Styling your favorite Turtleneck Sweater
Is a turtleneck really a sweater? I guess some would consider them as such. Styling your turtleneck can be as easy and simple as Mr.Steve Jobs or as cool as James Bond (any actor who played James Bond). With different names associated with the turtleneck like polo neck or roll neck, the turtleneck was made popular by athletes, sailors, artists, philosophers, naval officers, and intellectuals.
Similar to a sweater; turtlenecks are comfortable, they move with your body, and are flattering to your face and elongate your figure. If you’re a first timer and you’re looking for advice on purchasing your first turtleneck consider buying a dark color turtleneck navy, black, grey or even burgundy would be nice. Turtlenecks come in different styles, patterns, and fabrics; I would recommend a thin merino wool; nothing too bulky. Bulk sweaters or turtleneck comes with lots of warmth which could be uncomfortable. If you’re looking to up your game, consider buying a cashmere turtleneck, which doesn’t have to break the bank if you know where to look and when to shop for one. Buying anything cashmere can be a great investment, especially if you take care of it.
You can give off different vibes when wearing a turtleneck if not done correctly. Wearing your turtleneck like your grandfather isn’t acceptable unless you are a grandfather. But you want to look cool, on trend, age-appropriate, and fashionable. When styling your turtleneck for the winter, remember to stay true to yourself. Understand what you like and go for it. I paired my grey turtleneck with a sportcoat, trousers, Adidas Stan Smith, and an orange winter hat for a great weekend trip look.
