Twist Style Friday: Porto

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.


 


Happy Friday, weekend-friends! Here in Toronto, we have been celebrating the "first week of spring" with a resurgence of winter. It snowed all day yesterday, and a few times last weekend. Grumble. At least I am getting a lot of wear out of my handknit sweaters and accessories? My super-snuggly Maroni has sure come in handy.


You know what else would be great to have around? This sweater. Because it's perfect.

 

Porto

 

You probably want to take a closer look at that elegant neckline, gorgeous waist detail, and the simple lines of the whole thing.

 

Porto detail

 

I'd like one in pale grey please, or that ochre-y brown color that almost looks like peanut butter. The third size up (40.25) should be about right, but take the length up a little, would you? I'm petite. Anyone?


If you wanted a little more coverage, you could wear this over a collared shirt, or a pretty camisole. Me, I love an open neckline, probably because I have a pretty big tattoo on my chest, and it's like a pretty necklace I never take off. Here are some things you could pair with your Porto. Think of me as your knitwear sommelier.

 

Styling Porto

Lots of solid brights to make your own springtime, that's my prescription. How would you wear Porto?
