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.
Hello sartorially inclined readers! Carly here with our first installment of Style Fridays since the (oh so recent) launch of the Winter issue. I had trouble deciding where to start styling, there are so many gorgeous garments in this issue. I hope you've had a chance to leaf through it slowly and drink in all the pretty. It's so exciting to be part of a community that creates so much beauty- all you knitters included!
So. Onto the clothes. We begin in Koleine. Check her out; she's a dish.
Right?? I mean reallly. The graduated welts, the simple cables, the generous collar; this sweater is cozy and elegant and super flattering. I don't use the word "flattering" a lot, because often what people mean by that is something like "makes you look skinnier than you are" and I don't personally think that skinnier is always better, or that people have to work towards concealing things about their bodies. I think all bodies are good bodies, and when I say that I think a garment is flattering, I mean that I think it would look beautiful on a large variety of body shapes and sizes. That said, I want to give you a closer look at that waist detailing; check it out. Curvy ladies- this sweater was made for you.
So we've seen Koleine casually, and I wanted to play with this sweater in ways that were a little dressier; even (dare I say) business-casual.
All you really need is a knee length skirt and a smart bag to take her to the office. How would you wear your Koleine??
