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.
I wore a wool sweater this week. One evening I wore a wool sweater, scarf, wrist warmers, and a jacket. Knitters, our time of year has finally arrived.
My newest opportunity to knit comes about because a bunch of my favourite people are really into the World Series, and baseball games are LONG. I'm not sure why there are 9 innings, but that sure is a lot of knitting time (especially when it only gets exciting in extra innings). I like championship sports because it's the time when sports are most like movies about sports. There is usually an underdog, and some character development, and some kind of climactic moment. It's great. In game two this week I developed a crush on LA Dodger Yasiel Puig, because he's a dreamboat and also we have the same hair.
Meet Scarrington. A highlighted raglan line always reminds me of the baseball tees I was fond of in the early 2000s. This is a little more refined.
I love the way the diminishing cables flow into the raglan lines. I like the high neckline, and the fabric density. a DK sweater is a solid one to have in your closet. It's lightweight enough to use as a layering piece, but also warm and snuggly enough to go it alone.
Take a look at those cables!! They're lush in texture without being overly complex, and the hem finish is so lovely and exact.
I say, go for texture! Leather, tulle, wool, or velvet make for a lush fall outfit, and highlight the textural contrast between the sleek body and cabled sleeves of this piece.
How will you wear Scarrington?
