Twist Style Friday: Barberry

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.



Happy Friday everyone! This was a heck of a week for a lot of folks. We hope everyone's safe and sound.Here's an extra cozy sweater to keep you warm when the winds get blowing.


Barberry


Wearing this is basically like being snuggled all day. At the moment, I can't think of many things better than that. Barberry is a versatile hoodie- easy weekend wear with jeans or leggins and a super soft tee. But, you ask, can I wear it to the office? I think you can. Then again, I think leopard is a neutral, so take my judgement as you will. Or take a look at these outfits, and judge for yourself! The only thing to watch- if you plan to wear it buttoned up-is to wear something with a high enough collar thay you can see it above the neckline, or else you might look like you forgot to put a shirt on (or you deliberately went shirt free- who am I to judge your intentions??). Keeping the palette in one color family, or mixing with neutrals will keep it from looking too junior (if you worry about that sort of thing). I would love to see it in petrol blue, or a deep ochre. Fall is for saturated colors.


Barberry, gussied up


How would you wear Barberry?


ps. Just in case you forgot, here is a reminder that you can also make a Barberry for a more teacup-sized human. Everything is cuter in miniature, right?
