Twist Style Friday: Ephyra

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! I don't know how stubborn winter is being in your various corners of the globe, but I want you to know that yesterday was the spring equinox, and it snowed in Toronto. I was so mad.

 

Regardless of what the actual weather is like, folks have been trying to will spring into being with brighter colors, canvas shoes, and lighter jackets. My friends are starting to talk about their summer plans, and I've started to make some of my own! I always get a lot of knitting done when I travel. I'm cooking up a lot of summer plans. Maybe too many; my list of possibles at the moments includes cottages, camps, folk school, an artist's residency, music festivals, and maybe a small triathalon.

 

Enough about me. Let's talk about clothes. This week's sweater, Ephyra, is super lovely! She's got asymmetry, unusual cables, and a cute-as-heck collar. See?

I think that cable panel is stunning. I love that a simple cable is echoed down the sleeves, and I think the shaping on this top is just perfect.

I think you could wear this top in tons of ways, casual and fancy alike. I would love to see someone make this in a deep chocolate brown, or a hand-dyed chartreuse. The pale cornflower of the sample though, is pretty perfect. It's a color I think of as Leah Dolgoy blue, because my bestie totally gravitates towards this color.

 

Probably because I've been dreaming about being lakeside this summer, the outfits below are inspired by mermaids.
