Twist Style Friday: Regent Revisited

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!! This weekend marks the beginning of one of my favorite things about spring and summer; leaving town for the weekend! I volunteer at a pretty amazing weeklong summer camp, and this weekend is our staff orientation. It's supposed to be chilly and cloudy, with a small chance of snow, and I am defiantly packing a swimsuit. 

 

I am also packing wooly sweaters and socks, including several I've made Twist patterns (Channa, Riverdale, Empoisonnee). I do find myself wishing I had made one of these though. Hello again, Regent

I have strong and specific memories of styling this sweater when we first published this lovely pattern in the Spring/Summer 2012 issue. It was shortly after we started doing Style Fridays, and I was still learning how to use Polyvore. I definitely remember clicking something by accident and deleting all my work. Oops!

Whatever yarn you choose for your Regent, this is a sweater that can take you anywhere. It's a swimsuit coverup in linen, an elegant formal sweater in silk/cashmere, or a feminine blazer in wooly tweed. In a neutral like this, I feel like Regent can stand up to some bright colors and bold patterns!
