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.
Carly here again for your weekly dose of fashion frolic. This time, I played with Marnie MacLean's gorgeous wrap cardigan, Regent. Especially in this delicious eggplant color, and sumptuous merino-silk blend, this sweater just drips luxury and elegance. Now, me, I am not exactly the elegant sort; I mostly like clothes that make me laugh. So my first impulse was to pair this piece with things that were a little off-kilter, like pink pants or a bubble-skirt.
I love these outfits- I feel like me and elegance reached a quirky compromise. Plus that rich color really goes with eveything! I also wanted to show you how pretty Regent can look open- all ruffles and drape. So here are a few more ideas-
Unbelted, this sweater takes on a new flavour, a sort of "I'm not trying very hard, I just happen to be fabulous" feel. I might just have to make one for myself. I asked Marnie if she might like to offer some ideas too, and she sent me these lovely options- a little more sophisticated, perhaps.
I love the idea of pairing a cozy handknit with a spangled gown! Layers of luxe. You can find these outfits and more on our Polyvore page- and we would love to see you play around with them too! It's really a lot of fun- kind of like playing with paper dolls, but you have all the doll clothes in the whole world at your fingertips. Tweet your creations at us (@twistcollective, #twiststyle), or post them on our Facebook page. We want to know- how would you wear your Regent?
