How I Style: Turtlenecks + Mocknecks

If you asked high schooler me about turtlenecks, I would tell you I hated them. They were the clothing piece my mom would try to make me wear in the wintertime to keep me warm.

Boy, things have changed. This autumn/winter, I have a slight obsession with turtlenecks and mocknecks. Not only are they a super versatile piece to style, they keep you toasty and warm.

Here’s a couple of my favourite ways to style them:

  1. Simplest way— by themselves! This is my favourite way to wear the chunkier knits. You can leave them as they are, tuck the front in, or add a coat/scarf if it’s chillier out.  Just pull on some jeans, put on some booties, and you’re out the door!

2. For a slightly dressier look, pair a turtle neck with a midi skirt. I kept it casual by just slipping on some white sneakers, but you can definitely dress it up with some booties. To add a pop of colour, I went for a wine red bag instead of my usual black.

3. With the same turtleneck, I paired it with a denim button up skirt. I know what you’re thinking— it’s way too chilly out now to be having your bare legs exposed to the air. Okay, you’re right. I’d definitely pair this with some tights in this weather, but I was literally sweating from taking off/putting on different outfits, so I decided to skip the tights here.

4. Leeet’s be honest here, we all have those days when we just want to wear all black. Here, I decided to make the outfit slightly less… intimidating (for the lack of a better word :P) by layering a furry vest over it.
