I acquired this lovely crochet-knit a couple weeks ago. Clearly handmade I immediately grabbed it, though it was on the rack in the coat section I had a premonition of how this outfit would play out; I wanted to wear it as a skirt and a capelet.
I was twirling around in this skirt more than a few times before I actually headed out for the day, which had me reminiscent of fun clothes of my childhood. Knits can really be a true fashion friend, lending its beauty in versatility, less restrictive qualities than woven garments, and even give body outlining "hugs of love."
For example, haven't you ever slipped into a form fitting garment, or that so-called body-con dress, one that fits like a glove and hugs all the right places... Perhaps you may possess a cardigan or skirt that's roomy and comfortable, yet that knit of choice also gives you the feeling of a genuinely cozy hug.
The material of a soft hand, unique gauge, or dramatic detailing catches your eye, and when you find that special knit there's a stylish bond that occurs. It may very well be a transitory relationship or one that makes a repetitive cameo appearance in your lifestyle closet. Whatever impression a favourite knit gives you, I hope that it makes you feel as good as this one has made me.
Painting with my autumn style!
