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: Blush

In the summertime, I always gravitate to lightweight, pale-colored clothing.   This season is no different because I have a serious crush on blush. It is a perfect color for summer, even though I wear it all-year round, because it is a soft, light, and feminine color. When it is super hot outside, you don’t want to be in a dark color, and blush is a great way to cool things down. It has been a very popular color for the past couple of seasons and it is not losing steam anytime soon. With most pink hues, you run the risk of looking too Elle Woods or like a bottle of Pepto Bismol. However, blush is such a subtle version of pink that you can’t go wrong with either wearing it as an accent or the star. When styling your favorite blush pieces, keep in mind that it works well paired with navy, white, nude, or grey. If you love blush but don’t want to look too girly, try pairing it with a darker hue like navy or brown; it really changes the look. My last color crush was all about wearing white head-to-toe. I know that some of my readers didn’t like the idea of it, so wearing an all blush ensemble is a great compromise. If I can’t convince you, maybe these fabulous styles can? In this roundup, I have selected a few items that have been on my wish list for a while now. That’s no surprise though; I am currently very attracted to this color and believe that it should be on your top of your list for summer fashion must-haves!

Color Crush: Summer White

Now that Memorial Day has come and gone, it is time to embrace summer whites like a champ.  Whether you wear white all year or not, now is the time for the color to shine!  There is nothing more classic than a crisp all-white outfit on a hot summer day.  Some may call it a trend, but it’s more of a staple and a necessity in the warm summer months.  Now, there are some negatives to wearing white head-to-toe.  It can get dirty but, as long as you keep to a reasonable budget and take care of the pieces, it will be well worth the risks.  If you aren’t ready to wear all white, try a pop of color like navy, coral, nude, or any neon.   I am definitely crushing over this color for summer and think you should get on board too.  In case you need a little push in the right direction, I’ve put together a few of my favorite styles that will be a great fit to your wardrobe.

Color Crash Course: Red & Pink

February is the month of love.  With Valentine’s Day approaching, I can’t help but be inspired by it.  Today’s style guide is made for those skeptical few who still hold onto fashion dos and don’ts.  Forget all you have ever heard about not wearing red and pink together; in reality they are the perfect pair.  The key is to keep the red true instead of a shade of maroon or berry.  Once you have your red piece, add any shade of pink from blush to fuchsia.  I don’t know why these colors have gotten such a bad rap because, when styled appropriately, they can make up the perfect modern and colorful outfit.  I’m not saying you should wear this on the 14th, but when you are comfortable making this big statement.  Check out these three outfits and find which one inspires you to rock this style.  Rules were meant to be broken and, since fashion is all about self-expression. There shouldn’t be rules to begin with!

Style Guide: Winter Layers

Baby it’s cold outside!  During these winter months, it can be difficult to put a stylish outfit together.  All we want is to be warm, and one way you can achieve that is with layers.  Wear a blouse underneath your chunky or cropped sweater to keep you warm without adding too much bulk.  Another tip is to play with color.  As much as I love all-black outfits, color will help brighten you mood when the gray days start to get to you.  Today’s style guide offers all of these things and more.  Try this these teal wool pants and plaid sweater and have fun playing around with colors and patterns.  Instead of wearing the same old black coat, try this heather grey hue for a lighter look.  Turn winter into your favorite fashion season by playing around with layers, colors, and prints.  You can start with this style guide!

In Limbo Style

In the past, my summer wardrobe has been pretty simple. I am often drawn more to fall fashion.  When the heat gets too much for me, it’s rare to see me in anything other than a shift dress and flats.  This season, I have stepped out of my comfort zone and embraced a new combo: sweater and shorts.  I have found it difficult in the past to wear shorts and not feel sloppy.  But now that I’ve paired them with lightweight sweaters, I’ve been more confident sporting this summer staple.  You may be thinking that you’re done with your summer shopping.  The stores you love are clearing out their summer collections, so isn’t it time to think about your fall wardrobe?  That’s the great thing about this new style obsession of mine.   We are beginning to transition between summer and fall and, once shorts are a thing of the past, you can switch them out for a cute pair of jeans.  Even if you don’t think it’s possible to make this style dressy, a pair of pumps and flashy jewelry will change your mind.  I have put together two fabulous outfits that show how to effortlessly dress up and down your shorts and sweaters.  Enjoy and share with us in the comments below what were your favorite outfits this summer!

Currently Coveting

The problem with blogging is I am always thinking ahead and, as we are past the Fourth of July, I feel summer is slipping through my fingers.   I, for one, am determined slow down and really enjoy the months ahead.  Whether it is sitting outside for dinner, reading on a blanket in the park, or forgoing the subway for a walk home, I am loving this summer and plan to make the most out of it!  After all, fall will be here before we know it and the boots and layers will come out of storage.   But don’t panic; we’re not quite there yet!  Instead of sticking to my usual all black or nude ensemble, I have made it a mission of mine, to embrace this season’s vibrant hues and prints into my wardrobe, beauty, and home.  The following is what I am currently coveting this July that will bring this season a whole new lease on life!
