Twist Style Friday Double Trouble: Bevel and Couronne

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 lovelies.

 

It's getting to be that time of year, when the weather cools a bit more, the leaves drop, and people start thinking about winter. If you're a small-space liver like me, you're packing away summer clothes and busting out the sweaters that have been in boxes or suitcases in the dark recesses of some closet. Personally, I love winter, and not just because it's an opportunity to drape myself with epic quantities of wool on a daily bases (though that is totally a reason).


For those of you who are less enthused about the falling mercury, take solace in this: a new issue of Twist is baking right now. That's why I'm featuring *two* sweaters on Style Friday this week; we have fewer weeks before winter launch than we have sweaters left to style. I won't say by how many, because I'm sneaky like that.

 

Let's look at the sweaters.

So beautiful, and so different!! Couronne is a stunning floral yoked cardigan with an easy shape. Those flowers repeat down the sides, see?

For stying, I've imagined it a bit like a girly jacket; perfect for throwing on top of a cute dress and tights to fight off the early morning chill.

 

Couronne four ways

Yes, those *are* velvet shoes on the bottom right, and no, I am not sorry. Not even a little bit. I also highly recommend stacking floral patterns. I can't wait to see the gorgeous color combinations knitters dream up for this one. I also saw a clever knitter pullover-ize this, and it looks awesome.

So. Bevel. The lines are gorgeous; ropy cables crossing the body. Let's be serious, this is a sexy sweater. Let's have another view, shall we?

Maybe you should take her out on the town.
