Twist Style Friday: Sablier
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.
It's been fun but also hectic styling a zillion garments a week! Today we're looking at just one. Sablier, a cozy cabled cardigan with perfect pockets.
The cable pattern isn't too complex, which makes for a relaxing knit. But the gentle wave of the ropy cables, the easy shape, and slanted pockets make this a dreamy sweater. The generous length and collar make it extra cozy.
I think the styling of this in the shots above is spot on. A soft collared shirt and jeans are a perfect match for this kind of snuggly sweater. But Sablier can do more than that. You can nudge her towards librarian-chic, or toss her on over a vintage dress. With a sweater that's meant to have a little ease, you can also employ one of my favorite methods of keeping real warm when the snow flies; sweaters over other sweaters. It's kind of brilliant, if you think about it.
How will you wear Sablier?
PS. When on the internet, I am usually doing too many things at once, and so I very nearly made those links to the patterns for Sablier go to a (legitimately great, but completely unrelated) youtube video. So, if you want to feel charmed this afternoon, click on that and watch a bunch of men talk about how uncool it is to harass women.
PPS. As always, with the internet, stay away from the comments if you'd like to keep your cheery disposition.
