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.
Marnie here, filling in for Carly, on another Style Friday. This week, I'm featuring a brand new design, released about a week ago. Conservatory, by Kate Gilbert, is a stunner of a stole. Long vines of paired eyelets evolve into a shower of leaves at each end. And the yarn, Tanis Fiber Arts Purple Label Cashmere Sock, features cashmere and nylon in this merino blend, making it durable and elegant. You can pair it with your most formal outfits, or wear it like a scarf for casual, work or outerwear. And being so light, you can pack it away in your bag, if it gets too warm. This is really an all-seasons piece, and would really compliment almost any wardrobe.
While we don't normally style accessories, on Style Friday, I thought I'd show you some outfits that would pair just wonderfully with Conservatory.
Stoles are incredibly versatile. A little online sleuthing will lead you to a variety of ways to tie a scarf, and many would work just as well with a knitted stole, and of course, you can unfurl it at any time to wrap it gracefully around your shoulders.
While Kate and I were meeting, we even joked about pairing it with silver hot pants. I don't know, I almost think it could work.
How would you wear Conservatory?
