Twist Style Friday: Keystone

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.


 

 

Have you guys taken a close look at Keystone, the cardigan with lovely cabled details from our newest issue of Twist? You should.

A DK-weght sweater is a great transitional garment. For when the weather is uncertain, or if you're travelling, or maybe going to be someplace where the air is overly conditioned. Keystone is both elegant and snuggly, exactly what you want to reach for when you want to look put together, but you don't want to sacrifice an ounce of comfort.

I was thinking practical-pretty when I put these outfits together. Flat shoes, roomy purses, cute layers.

Throwback Thursday: Prosecco

Have you ever made a fabulous lacy shawl, and then kind of wished it was sweater? Prosecco might be the cardigan you have been dreaming of.

The subtle pattern on the body of the sweater is sweet and understated, and lets the dramatic edgings hang on to the spotlight.

I love the detail at the back; cinching the waist like this allows you to make Prosecco into a few different shapes, which means she can work with lots of body types as well as different outfits and moods!

Can you believe this stunner is from Winter 2010? Still fresh as a daisy.

I'll take one in lipstick red please.

Twist Style Friday: Viridis 2.0

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? 

Throwback Thursday: Andover

In my early twenties, I had a birthday party with a theme; folks were asked to come dressed as what they wanted to be when they grew up when they were little kids. My friend Krista - whose birthday I celebrated tonight - came as a Nobel laureate. Today, despite the hot sunny afternoon, there was a chill in the air on the walk home from our celebratory dinner, and I wished I could both wear and also give to her a version of this cardigan

 

 

Andover from the side

 

 

The waffley texture is perfectly cozy and a little bit rustic, but the shawl collar and elbow patches lend a kind of professorial flair.

For the classroom or the cottage, Andover can keep you warm and cool at the same time.

If you're thinking you might like to have one of these for yourself when the autumn comes, you should know that the yarn used in the original is on sale right now, and comes in a ton of great colors!
