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!

    This post is so relatable! My mom dressed me in turtlenecks all the time during winter season as a child. It was a turtleneck with jeans, skirts, jumpers, and even dresses! I still have the school photos to prove it!
