How To Wear It:Take them out of the ski lodge with skinny leather pants and heels or a slim knee-length skirt and oxfords. Avoid the kitsch factor with a subdued palette, like a traditional Scottish Fair Isle, or one that weaves a bit of bright into a neutral setting. If you want to wear a different pattern on the top and bottom, keep them in the same color family, as perfected at Vera Wang.
