STYLE GURU STYLE: Turtlenecks Are Back

Allow me to reintroduce a returning trend: the turtleneck. Turtlenecks are a classic wardrobe staple, which can be worn with so many awesome looks. You can dress it up with a skirt and shoe booties, or you can dress it down with some boyfriend jeans and sneakers. The high-collar shirts hug your neck to keep you warm and also allow you to stay trendy in your personal look.

Different variations of the turtleneck were featured in Christian Dior’s fall 2015 ready-to-wear collection. They are seen paired with skirts, blazers and ankle boots. The collection showed fashionable and chic ways to wear the turtleneck. There are different patterns and colors, which can be worn for certain occasions. The collection really stood out to me because it included mostly skirts and dresses, which my closet is filled with.

The best thing about the turtleneck is that it can be worn in so many different ways depending on the occasion. I personally like to wear solid turtlenecks with patterned skirts because it is a clean and classy look. You can pair the outfit with boots, heels or shoe booties. It is perfect for an indoor winter look!

I decided to pair a plain, black turtleneck with a patched short skirt. The skirt added a touch of color to a perfect evening outfit. Adding that little pop of color can really make a statement in an outfit. Since most of my wardrobe contains the color black, I really like to branch out and add some color even if it’s in an accessory, such as a necklace or a bag. All in all, turtlenecks can be worn as fitted shirts, loose shirts or even sweaters. It is the perfect look for the upcoming chilly months.
