3 Ways To Wear A Turtleneck

Turtlenecks will never go out of style. In fact, now that fashion trends are taking a book out of the 70’s, turtlenecks are having a major moment. I, for one, am not in love with the 70’s trend. Yes I’m the one, but I am a lover of this sweater because of how practical it is and for its effortlessly chic style. Now that it’s February, a turtleneck is a very necessary item to wear, but you don’t want to get bored with it. Mix it up by tucking one into a midi skirt or layer it underneath a sleeveless dress. No matter how you style it, one thing is for sure, the turtleneck is incredibly comfy and cozy thing to wear. Whether you’re wearing a chunky turtleneck to stay warm or a sleeveless mock for a more sophisticated look, there are many different styles out there to try. Below are three different outfits to show you how to wear the turtleneck to stay warm this winter.

 

OVERSIZED

Really, who doesn’t love a chunky turtleneck? It’s basically a fashionable blanket with sleeves. Who wouldn’t want to wear that around all day? With this outfit, I paired the turtleneck with a mini skirt. You don’t want to wear an oversized sweater with wide legged pants. Instead, a mini skirt provides structure and balance.

SWEATER DRESS

I love wearing dresses and sometimes, during the cold months, they aren’t a very practical idea. However, thanks to this turtleneck style, you can wear a dress no matter how cold it is. Just make sure you pair it with tights so your legs stay nice and warm. Pair this turtleneck dress with a tote for the office or a clutch for happy hour. Either way, wear it with heels for a polished look.

TUCKED IN

Speaking of wide legged pants, they are a great complement to a turtleneck. The best way to pull off this style is to choose a lighter weight sweater and tuck it into these pants. Remember, a sleek turtleneck works best for layering. By tucking in a lightweight turtleneck, you can elongate your neck and arms, which will be very flattering to your figure. In addition to pants, you can also tuck a turtleneck into a midi skirt or under a sleeveless dress. But this outfit is probably my favorite.

Color Crush: Burgundy & Blush

I love burgundy and I love blush, so why not wear them together! In recent Color Crush posts, I have featured both of these colors as hues you should have in your wardrobe. Now I am here to show you how fabulous they are when worn together. Burgundy is rich and dramatic, whereas blush is light and romantic; this duo is match made in heaven. There are no rules when it comes to mastering this color combination. Just find your favorite styles and play around with them. You can push yourself a little further by incorporating navy, camel, or forest green. There are many ways to wear this look. I have put together two outfit combinations, one for day and the other for night. Whether you dress this look up or down, hopefully this post will get you in the right direction. So how do you plan on wearing blush and burgundy together? I’d like to hear what color combination is your favorite!

Weekend Style Guide

Lately, I have wanted to reintroduce my Weekend Style Guides.  When I first stared this blog, I released one every week.  The main reason was because I have always had trouble deciding what to wear over the weekends.  As a dress girl, I have no problem during the week when I am social at work and going out, but casual wear is another story.  How do you look stylish without being frumpy?  That has been an eternal struggle for me.  Thanks to this blog, I have finally found my weekend groove and, I want to share with you what inspires me when it comes to getting dressed on the weekends.  Right now, the weather is definitely influencing me.  It’s supposed to be warm but with rain, so what do you wear?   Well this post has the perfect solution for you.  When rain and heat are in the forecast, overalls are great for covering up and staying cool.  I, for one, love this style, and, even if you’re not a believer, hopefully this outfit will change your mind.  So what do you think?  Would you like to see more Weekend Style Guides?  I’d love to know what you’re go-to weekend attire is, so leave a comment below!

Chic Outfits for Thanksgiving Day

It is almost hard to believe that Thanksgiving is a week away.  I, for one, could not be more excited.  Not only is it my favorite holiday, but it kicks off a fabulous month of holiday festivities.  Before Christmas madness begins, it’s a wonderful day to be with family and friends while eating mass amounts of stuffing and pumpkin pie.  This year, I will be heading to Washington DC to spend time with my husband’s family.  It’ll be nice to get out of the city for a couple of days and recharge the batteries.  As much as I enjoy being a guest, I look forward to the day when I get to be the hostess.  What about you; how will you be celebrating this year?

No matter what your plans are, you will need a warm, cozy, and stylish outfit to wear.  A lot of you may take the casual approach to the day.  After all, you may be cooking all day, playing football outside, or napping from a turkey coma.   I happen to love dressing up no matter what the vibe may be.  If you can’t wear a nice dress on a day of celebration then when can you?  I am sure you all have your preference for dressing up or down, which is why I have put together a few chic outfits that will be perfect for Thanksgiving Day.
