From jean jackets to blazers and statement necklaces to well, just about anything—layering your turtleneck is the perfect fall staple. They made their debut into my closet (also my heart) and on almost every single NYFW runway this fall, where Alexander Wang taught us that turtlenecks are in and bare necks are out. Here’s my take on 3 different outfits in the same turtleneck—afternoon, evening and night options. All you have to do is add your choice of accessory and voilà—there you have it: The Evolution of the Turtleneck.
Afternoons with little effort and lots of coffee (one just ain’t cuttin’ it.) For a simple yet chic look, throw on your favorite jean jacket or in my case denim button up to complete your outfit—easy, peasy. If you want to get fancy, slip on a little pump and tuck in the bottom of your button up.
Nothing completes a turtleneck more eloquently than a statement necklace. Still waiting to showcase that beautiful necklace your mother got you for your birthday? Say no more because this evening is your chance to accessorize. Timeless and elegant, prepare to be flattered (maybe even proposed to)—who knows.
It’s peanut butter blazer time AKA dinner time so go ahead and pass the chips, please. A blazer is the perfect go-to for a night out with that special someone (in my case, my mother) or a weekend stroll in the city with your girlfriends.
