Twist Style Friday: Thorntower

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.


 


Last night I watched the first few episodes of a really terrible Australian teen drama called Dance Academy. I have a weakness for dance and sports themed movies and shows because they have so much drama and teamwork and triumph! In case you share a similar proclivity and want to know my all-time faves, Friday Night Lights, Mighty Ducks, and Take the Lead are standout films in this genre. In this one, the ingenue has an ongoing feud with her scheming roomie, and one of the many nasty things roomie girl does is email to everyone in the school the pro/con list the protagonist made about pursuing her crush, dreamy older dance guy (and half-brother to her best bud). The pro list includes such gems as "the way he talks about things" and "he smells like Christmas."

 

I have a tendency to get enamoured with things (and people, and projects, and ideas). So here for your viewing amusement, is my crushed out pro/con list about this week's stunning sweater, Thorntower (but first, some pics)!

I had a lot of fun styling this, because I think the shape and lines of it make it really wearable in a lot of ways. It can be a cozy weekend sweater, an officey blazer, or an evening jacket, depending what else you wear it with.

I put two shoe options with the outfit on the far left, because I think you could easily go cutesy with it, or the weird creepers take it to a kind of femme-punk place.

 

How will you wear Thorntower?
