Twist Style Friday: Berwick
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.
Hello fashion-inclined Twistfans! We have arrived at another Friday. This week, I am sick! I am wearing a grubby t-shirt and stretchy pants. I haven't put on real clothes or mascara in a few days, because I have barely left my bed! So I bet you can understand that I went for the snuggliest, coziest, comfiest garment I could find in the latest Twist. I present to you the winner.
Berwick! Kristen Rengren's delightful kangaroo pullover seems like the most wonderful thing to be wearing when there's a chill in the air. I'm thinking late summer evenings, autumn afternoons, snow days; apres surf, apres ski, apres anything!
I would like to be wearing it with my stretchy pants and handknit socks until I feel like a real person again, but enough about me. Let's talk about clothes. I think the styling from the shoot is spot on; if you're into classic sillhouettes, a more voluminous top can be balanced out with a trimmer fit on the bottom. I think it's easy to see, too, how you could swap out those leggings for jeans, or cords, or dressier cigarette fit pants. If you are fimly planted in the "leggings are not pants" camp, you can add in another layer and put on a short skirt or minidress to bring down the hemline somewhat. What else could you wear with Berwick? Lots of things! In a punchy color, the outfit on the right (especailly with the boots) could read daytime or dressy, but if the sweater was black, with glossy buttons, it could almost go formal.
So, loves, how would you wear Berwick?
