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.
It's Friday! I'm drinking coffee out of a mug that matches my manicure, wearing a dress that matches a different part of my manicure, and the weekend awaits! Also, it's brutally cold in Toronto today, but starting on Sunday, the temperatures are going to be mostly positive integers, so that is pretty exciting. What I'm saying is, it's a pretty good day.
This week's sweater is a serious beaut. I think it might be my favorite in the Winter issue. It's simple and cozy and the details are perfect. I even think the original color is perfect. Riverdale, you're a total dreamboat.
I love the cozy collar and the dipped hem. I love the rustic buttons and the length (bum warmth is important!). My favorite detail though is the beautiful cable panels that run up the sides and around the set in sleeves. In Tosh Vintage, a lovely worsted, knit at a slightly drapey gauge, she could be a spring coat, or a layer under a winter one. This is a multi-season beauty. I want to take her to summer camp for cool nights on the dock, and wear her under my warmest winter coat, snuggled up to the leopard print lining of my black wool.
I feel like Riverdale is a ready-for-anything kind of sweater, so mostly my styling prescriptions are for great boots and a big purse. Adventures await, even if you just stay inside.
How will you wear Riverdale?
