Twist Style Fridays: Ceylon
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, knitters and fashion fans. Carly here with another installment of Twist Style Fridays. Let me just tell you, although summer is a dreamy time of year, it is more than the upcoming issue of Twist that makes me excited about fall. Fall is my favorite season for clothes. I love layering, I love awesome boots, and knitted accessories become truly valuable. You may even see a hint of an autumn influence on some of the outfits here today.
I got a little carried away with Ceylon, Kristen TenDyke's delicate knit tee. It's such a beautiful and versatile garment, as simple as a t-shirt, but with some lace detailing that makes it easy to dress up if you want to. Knit at a fine gauge, it is also a lovely layering piece. So get ready for lots and lots of outfits!
First up- casual looks with trendy denim. Bright colors, stretchy fabrics, and even prints are making their way into the most basic of basics: jeans. Obviously you can wear this darling top with standard denim too, and it could even be dressy with dark, trouser-cut jeans and some pointy shoes.
For the second round, I went for another set of variations on a theme. This time- printed skirts. I also tried to show how paired with different things, this top could be appropriate for ladies of various ages.
The third and final trio of outfits for today focus on a more professional context, and with three more versions of a wardrobe staple- trousers. If you are not much of a pants person, you could swap out the trousers in any of these looks for a pencil or A-line skirt in a neutral color; a blue-tinged pale grey would be really lovely, I think.
