Why You Should Have Basic Turtlenecks in Every Color

October 25, 2016

A turtleneck is like a friend who is always there for you. Can’t beat that philosophy and, even if you are not a fan of turtlenecks, you need them in your life. Here’s why:

1. Turtlenecks fit every body type.

I’d think that the most flamboyant turtleneck is white, especially if you are bigger than a D Cup (I am somewhere between 3D and 4D, agh!). But if the Kardashians can wear it, so can the rest of us, as long as there is a good bra in the drawer. Try to go white on white, so chic!

These J.Crew tissue turtlenecks are $34 a piece,  and they come in every basic color as well as colors specific to the fall and winter season. This turtleneck in the color ‘spice’ is perfect for the fall season, year after year.

3. Turtlenecks add a layer to keep you warm during colder months.

You can wear it a la carte or  layer it under a jacket, or a vest, or a sweater, or a dress, or a button-down.

4. Turtlenecks are versatile.

I’ve owned this black turtleneck for more than five years and never got bored of it. It has  the ability to complement and morph with different looks depending what you pair it with. From classic to modern to casual chic to boho, black turtleneck is like an empty canvas that keeps me warm.

    I totally agree with all the points you noted here. I have small neck and had been skeptical to wear them before. But once I tried and I so love them to wear in Fall and Winter.

    I agree that turtlenecks are classic.

    I love the rust one you wore here paired with the green.
