One article of clothing I swore I would never ever wear again as a young girl? Turtlenecks. My mother always had me in them, y’all. I can picture it now… a white turtleneck, non-flare Levi jeans, and white ked sneakers.
Needless to say, the look did not compete with all of the other Limited Too ensembles I was surrounded by. I decided that when the day came that I could choose my own clothes, turtlenecks were getting the boot.
Don’t you just have to laugh? It’s so funny thinking back on my fashion sensibilities when I was younger, especially since now the classic turtleneck is something I reach for regularly when temperatures turn chilly. There’s something elegant, timeless and easy about the silhouette. Perhaps my mother did know best after all! :)
Today, I’m so excited to be partnering with Modcloth in showing how I incorporate this style into my wardrobe all these years later! This classic black turtleneck is a must-have for the fall and winter. It works as an incredible base for layered autumn looks, or as a stand-alone statement. I love the preppy look it creates when paired with this high-waisted plaid skirt!
A few more ideas for styling turtlenecks? Use it as a base for styling your favorite blanket scarves, layer it with a fabulous cape, or wear it chic and standalone with a pair of black jeans, pearl earrings and ballet flats. The options are endless!
Love from Texas,
Thank you, Modcloth, for sponsoring this post!
