Twist Style Friday: Shoofly
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.
I'm exaggerating the identity crisis a little, but only a little! Being a flouncy femme is a major part of how I situate and understand myself in the world. Clothes are communication, and it seems like I have some different things to say right now, even if I'm not quite sure what they are yet.
We're on the precipice of springtime here in Toronto. I've seen some serious overeager underdressers this week, folks with bare legs and hoodies instead of jackets. It's supposed to snow all this week, but we had one warm day, and some people packed up their winter stuff and refuse to take it back out. I sort of admire that kind of gumption.
This week's sweater is a dreamy one to have around when the teasing seasons are messing with your mind.
Let's take a closer look at those details. These colors are gorgeous, and think of the possibilities when making your own! I would love to see someone knit the contrast colors in an ombre pattern, with three variations on the same color. A greyscale would be lovely as well. Now that I'm thinking about color variations, if the main color was dark, that would also shift the look of the whole thing.
This sweater is so classic, so clean. My first impulse was to style it similarly, with solid colors and simple shapes.
Yeah, you know me better than to just leave it at that. I call this set PATTERN ATTACK!
Have fun with your clothes, whatever that means to you (even if it means pants).
