STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: In Your (Turtle)neck of the Woods

November 11th, 2015 at 2:10am

Fall is in full swing, which means jackets, scarves and sweaters are every Fashionista’s new best friends. I don’t know about you, but I always feel a bit more fabulous walking around my autumn leaf-scattered campus in my favorite fall sweaters; and this year, it’s all about the turtleneck. After having a major comeback this year, it’s easy to find turtlenecks in stores nationwide, which has led to some serious fall fashion! This Fashionista, in particular, caught my eye. She certainly knows how to style an awesome turtleneck sweater this season.

I love that her sweater on its own is very simple: a gray color scheme and light knit material make it an ideal fall wardrobe basic. Styled like so, it becomes a gorgeous statement piece! On such a windy day, it was only a given that a jacket would be involved in this Fashionista’s look. So, going with the neutral gray color scheme in her turtleneck, she donned a jacket in a more colorful neutral: army green! The green hue of her jacket, along with the gold accents, pairs nicely with the shade of her sweater and adds a subtle hint of color to her look. Plus, the drawstring feature on the jacket helps define her waist, which is mostly covered by the turtleneck. This detail adds a hint of sophistication as well as being totally figure-flattering.

Next, a pair of cute black leggings provides a more casual feel to the look. Leggings are practically a staple in any Fashionista’s wardrobe, and pairing them with this trendy turtleneck-and-jacket combo is perfect for fall’s cool breeze! Finally, this Fashionista pulls everything together with a pair of white sneakers. The white draws from the hues in her turtleneck, and continues the casual vibe of her leggings. They also pair nicely with the jacket; the contrast between sophisticated and laid-back draws attention to the look and gives it a cool hint of street style!

Bring turtlenecks back into your wardrobe this fall!
