ALL IN THE DETAILS: Trendy In Turtlenecks

We all had that one (or 10) ugly turtleneck sweater that we were forced to wear as a child; it looked frumpy and made our necks very itchy. After several years of refusing to wear an article of clothing that left me looking and feeling uncomfortable, my opinion has completely changed. Appearing in several runway collections, most notably Balenciaga and Barbara Bui, turtlenecks are making a comeback and in a good way. Turtlenecks come in a variety of styles and colors that can be worn for many different occasions.

This Fashionista wears an oversized turtleneck sweater and adds a pop of color with her mustard yellow jeans. Since the knit sweater has ribbed trim details, she keeps her accessories to a minimum with a black beanie and finishes the look with black riding boots and deep red lipstick. Her look is perfect for the rapidly dropping temperatures while still bold enough show off her impeccable style!

There are so many different options when it comes to styling a turtleneck! Try an oversized turtleneck sweater with leggings for class or a fitted cotton turtleneck with a leather jacket for a night out. But wait—your options don’t end here! Try a turtleneck sweater dress to wear on a winter date night or a mock turtleneck crop top for a concert.

How To: Have an old turtleneck sweater laying in the bottom of your closet that you don’t know how to style? Pair the top with leggings for a casual look or with jeans and heeled booties for a night out. Don’t forget to add color to show off your personal style.
