Lately I've been finding the garments in Vogue Knitting to be over styled. The white dress above is a perfect example. I had to read the caption details to figure out what I was seeing.The knitting is often obscured by layers of clothing, heavy jewellery or other overwhelming accessories. If you go to the website they do show other views as well as unadorned shots so that you can see the garment. However, when I pay for a magazine I don't expect to have to go elsewhere to figure out what I'm seeing.
I looked at Knitter's for comparison and they choose to style in an absolutely minimal way. Many of the shots are of models with no jewellery and if they do have any it is often just a pair of earrings. I don't think I know any women who wear no jewellery at all. Wedding rings and watches at a minimum seem to be the norm.
Interweave Knits seems to be styled closest to the way I see real women dressing, except for one styling choice they make and that is the odd (to me a least) layering choices. What do you think? Do you have a styling preference. Do you think it makes a difference to which patterns you choose to knit?
