Winter can be one of the hardest seasons to dress for. Wearing stylish clothes is difficult when you have to keep freezing cold temperatures in mind. One piece of clothing that solves this problem this winter are turtlenecks. They are super cute, but practical by keeping you warm and cozy as well. Turtlenecks can be the focal point of your outfit, especially if they are oversized or chunky, but they can also be a great layering piece under vests or capes.

So many designers have embraced the turtleneck trend this season and this Fashionista is showing the popular cable knit variety. The deep red color is perfect for the season and is a great way to keep from wearing all black, which can be a tough habit in the winter. She paired her turtleneck with classic black jeans and black riding boots. Black jeans and boots are always a staple to any winter outfit. Adding a purse is a great way to add something fun to the outfit, and this Fashionista paired this cool metallic Kelly Wynne bag to her look. The black ties into her boots and complements the sweater, but the gold metallic sheen gives the outfit a special pop. No outfit is complete without earrings, and this Fashionista kept it simple with some pearly Kendra Scott earrings.

This outfit is perfect for going out and about during the day and can even be worn to a nice dinner at night. Turtlenecks are definitely the best of both worlds—fashionable, but comfortable.

One Simple Change: The great thing about this outfit is that it is perfect for a night out, but you can dress it down for brunch on the weekend with friends. Put on some jeans and add black flats and you’ll be good to go for a great meal.
