The Winter Turtleneck: Look One
As I mentioned in my The Winter Turtleneck blog post, up until recently I was never a fan of sporting the much-loved winter staple: the turtleneck. I always struggled with ways to style a cozy turtleneck without being overheated in too many layers. It wasn't until this fall that I decided to indulge in the classic trend and learned the turtleneck is one of the most versatile wardrobe essentials for the fall/winter months! It's now become one of my favorite items of clothing to wear, layer and style and in my latest collaboration with KNDM Co. I am showcasing how to style the winter turtleneck in three different ways.
I scored my favorite turtleneck of the season from Nordstrom in a classic ivory color that goes with everything! I prefer a looser fit to my turtlenecks/sweaters because I find them to be more cozy and easier to layer/wear with a variety of outfits. In my first look, I wanted to focus on a more sporty/casual day look all while rocking some layers since it is getting chilly in Seattle. This look really plays up my love for accessories so to keep that in focus, I decided to pair my turtleneck sweater with a simple black pencil skirt from LOFT.
For accessorizing and making this outfit have a little pop, I paired my monochromatic top and skirt with a bold print scarf (I can't get enough of leopard I've realized). To play off the print in my scarf and to keep my look casual, I am wearing my brand new (and favorite) sneakers from Forever21. I love hightop style when it comes to athletic shoes and by pairing these shoes with my monochromatic outfit it brings a pop of color to my outfit all while keeping my look more on the sporty side. For additional accessorizing and practicality purposes, I paired my Target black crossbody with my outfit as I love the gold accent on the front of this purse that helps tie in the black skirt and browns/golds of my look.
