Twist Style Friday: Lanai

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.


 

Wow, folks. It's July! Does anyone else feel like summer is pretty much flying? Gosh. We still have a few months of beach babe weather - and thank goodness -  I definitely have not had my fill of lake swimming. I'm the kind of girl that has more than one animal print bathing suit, so I need lots of occasions to wear those amazing objects. One of them has a kind of intense ruffle thing at the top, but I would totally wear my leopard bikini to the beach with this rad sweater on top.

Ok, so in addition to being completely adorable, Lanai seems like a really satisfying project to knit. You make the body in one piece, then make the fun short row yoke, and then attach it all together! I think it would be pretty speedy. 

 

Let's take one more look at the yoke details. Just a little lace, nothing fussy, and a great graphic shape.

Let's have a look at some outfits. I couldn't resist some bright colors with this one, the citrusy orange was basically shouting at me for more juicy brights.

The general theme here was lady-shoes and shiny accessories. How will you wear Lanai
