From v-neck to cowl neck, the neckline is always a defining feature of a top. A neckline has the power to take a piece from elegant to sultry in a matter of seconds. New York fashion week fall 2015 showcased one particular neckline above the rest: the turtleneck. The turtleneck has come a long way in our lifetime. From it being grandma’s winter staple to being showcased on modern runways.This new, but old style allows for a distinguished and trendy look while also paying tribute to ’70s fashion.
This Fashionista paid her own tribute to the turtleneck sweater with a modern twist. She pairs a marble knit sweater with leggings and adidas kicks. The sneakers and argyle calf socks give a cool personal touch to the Fashionista’s overall look. Her addition of a faux leather jacket gives the otherwise cozy look some punch with the mixing of textures. The jacket also gives definition to the waistline helping to avoid a sunken sweater look. If leather isn’t your thing, a nice alternative is the bomber jacket. A bomber jacket will keep your look fresh, while also tying it nicely with the adidas sneakers. This outfit is versatile in that it’s comfy for fall and works for winter with some extra outerwear.
So during this holiday season, be jolly and bust out a turtleneck. It’s perfectly seasonal and a nice look for any holiday party. Plus, you might even get the chance to be twinning with grandma!
How To: Turtlenecks are a breeze to style! For a no-fuss look, pair an oversized turtleneck sweater with some leggings, as the Fashionista did above. Or for extra style points: pair a long sleeved turtleneck underneath a simple dress and add some heeled booties to embellish the look.
