Twist Style Friday: Maeshowe

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.


Yes, it's Friday again, loves. Time to talk about clothes! It was pretty icy here in Toronto today so it's no wonder I was drawn to Robin's snuggly pullover Maeshowe. At a glance this sweater looks pretty simple- classic silhouette, gentle shaping, soft fuzz- but there is a lot going on here. There are the vertical cables up the front, back, and both sleeves, and the ribbing on the yoke slopes gently. There are a lot of lines and angles, almost like this sweater is a drawing of a sweater. I'm feeling pretty smitten with it right now. When you knit one, make the sleeves just a tiny bit long, so you can gather them around your hands when the cold wind blows.

See all those lines? Stunning. You know what else is stunning? Shoes. So many amazing shoes. I may or may not have gone slightly overboard on the footwear this week. Take a gander.

That studded skirt has been calling to me for weeks. This sweater was just calling to be paired with something a little bit tough, or a lot bit whimsical.

How would you wear Maeshowe?
