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!! It’s been full on sweater weather here lately (and leather weather, velvet weather, sweater-tights weather… all the best kinds of weather) and I have been so happy to be pulling out my handknits and boots. I don’t even mind the bit of rain.
Fall happens fast, so I’m doing my best to relish these days; walking home from work and eating my lunch outside. I want to breathe all the air while it doesn’t hurt my lungs. It makes me want to listen to fiddle tunes and darn socks and stay up too late so I don’t miss it.
Cahoots is the perfect cardigan for this time of year. She’s cute and shaped enough to look adorable with whatever outfit you have on, but she is also thick and cozy enough to hold off jacket-wearing until the mercury falls just a little bit further.
Snuggly and sweet, right? You could totally wear this over jeans and a t shirt, and the neckline is high enough to work with a collared shirt as well, so you could blazer it too. In this color though, with those bright buttons, Cahoots was calling to me. She said, "make me pretty!"
One of the best ways of keeping a pretty dress and sweet cardigan from looking overly twee is to butch it up a little with your shoe choice. A little gender-blending can add an edge to an outfit that’s otherwise potentially toothache causing. So pick yourself a nice brogue, or a chelsea boot to go with your frock, and get outside where the leaves are falling!
How will you wear Cahoots?
