Twist Style Fridays: Epidote

Published on Friday, 06 January 2017 10:12

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 fashion fans! I'm doing some funny time travelling this week, because I actually wrote this early in the week, before heading to Mexico for the wedding of a pair of dear friends of mine. I'm taking a break from packing to kibbitz with you folks about knitting and clothes, while I await responses to my Facebook status post about how many bathing suits, books, and pairs of shoes one should ideally bring to a week-long beach party. 

 

I won't be wearing any sweaters at all this week, and although I am a lover of the cooler seasons in general, at the moment I am not feeling at all sorry about being in a hot place for a little while. Below you will see a tiny taste of the winter wonderland-ness of my tiny friendcation over New Years, pretty different from the upcoming one. I'm a lucky guy, you guys.

We are here to talk about sweaters though, so let's take a look at this week's stunner. Hello there, Epidote

The back of this makes me so happy. Just imagine how lovely and squishy all that delicious cabling would feel snuggled against your back. This springy wool comes in lots of great shades, and is kind of a steal

I love the way the cables continue over the shoulders to the back, and down the sleeves. This is a dense knit, but in a fairly fine year, it won't be bulky. 

 

 

The blond wood buttons made me want to stick to pretty neutrals (and really great shoes, obviously). 

 

How will you wear Epidote
