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.
Hi again! Carly here with another exciting installment of fashionable Friday! Today I played with Marnie, Kate Gilbert's sweet lace top. This item is a winner, friends. The boatneck and lace details are pretty and feminine, a three-quarter sleeve looks lovely on just about anyone, and you can adjust the length to be perfect for your shape and proportions. A higher neckline keeps things totally profesh, even if you're busty.
Here's how you saw it in the Spring/Summer issue-
For my first set of looks, I stuck to a daytime vibe, but tried to show some different ways to wear this lovely sweater- layered over a fancy frock to dress it down; with a flowy skirt and floppy hat for a sunny afternoon stroll, perhaps along a beach; and with some truly awesome (okay, slightly outrageous) printed pants for a lunch event, museum date, or other slightly schmancy daytime occasion. I had brunch with my very sassy octogerarian Bubbie last weekend in Montreal, and she would wear the heck out of that outfit on the right, possibly with additional bling.
But let's be serious, this sweater can also be sexy. For this next set, I used a lot of a color that I hardly ever wear- black. I know I'm a weirdo in this respect- black is super useful. It matches everything, it's sleek, it's dressy, and it never goes out of style. So here we go, way out of my comfort zone.
Whichever way you wear it, wear your Marnie well! I can't wait to see more of these as FOs. Remember to tell us what you think of these outfits, and show us your styling ideas on Facebook or Twitter (#twiststyle).
