Another old trend seeing a resurgence on the fall 2015 runways is the turtleneck. While I don’t think the turtleneck ever officially went away, it’s definitely seeing a lot more play this season. And for good reason – not only are they comfortable, turtlenecks can be paired with everything in your wardrobe making them an easy addition to your closet.
Turtlenecks are a great option when the weather starts to turn cold since the high neckline makes it easy to stay warm without having to break out heavy winter scarves. Many turtlenecks are made from a thinner knit as well, so they can be layered under short sleeve dresses, cardigans, and blazers. And when the season finally becomes winter, you can wear a chunky knit turtleneck to stay warm and cozy in any situation.
The turtleneck is a classic piece that evokes French New Wave fashion from the 60s. While it covers up more than other necklines, it also has a sleek fit that adds a hint of sexiness. Whether you want to evoke your inner poet or stay on trend this season, here are some top picks to get your turtleneck obsession started:
Gestuz Gaby Turtleneck Jumper
If a too-high collar makes you feel uncomfortable, this turtleneck has a shorter collar to give you the look without the tight fit. Dress it down with leather leggings or pair it with a pencil skirt for the office.
A-Line Dress In Check With Turtleneck
Turtleneck dresses are one of my favourite wardrobe staples. The high collar and short hemline strikes the perfect balance between sweet and sexy.
