Twist Style Friday: Fathom
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.
Fathom is the focus of this week's fashion frolic. I like alliteration, could you tell? Your style maven has a cold this week, so I might be a teeny bit loopy. I tend to pun even more than usual when I'm under the weather.
I don't think my illness has had any negative effects on my taste in clothes (though tasting my food is another story altogether), but you tell me! Let me know on Facebook what you think about these outfits.
First, our customary refresher course, Fathom 101, as seen in the pages of Twist.
In form, this sweater is pretty unique. The asymmetrical lapels are really beautiful, and create lovely lines on the body. The lace keeps it looking delicate, but it has some structure too. Let's look just a little bit closer.
In function, I think of this sweater a bit like a denim jacket, or more precisely, like some kind of beautiful knitted love child of a cozy blanket and a structured blazer. Which means you can literally wear it with anything. Go on! Ok, I'll give you some examples.
You can use it to dress down a frilly frock, or refine ripped jeans and plaid. You could wear it hiking or out to dinner. How (and where) will you wear your Fathom? And if anyone wants to knit me one, I'll take it in deep red- oxblood, ideally. Have a stylish weekend everyone!
