Twist Style Friday, the last of summer: Chainlink and Aphelion

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.


 

 

It is a happy Friday indeed, because we just launched our Fall issue!! I look forward to this all year, do you? I encourage you to take a long, slow flip through the pages, and let it all really sink in. I haven't chosen yet what my first project from this issue will be, and I have soooooo many UFOs, but gosh. So much pretty. 

 

Today you get one more taste of our Spring/Summer issue. We will start styling Fall next week, but there are two more lovely things to take a closer look at before we move on to the next season. I give you Chainlink

The cable pattern is stunning, and there is just the right amount of it. It has impact, but there is enough plain knitting to offset the visual and also to keep it a speedy knit. I asked myself: can you wear a hoodie with anything but jeans? Resoundingly, yes. 

 

three outfits

 

 

Next up is Aphelion. This is one of my favorites from the issue. I love the lace pattern and the cap sleeves, and the shape. It's cute, it's elegant, and you can wear it in a lot of different ways (including back-to-front; it's reversible)!

A little sweetness and a little toughness together make the best outfits, I think. Aphelion is a spoonful of sugar that perfects something a little sharper. Metallics, clean lines, and animal prints keep the sweetness at bay.

How will you wear Aphelion and Chainlink
