Knit the Look: Elin Kling’s spring shell

Knit the Look: Elin Kling's spring shell

Although it troubles me that people wear jeans to Fashion Week these days, I am in love with this outfit of Elin Kling’s — a classic, gossamer, ivory shell paired with funky jeans and black stilettos. Simple perfection, and a great way to get to wear a sweater in spring or fall. When I saw it, the first sweater pattern that sprang to mind was Evening Calm, from the current issue of Amirisu, because I am more than a little obsessed with it. It’s a bit more textured than Elin’s sweater, with the central cables, but would look phenomenal worn this way. Instead of pure wool, though, I might suggest knitting it in a wool-cotton blend, such as the amazing Bomuld og Uld from Geilsk, in natural.

  1. I’m not a fan of ‘short’ over washed/worn jeans look either. I have “nice” jeans that I only wear for occasions when I want to mix casual with a nicer event. Jewelry helps too. I have silver super heels…I will try not to kill myself when I try to wear them with my nice jeans. And yes, a pretty knit shell would be nice!

  2. I love the muted tones and the stitch pattern in “Evening Calm”. I’d prefer it with sleeves though. Thanks for sharing!
