Twist Style Friday: Astra

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.

Astra three ways

Those slightly strange lace boots could go with any one of those outfits, and I think they suit Astra's vibe perfectly. I gave some alternatives in case white lace heels aren't everyone's cup of tea. The blushing boots might be just about the cutest thing ever.

How about you? How would you wear Astra?
