Twist Style Fridays: Capriccio
Every Friday we feature one of the garments from the magazine in a post about styling. We suggest different ways to wear the garment in question using mock-ups from Polyvore. We encourage readers to tell us what they think about these outfits via our Facebook page or Twitter, and if folks want to make their own outfits, please tweet them at us with the hashtag #twiststyle. You can find all of the Style Friday posts here.
Extra-happy Friday everyone; a new issue means so many more patterns to play with on fashion day! I hope you've had a chance to take a slow flip through the magazine and pick some faves. I'm here, as usual, to show you new contexts for these garments. First up for the Polyvore treatment is Capriccio, Robin Melanson's lace-panelled, textured-cowl pullover. I'm loving this sweater. Something about the architectual details on the sleeve and the strong lines on the lace panel. It's exactly the thing to pull on after a day at the beach, when the stars are coming out and your hair is still kind of wet. But that is just one dreamy Capriccio-wearing scenario! I have so many more to present you with.
Here it is as you've seen it already-
Seems to me that you could also wear this lovely top to the office (left), a fancy restaurant (middle), or to someplace more casual (left). Neutral bottoms, cute shoes- you can't really go wrong.
Then again, maybe you want to be wearing something a little brighter? These next outfits are variations on a pretty tight theme- melon-hued skirt, neutral but unusual shoe, cute bag- but they still all seem like really different girls, going to different places. The one on the right is going to a cool party; maybe there's a band playing. The one in the middle is strolling around town, running some errands, but meeting a friend for dinner later. The one on the right is going to the ballet, or to see a play. Probably later she'll have a martini.
We'd love to hear what you think of these looks- holler at us on Facebook! If you have ideas about how to wear Capriccio- have at it, and then tweet your creations @twistcollective, #twiststyle. Have a great weekend!
