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.
Back again, with another installment of Twist Style Fridays! We hope you're enjoying this new feature as much as we are- tell us what you think on our Facebook page!
Today, we play with Twill, Kristen Rengren's lovely jacket with herringbone details. This piece is super-versatile, since it combines elements that are casual (pockets, raglan seams) with ones that are more dressy (standing collar, high-neck closure, classic shaping).
Some people think I'm super-stylish because I wear dresses every day, or that I put way more time than other people do into getting dressed. But the secret is that mostly what I am is lazy; when you wear dresses, you only have to choose one thing! Then you put on some shoes, and maybe grab a jacket, and you're dressed. Plus, since I love color coordination so much, if I have to choose too many pieces, I get preoccupied with all the tones matching. All this is to explain why my first impulse was to style this jacket the way I would be most likely to wear it- with a girly dress and some cute sandals, for a summer evening.
I know that not everyone is a dress-a-day person, and not everyone is as lazy as me, so maybe you want to choose more things to go with this darling jacket. Let me tell you- it looks great with everything, as long as you don't overwhelm the collar with other collars. Here are some ideas-
So knitters, how would you wear your Twill?
