Twist Style Friday: Hawser

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 folks!! Welcome to your weekly dose of of knitporn for the sartorially inclined. This week I'm thinking about apple based desserts, leather boots, and how happy I am that it is finally scarf weather. 

 

It might even be cool enough to wear this.

Hawser is an amazing sweater. She's luxurious, simply shaped, elegant, and cleverly constructed. You want to make this sweater (if you want to make it for me, I'll take it in a gold-y mustard hue in the 40" size. You can shorten the body and sleeves by a few inches to save on yarn - merino-silk blend please - and because I am short in stature).  I think this sweater willl look super on lots of body shapes and types, and the detailing at the top brings attention to your beautiful face. You can dress it tough, or sweet, or rugged. Go forth and be fabulous!

 

Hawser

 

Some of us (on some of the days) plan out what we wear. It's all on purpose. Other times, it's just all the things that were clean (or at least smell that way). What is great about an accessory or two, is that they can make your accidental clothes look like they are totally on purpose. Something about a great ring, or the perfect belt; it's like tying a ribbon around a wrapped present. It just makes it look more complete, even though the way the present was wrapped before was totally fine. Nice, even. In the summertime I can't really wear rings. My skin reacts to most metals, especially if its sticky out, and my hands swell when it's hot so my rings don't even fit. September is the time to reintroduce rings.

There are some great ones in this outfit photo. Oh, and some velvet shoes. Y'know. Because.

Pretty much anyplace you want to go, Hawser can take you there. Test out my theory; put on a chunky ring and see if it's the bow your outfit needed.

How will you wear Hawser?
