Twist Style Friday: Tarian

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 Twistfans!

 

It looks like a snow-globe outside my window right now. On days where the temperature isn't colder than Mars (it really happened!), I actually sort of love winter. I love hot beverages and wool and velvet. I love snow and scarves and excuses to snuggle. My the middle of February, I'm usually ready for it to be over, but in the meantime, I'm going to enjoy the sparkle-dusted streets and opportunity to flaunt my handknit accessories.

 

I finished my Burrard cardigan last weekend. I think I've worn it five of the last seven days. I don't have any great pics of me wearing it, or I'd post one here, but I think it's the best thing I have ever made for myself. It's also my fourteenth Twist project! I try to knit something from every issue, but that goal may be slightly beyond my reach.

 

Enough about me. Let's talk about texture-treat Tarian.

It's simple, but complicated! Plain, but not at all boring! Fun to make and easy to wear. This top is calling me, people.

I'm not knocking this white, I think it shows off the texture beautifully, and is super easy to wear. But folks... imagine the color possibilities!! I'm thinking about a tonal charcoal, or something saturated like a kelly green, or watermelon pink.

 

I think it's pretty easy to see how Tarian is the dreamiest thing to wear with sweats or jeans or whatever you happen to have on when you wake up, so I wanted to take her out a little. Someplace a little dressier. Someplace a little sexier.
