Twist Style Friday: Philodendron

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 fashion fans!!

 

I was in a pretty serious fashion pickle last weekend. I was in New York for a wedding. My darling friend Eli, who has been in my life for 15 years, tied the knot with his love at Queens Farm, as tiny little ponies strolled by and a perfect summer breeze blew. The weather that day was literally perfect. The rest of the weekend however, was hotter than I can even describe - and more humid too - like wading through hot soup. I was not prepared to dress for that (I'm not sure I know how to dress for that, my body was definitely made for colder climates), so I had three tops, a skirt, and a pair of cropped pants that I could wear semi comfortably.  Whether I was getting tattooed in Greenpoint, having brunch in Williamsburg, eating oysters in Gowanus, or seeing a Tony-winning musical (based on a graphic novel), I wore the same five things.

 

The outfits I made for this week's sweater - Philodendron - are kind of like that. You could mix and match any of the pieces and accessories and they would work together well. It's almost a capsule wardrobe.

Now let's take a closer look at this stunning sweater

I love how the leaf motif travels vertically on the back and horizontally on the front. It gives the sweater a kind of asymmetry without actually being asymmetrical. The sleeves are also awfully pretty.

I really recommend wearing something bright or even a little sparkly underneath to peek out through the lace.
