Twist Style Friday Double Feature: Floriston and Cayley
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.
Let's look at Cayley first. This top is sweet and cozy. I often want to contrast sweetness with something else, but with Cayley, I just wanted to revel in the sugary a little bit.
Floriston's shape is perfect to pair with full skirts, but that isn't the only thing she plays well with. She's polished and pretty in any situation. Check it out.
See you next week!! Happy Twistiversary everyone!!
