The Turtleneck Trend
Turtlenecks are where function meets fashion this winter season. Yes, turtlenecks may seem awkward and nerdy. Images of Steve Jobs in his signature black turtleneck are probably flashing in your brain right now, but leave it to fashionable girls to make this historically frumpy shirt one of the year’s biggest trends.
From the runway to high street to fashion blogs, these daring girls have conquered the impossible—envy worthy turtlenecks. Next up: dad jeans with tennis shoes!
Let’s not get ahead of ourselves.
How to wear them:
Because they are such a difficult item, turtlenecks can go from fashion-forward to “dressed in the dark” really quickly. Be careful! Here are some tips that will save you from looking dowdy:
The safest way to wear one is choosing a solid color like black or maroon, and pairing it with a pair of high-waisted jeans or a long pleated skirt. See how these fashionable girls wear them.
Women have also been putting statement necklaces over their turtlenecks. This is tricky, but can be done if the rest of your outfit is monochrome. This is a cozy yet eye-catching look, perfect for a dinner party or date night. Selena Gomez and Natasha Bedingfield recently rocked the combo.
Turtlenecks were a hot item at New York Fashion Week. Wear one under a shift dress to take a summer look into the cold months. You can also wear one over a dress for added warmth and style. Try belting it to enhance your figure.
