Twist Style Friday: Zenith

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 and happy Friday folks!


I have been sucked into some kind of weird fashion wormhole. I've been trying for a few years now to buy slightly more reasonable clothing sometimes; if I see a dress in a cut I love, and it comes in hot pink with yellow spots, or solid navy, I try to buy the navy (if it's on sale, I buy both). See, if everything I own is patterned and bright, then I end up looking a little clowny. I don't mind looking a little ridiculous a lot of the time- in fact I sort of relish it- but it's starting to be more important for me to be able to dress in a way that allows people to take me a little bit seriously, even though I have a silly haircut and facial piercings and could truly pass for a high school student although I'm working on my third post-secondary degree.

 

So I bought the plainest fitted black tank dress, and also a loose black tunic shirt/dress thing and have literally worn one or both of them almost every day for the last two weeks. Sure, sometimes I wore my absurd wooden platform cheetah boots, and sometimes I wore floral tights, but still. Solid black as my go-to? Am I okay?

 

Enough about me. Want to see this week's gorgeous sweater? Of course you do. Meet Zenith.

This sweater is cozy and comfortable, but also polished and elegant. It wears a bit like a blazer, with the delicate patterning and petite collar. Feel free to wear it sometimes with a wide leather belt  or a skinny metallic one in place of the lovely knitted sash. Here are some of my other ideas about how to wear this lovely wrap cardigan:
