Twist Style Friday: Chione
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 fashion friends!! I have been having internet-woes at my home this past week, so until my new modem arrives, I'll be composing outfits and writing posts from local cafes. I have a knitting buddy here with me today! She is also part of the Twist family- our lovely model Kate.That's her, on the left, modelling Trousseau. She fell a little in love with that pattern during the shoot, and so I made her one to wear at her wedding last fall. Sweet, right?? She is the cutest, I am sure you will agree.
It snowed here in Toronto this week, and people are starting to get into the holiday spirit. I don't celebrate Christmas myself, but I sort of love all the lights and decorations. I went to a tree-trimming party last weekend, and it was really lovely to eat cheese and hang ornaments and get covered in glitter with friends. So you'll understand if this week's outfits are a little extra sparkly. Maybe you're heading to a holiday party of some sort, and looking to make your handknits a little extra-festive, without wearing a reindeer on your chest; sequins may be your new best friend (they are certainly mine). I chose Chione this week because the lacy details look like sparkles, or falling snow. See?
The shaping is really classic and simple, there is lots of room to display blingy jewelry around your wrists or throat. It's sleek, but still cozy. Perfect, I think, for getting a little dressed up.
Those red shoes are from the recent collaboration between H&M and Maison Martin Margiela- I found myself at the fancy Yonge street H&M last week sort of by accident and spent some time pawing through the clothes. They were mostly arty and beautiful, but not super practical. Similarly, those shoes are kind of heavy, but so gorgeous. I loved them. It could be that for your festive occasions, you want to wear a bit more color. Like this!
Zing-pop! A friend of mine who works in fashion is newly obsessed with wide leg, silky pants. They feel like pyjamas, but look elegant. Lazy-chic could be a way of life. I've been dressing pretty business-casual for my internship these last few months, so I feel like my outfit dreams just get wilder and wilder to compensate for the boring skirts and black tights I wear nearly every day. Tell me, tell me please; how would you wear Chione?
