Just because Old Man Winter pummeled the east coast with a blanket of white last week doesn’t mean you have to give in to looking frumpy to keep warm. In fact, this is an exciting time! Dig deep into your closet, pull out all of your coziest clothes and use them to your fashion advantage.
Functional and fashionable
Turtlenecks (and turtleneck sweaters) are especially hot right now (pun intended) and they’re so easy to wear. I have always been a big fan; there’s just something so effortlessly chic about them. The picture of Audrey Hepburn above is evidence of their timelessness.
Layer, layer, layer
An especially stylish way to wear a turtleneck is to layer it, which is nice when you have to go from indoors to outdoors and back again. You can just remove a layer as needed and put it back on before heading out into the frozen tundra.
Two important tips
- You MUST wear a good bra.
- Wear your hair up in a sock bun or pony tail. It elongates your neck even more and makes the entire look super sleek, no matter how casual.
