Twist Style Friday: Lindis

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.


 


Well this is just pretty.

Cables and knots in cobalt cotton. How could you not want to wear that? I was in just in Key Largo for my cousin's wedding, and it was a million degrees every day. It made me feel weirdly lucky, as a knitter, to live somewhere cold! Lindis, however, you could totally wear even in a really hot climate. From a distance, it's a simple tank with a pretty shape. Up close, the details are truly stunning. Check it out.

You could wear this super casual, but the icord edges and architectural details and refined enough to make it dressy too. Lindis is easygoing. She can hang with a ballgown or with yoga pants.

Three outfits

 

I have to tell you one story about this wedding in Florida, because I just can't resist and also it is about creating outfits. It's rare for my whole extended family to get together, but when we do, we are kind of a walking party machine. We are also silly, and forgetful, and sometimes disorganized. My mom's gorgeous sister Leslie forgot to bring the dress she had planned to wear to the wedding. My mom had planned to wear a two-layer dress (both layers sequined; my mom is a magpie), so they split it. My mom wore the underlayer, and my aunt wore the overlay with a slip underneath. The both looked gorgeous.

 

See?

If you have a mom, or are a mom, or have someone you think of as a mom-type person, I hope you got to celebrate with them, or think about them this past weekend.

It was so exciting and fun to see some of you get into the styling game last week when we did a contest for Peking. There's no prize this week, but we still want to know: how would you wear Lindis?
