Twist Style Friday: Sigulda

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.


 


By some amazing alignment of stars (and schedules), two of my closest  friends and I are able to meet for breakfast every Wednesday morning. From there our lives diverge in a lot of ways, but these ladies have been pretty much family for a long time and I am so grateful to have them to talk to and share pancakes with. This week were were talking about spring fashion, and though we have totally different styles and body types, somehow we were all in agreement about what we wanted to be wearing when the warm weather arrives. Our consensus: crop tops. Take that as you will.

 

I can't wait til summer. In the meantime, we knitters have more time to keep working on that blanket project that may have to be pushed aside in warmer weather, and to keep on wearing our wooly sweaters and accessories. This week's sweater is a cozy delight. I recommend wearing a crop top underneath, like a summer secret.

Waffle textured shirts are a staple for me in cool weather. They grab onto warm air and keep it close to you. Plus they look squishy and wonderful. I love how the yoke of Sigulda breaks up the texture and draws the eye towards your face. A neutral background is a great place for a pop of color too. It's like the sweater is wearing lipstick. In terms of styling, my principal prescription is quirky shoes.
