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.
As you read this, I am most likely in a mostly operational car with my friend Jenn, en route from Toronto to Montreal. We two are going to see some friends this weekend, and it was kind of a last minute decision! Impromptu roadtrip! So I'm writing to you all real late Thursday night; I haven't even packed yet and we hit the road early in the morning. I'm not complaining though; I am really excited to reunite with my Montreal yarn girls, a group that includes the lovely, talented Kate Gilbert. You can be jealous if you want. We might go to a roller derby game.
I'll be jealous of you if you have made this sweater. Pont Neuf. Sigh.
I love everything about this. The garter edging, the sleeve length, the sideways lace, the off-center buttons, the slightly boat-y neckline. I think I'm in love. Let's get a bit of a closer look at that lace panel, shall we?
Because of the asymmetrical fronts, you will probably mostly wear Pont Neuf closed, but you could open the last few buttons to make room for a pouffier skirt, or undo the top few and let the lapel fold down in front.
Check her out with some pants and cute footwear.
You could also try something a little swishier, summery shoes and a flirty skirt.
How will you wear Pont Neuf?
I'll say hi to la belle province, and la belle Kate for y'all. Happy Friday!!
