Twist Style Friday: Pinion

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 friends! I hope everyone got a bit of time off in the last little bit to spend with nice humans, eat delicious things, and relax a bit. It's back to the grind for me this week, so I'm feeling a little less glittertastic, and chanelling more professional, put together kinds of looks. Don't worry, there still might be some wacky shoes in our future.


We're looking at Pinion this week. If you've been keeping up with Style Fridays, you know I love a cardigan, and this one is no exception. I think my jaw may have actually dropped agape when I first saw this sweater.

One of my clothing problems is that I don't own anything plain. I love to buy and make special, unique, whimsical things -but- you can only wear so many wild and whimsical items at one time. I'm trying to learn how to incorporate more neutrals, but I just don't like spending money on clothes that seem boring to me. When I knit this sweater, I think I might use less contrast (like two shades of blue, or two shades of grey) so I could treat this amazing sweater like it was plain. I think it would still look just as special.


Toronto winters make me want to guard myself against the world a little bit. People are cranky; everything is a bit grey. I feel fortified if I am wearing something that makes me feel just a little bit tough, like dark lipstick, or a spiky ring. I think these two looks are both a little bit tough, but in really different ways.

I included a couple of shoe options for the femme-ier outfit on the left, because I know those weirdo boots are not for everyone. I couldn't resist them though!

So, how would you wear Pinion?
