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.
Spring is definitely springing, Twistfans. Today on my lunchbreak, I walked to the park a few blocks from my office and sat on the yellowed grassy hilltop in a sunspot and ate a blueberry scone. My fingers got really cold but it was totally worth it. You too can be an overeager outdoor spring person; the secret is wearing lots of wool.
Have you met my pretty friend Verden? I think you might really like each other.
A slightly scooped neck, a little lace, some pretty cables, and a dreamy drapey alpaca-wool blend spells an airy pullover that will keep you cozy in the cool spring air. This chainette yarn is super durable, so make it in a classic colour so you can wear it for years and years to come. On 5.5mm needles, this will practically race off your needles.
I personally love a sweater that has a little extra coverage in the back, because it means it won't expose my back when I'm riding my bike. The slouchy shape mostly made me want to pair this top with leggings (VELVET ONES!!) or jeans, but I also think you could pair this with a pencil skirt, especially one with a little flair. You'll look effortless.
How will you wear Verden?
