One Black Turtleneck, Three Ways To Wear It

I’ve always thought of turtlenecks as being one of the more … oppressive articles of clothing. In addition to having a fabric chokehold around your neck, turtlenecks cover so much skin that they’ve always struck me as being totally boring. Plus, I grew up on Southern California, where denim shorts with Ugg boots is more typical of winter fashion. So yeah, for the better part of my life, I could give a shit about turtlenecks — but then I moved to the East Coast and had to start dressing for actual real cold winters, and my outlook shifted the more my teeth chattered. And as for being boring? Hardly. Turtlenecks are actually an amazing layering piece for when you want to be especially warm, and they help “winterize” certain pieces in your wardrobe that you maybe thought you could only wear during summer. So, in short, turtlenecks are remarkably versatile snuggly straight jackets and you should totally get one. Like the one above from J. Crew!  Once you do, here are three outfits to inspire you!
