Twist Style Friday: Viridis 2.0

Published on Friday, 03 June 2016 08:45

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.


 

 

Friday has arrived! My weekend began early, when I got into a car with two dancers, a huge pile of green fabric, a kiddie pool, and some very large crystals, yesterday morning. My friend Eroca has an uncanny knack for being able to talk me into things I might not otherwise do (examples include: 8am boot camp classes, karaoke, believing in magic), and this weekend I have a small role in a performance piece of hers. Eroca once wore only onesies (rompers, unisuits, coveralls - they go by many names) for a full year. She knitted a piece of fabric so long that she had to tow it behind her bicycle, rolled up in one of those trailers you can put a child in. She lives by a fashion credo: always look amazing (sometimes abbreviated to ALA), and she nearly always does this while wearing comfortable shoes.

Viridis is stunning asymmetrical cardigan with lace fronts and a button and belt closure.

You knit the body in one piece, and then knit the lace sideways by picking up stitches along the front edges.

She is one of the garments in our Déjà-Vu collection, which means that I've styled her before. This time, I thought about Eroca; that means brights, prints, layers,  flat shoes, quirky accessories, and a big purse. 

 

 

How will you wear Viridis?
