prints , superimposed prints and even cutouts, the old argyle is some trend that we used to know.
Ferragamo’s argyle sweater comes embossed in silver snake skin cut out diamond patterns. With the unlikely accent, a simple pleated skirt just won’t do. This new twist calls for leather! A black leather skirt or skinny pants would make for the perfect addition to this hot look. The combination of the two edgy materials is sure to create the perfectly chic fall outfit.
Stella McCartney’s Astro navy geometric knit boatneck sweater comes in an exaggerated superimposed argyle pattern in chunky wool and alpaca mix. The navy, evergreen and cream ensemble stays true to the typical argyle fashion, but that’s where it stops. The over sized kimono sleeves give the sweater a tunic like feel and goes perfectly with a pair of black leggings or a pair of winter white skinny jeans.
