It’s timeless, classic, and well if it was good enough for Jackie O and Audrey Hepburn; it should be good enough for you. The turtleneck is a silhouette that is sorely mistaken to be hard to wear but the truth is, it isn’t. We for one absolutely love it and if you want to take the elegance of your ensemble up a notch then the turtleneck is exactly the item you need for that. Let us walk you through the different bottoms that compliment this piece better than a guy at midnight in a crowded bar.
Let’s face it. We live in a tropical country and no matter how many novenas you pray, it’s just not going to get cold enough. But, sometimes it’s nice to pretend. Wear a sleeveless turtle neck under a sweater dress for the illusion of thick layers without the worry of sweating bullets.
If you read our post last week about how to create the illusion of longer legs, the same tip goes into this one. Wearing high waisted pants elongate your legs and since you’re technically covering your neck, make sure that you look long and lean everywhere else.

This look is perfect for an easy day of errands or a lunch out with the girls. But, you can change the direction of this ensemble and make it look like you got plucked out of a 70’s vogue issue (or at least dream like you look like it) by tucking your sweater in and hiking that skirt up!
Take your turtleneck to the office and finally give that artic air conditioner a run for its money! We are in love with this look and will probably rush out of here once the clock strikes six to snatch these pieces.
Who doesn’t love a good pair of jeans? No one. That’s who. As much as it is sophisticated, the turtleneck can be worn with the most casual of items like our ever reliable pair of blue jeans. You can dress it up with a pair of pointed pumps or keep things simple with ballet flats.
Wearing a turtleneck tucked out with elephant pants just make us want to fly to New York city and walk around all day in the hopes of being photographed by Bill Cunningham. This look is not only sartorial but it also gives you the leeway for binging a little (or a lot) during dinner and no one will even notice.
