Twist Style Friday: Ratana

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.



You may or may not have noticed that I have been on a bit of a glitter kick lately. Depending on your personal feelings about sparkles, you could be relieved or dismayed that there will be no sequins in today's outfits. I am still a proponent of metallics mixed with knits though. The textural contrast is just so lovely!


Today we turn our attention towards other kinds of loveliness, beginning with this week's feature garment. Here she is: Ratana.


Ratana, Sleeve


Pretty right? The lace keeps things real feminine and delicate, but the sweater is hefty enough to be cozy and warm. From any angle, this cardigan is beautiful.


Ratana, back


So you've seen her with jeans, but how else might Ratana work? Day or night, she pairs nicely with dresses that nip in at the waist.

I think it would also be really lovely as a snugglier alternative to a blazer. Here are some ways to wear it for a more businesslike setting.
