Twist Style Friday: Literati

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.


 


Happy end-of-week, readers. It's been a nice one, very autumnal. I also had the opportunity (along with many members of Toronto's Downtown Knit Collective) to see a whole lot of Twist garments in the flesh (or rather, in the wool). We had a bit of a fashion show, with some local designers in attendance (such as Barbara Gregory, Laura Chau and Elizabeth McCarten hosted by the indomitable Fiona Ellis, and Kate popped in as a surprise co-host. You can look forward to a blog post about the event, with lots and lots of photos (courtesy of Glenna C, designer and photographer extraoridnaire).

 

I tell you about it now because seeing garments from the magazine live - and being able to touch them, squish them, and try them on - makes it so easy to fall in love with them. This is just one of the sweaters that I am now majorly crushing on. Literati, you are so pretty and cool.

Let's take a look at a closer shot, because you need to see the patterning up close, and you really, really need to see these buttons.

 

Literati detail

 

This sweater is for all kinds of nerds. You should know that I use the word "nerd" with complete affection and glee. To me, a nerd is someone who is really, really, really excited about something (maybe lots of somethings) and is not remotely embarassed about it. That thing could be Star Trek, or comic books, or astrophysics, or (ahem) knitting, or the history of religious iconography. Being a bit of an enthusiasm-enthusiast myself, I think nerds know what's up.

Okay okay. Here are some clothes.
