Twist Style Fridays: Harrow
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.
Welcome to another Twist Style Friday! Carly here, with another dispatch from the land of fashion. I get excited about clothes. I mean really, really excited about clothes. Making these outfit posts is actually so dangerous, because it makes me want to wear (and therefore want to knit..) all the patterns! It's also still staggering to me how much the feel of a garment can change when it's styled with different things. This is why we continue to bring you these entries- to help you see all the glorious possibilities for wearing these wonderful things. As always, we encourage you too, to play with these clothes, send us your ideas, and share your opinions about styling through Twitter (#twiststyle) and Facebook.
When I am creating an outfit, I usually start with the most special or unusual piece- something that calls to me, and then build other stuff around it. With this week's knit, Megan Goodacre's lovely Harrow, it sort of happened in reverse! I kept happening upon interesting and special pieces (statement skirts, loud shoes, a sparkly bag, some truly pretty cuffed trousers), and like magic, Harrow was there, ready to be the perfect complement.
Styled appropriately, you could wear this top to any occasion. My advice- pair it with any neutral bottom, casual or dressy, and special accessory (like a unique bag or a bright shoe). Here are a few examples:
How would you wear your Harrow?
