Twist Style Friday: Eliza

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.


 


Last night I went out to a play (RENT at the Lower Ossington Theatre) and I didn't wear a jacket. Not even my hilarious shortie denim jacket. Spring is officially here!!! Have you taken a nice slow flip through our newest issue? There is a whole lot of gorgeous in there. I'm super excited to play with these clothes over the next few months!


These days I'm trying to remember how to dress for warmer weather, and thinking about being fancy. I have three weddings and a b'nei mitzvah in the next six weeks, so outfit planning is taking up all my brainspace. What I should be thinking about is packing; I'm moving in two weeks!! I'm not leaving town, just moving to a new neighborhood, and a real pretty new apartment. There's no closet in the (loft!!!) bedroom, so it looks like my clothes will just have to be on display. Good thing my things are awesome.

 

Want to see something else that's awesome? Meet Eliza, my new best friend.

Slightly sheer lace, vintagey shape, and a gorgeous neckline? Yes please.

The above outfit (plus the name Eliza...) reminded me a little of Audrey Hepburn. This top is the perfect thing to wear with ankle length, black cigarette pants and ballet flats. You could also let the 50s-ish shape inspire you to wear it in a more Betty Draper sort of way (like the outfit on the left, below).

Spring is the perfect time for some of my favorite fashion tropes: florals and layering! I know some of you are going to hate the below outfit on the left; if the idea of wearing a sweater underneath a dress makes you itchy or angry, think about it with the sweater on top instead. That's how I had originally styled it, but when I swapped them, just to see, I couldn't resist this look! Things that are sheer across the shoulder have been trendy for a while now, and I think this is a sweet interpretation of that sort of look.
