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.
Yes, sartorially inclined readers, this is our third consecutive double feature fashion friday. Yes, this means Winter (the issue, not the season... although... you know) is coming. I biked to work today and my fingers were awfully chilly. It's supposed to snow here this week. I have to admit that I never grew out of the wonder little kids feel about the first snowfall. I mean, sparkles literally fall from the sky; it is sort of amazing.
We're looking at two lovely garments this week. First up is Silverstone, an understated cabled henley that can be buttoned up into a cozy turtleneck.
To me, especially in this color, this top seems like a really really pretty version of a long underwear top. Perfect for outdoor activities in the cold, or snuggling up to a fire with a cup of hot cocoa. In a saturated color (especially a jewel tone!!) it would be more like a pretty blouse. You could wear it with a knee length skirt and suede heels. Or charcoal cigarette pants, ballet flats, and a big chunky silver cuff. Or like this.
See that burgundy leather jacket?? See it? It's perfect. With Siverstone, or just about anything else.
Well maybe not with Sarannis, since that is also a jacket. A really, really cute jacket. See?
Maybe we need to go in for a little closeup. There is some seriously squishy texture going on in there.
Make it with a little extra ease and wear it over a hoodie or other sweater and jeans for when the weather is really biting, or knit it closer to your measurements and wear it like a smart little cardigan to bring your summery dresses into a few more seasons.
Don't forget to wear cute shoes.
