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.
The Friday of a long weekend is a special kind of thing. With an expanse of days ahead, I feel way more about to actually do things with my time off, rather than just trying to recover from the week that was and prepare for the one ahead. Right now I have three trays of roasting veg in my oven right now, which will become two kinds of soup before the end of the day (green tomato and cauliflower, if you were curious). In Canada it's thanksgiving, and you folks to the south have the day of Columbus. I have some complicated feels about the framing of history that these holidays present. I also love rituals, eating with people I love, and gratitude. Some far-flung friends are gathering in my town this weekend, and I am pretty stoked to revel in their company.
I've been joking about how I don't know how to wear shirts lately. I wore dresses and cardigans basically as a uniform for almost a decade, and so shirts are kind of out of my comfort zone. I am getting better I think at figuring out how to choose ones I like, and the world that is opening up before me is the vast and wondrous land of pullover sweaters.
I'm coveting this one hard.
I love the complex, twisty cable. I love the asymmetrical sleeves. I love the bold diagonal cable, like a prizewinner's sash across the front. And i LOVE this color. Whenever I look at it, I get this song in my head, and I think about this poem. I want to eat something pumpkin spicy.
How will you wear Trondheim?
