Twist Style Fridays: Ahni

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.


I don't think i even need to explain to you why I love this sweater, but I will anyways, because I love talking about clothes almost as much as I like shopping for, trying on, swapping, buying, owning, wearing, and otherwise looking at clothes. Ahni is a total dreamboat. She has a pretty, wide neckline to show off your neck and collarbones, or to artfully display your coordinating handknit wrap. Her stitch pattern is squishy and dense, The deep ribbing nods to the oh-so-trendy-right-now peplum, without actually being too peplummy. I'm a sucker for a defined waist in a garment- or the illusion of one. Pretty pretty.

You remember her- how could you forget? Let me introduce you though, just in case. She isn't shy- in fact, I think she's saying "come hither."


Ahni


She's detailed enough to be the star of an outfit, but also basic enough to blend as a layering piece, or with something patterned. Like so...

Ahni with pants-like bottoms

Witchy boots and this cap-toe phenomenon are really everywhere right now. I love the cap-toe thing because it reminds me of the shell-toe adidas sneakers from the 80s, or the classic Converse All Stars- but for fancy ladies and grown-ups (of which I am simultaneously both and neither)! But you can wear Ahni with whatever shoes you already have, I swear. Cowboy boots would work too.


Purple cowboy boots would be perfect.


Ahni with skirts

Stay warm with some opaque tights in a neutral tone, and feel very free to layer- just don't fight with the neckline- choose something similar in shape underneath, okay? A little gold chain would also be lovely, as would a big wooden bangle worn over the sleeve.


I can't wait to see what you'll wear with your Ahni. This horse is also eagerly anticipating your finished garments. Get to work! Please?
