Twist Style Friday: Tuin

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 Friday Twistfans! Friday doesn't mean the same thing to me as it does to most folks, since I almost always work on the weekend, and while most folks dread Mondays, I almost never work on those! It is a topsy-turvy world. Regardless, I still look forward to Friday, and one of the reasons is this dedicated time to talk about knitting and fashion.

 

This week's featured sweater is Tuin, and she is a stunner.

The shape is classic, the yoke is stunning, and today it was extremely windy and I wanted to be wearing three of these in layers.

A few folks have made this already, and with gorgeous results. Some knitters have kept the main color steady throughout the sweater, and only had the stranded details in a contrasting color. This option makes for a top that is a little more neutral, because the contrast is less striking. Either way, Tuin is a looker.

 

An easy shape and turtleneck are a natural fit with jeans, but I wanted to see what would happen if I put Tuin with some skirts, and you know what? I think it works beautifully.

With cute flats and earrings with a little sparkle, I think this pretty top can take you just about anywhere.

How will you wear Tuin?
