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.


 

 

Today is a good day, friends. My dear friend Eroca has been staying with me and my housemates for a little while, waiting for her visa to come through so she can embark on a round of artistically driven (and grant funded!) travel. It's been a bit of a debacle, but as of this morning she has both a passport and a Brazilian visa. Right now what I want to tell you about is Eroca's amazing style. She approaches dressing the same way she approaches knitting- conceptually. She once knitted a over a mile of scarf to use as a projection screen. In 2014 she only wore unisuits every day. Literally every single day she wore a jumpsuit, bathing suit, overall, coverall, romper, or other sort of top + bottom clothing item. 

 

I can be an outrageous dresser. I will admit to wearing leopard print every day this week, and purchasing a pair of shiny gold jeans yesterday. I even took a selfie of my shiny gold butt and posted it on Instagram.  But even I cannot bring the level of performance and deliberateness to my clothing the way this lady does. 

 

We can all agree, however, that this sweater is awesome. Look. 

 

 

Nevyn, a grey cabled cardigan that closes with a zipper, modeled outdoors by a brunette woman in red pants and glasses.

 

 

It's a basic enough cardigan that you can wear it with pretty much anything, especially in a neutral color like this. The stunning part of this one is actually the back. The cable section is super pretty, but also gives the top a little bit of an hourglassy shape. Check it. 

 

 

Same sweater from the back, has a diamond shaped cable medallion at the center back

 

 

I think Kate's styling is pretty perfect (like usual), but I like my outfits a little... well... sillier. If my clothes make my smile, that starts my day off pretty well. Below you will see a lot of things with spikes, because spikes are fun. I love slightly aggressive accessories (aggressories?). Lately I have been wearing a lot of rings, enough to make my hands feel heavy. It's great.

I will admit that these outfits were partially influenced by this extremely strange and amusing webcomic. You should probably click that link (you're welcome).

That last one on the right is totally an Eroca outfit (since the year of the unisuit ended, anyways). 

 

How will you wear Nevyn
