Twist Style Friday: Farro

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, knitters. I am writing this to you *super* late, and it's because today is my BIRTHDAY and I had a really slow morning and an exceptional brunch before remembering that today is also a Style Friday-day! 


I've been thinking a lot about dressy clothes lately, because I have a dear friend's wedding coming up, and also this time of year there are a fair number of occasions for which I can wear sequins. To be honest, I advocate for the wearing of sequins even on completely unfancy occasions, because they're beautiful, and also because they're quite warm! It became real winter this week here in Toronto, and I need all the tiny reflective plastic discs to insulate my cold body.

We're looking at Farro this week, and gosh I love a big shawl. They're great to stash in your office for those days when you just need to wear a blanket to get your work done, they're basically a whole extra warm layer under a coat without adding a ton of bulk, and they can also be a stunning accessory in a dramatic outfit.

I also love a mix of lace and cables, and Farro has it all, not to mention the absolutely delicious, drapey sheen of this 50/50 merino silk.  YUM. I'll take mine in Sea Green please. 


I hope you have some fancy occasions coming up, and I hope you wear something epic, and a gorgeous handknit shawl on top. 

How will you wear Farro
