01 Jun Summer to Winter with the Turtleneck
Adding instant elegance to any outfit, the turtleneck is essential to one’s winter wardrobe and in this post I am going to show you how some of your favourite clothing items can go from Summer to Winter with the Turtleneck.
An old school classic that goes in and out of fashion so often that it can’t be considered in the realm of what’s fashionable and what’s not anymore, because it’s a wardrobe staple… like denim jeans, crisp white shirts and little black dresses.
From Steve Jobs, to former Black Panther member Kathleen Neal in a white turtleneck, to Diane Keaton who seems to be able to wear a turtleneck all year round, the turtleneck evokes a type of fashion seriousness. Covering the neckline and subsequently the chest area (unless you are Kim Kardashian in a sheer turtleneck) there is absolutely nothing sexy or frivolous about the turtleneck. Even in its cropped and sleeveless format, that covered neckline will somehow (unless it is sheer) add some silent sophistication to your look. Perhaps it’s the lack of exposure around the chest area, who knows? But this versatile garment (love it or hate it) is a tried and tested classic, that is practical, versatile and a total “thing” right now thanks to Drake’s “Hotline Bling” and the fall/winter 2015 collections at New York Fashion Week.
