With temperatures plunging into record setting lows, I have turned to my rugged Icelandic sweater to keep me warm in ‘Chiberia’. This hand knit Ralph Lauren piece uses a warm blend of lambswool, alpaca, and cashmere in an eye-catchingly colorful pattern. The Icelandic sweater earned its hype as a ski essential around the 1950s and is characterized by the unique yoke design surrounding the neck opening. Here I’ve paired it with some straight-leg Rag & Bone denim, waterproof leather UGGs, and a matching leather weekend bag for modern take on a classic winter look.
