Three ways to wear a turtleneck

I remember a definite (probably teenage) phase in my life when I thought the idea of wearing a turtleneck a total absurdity. Turtlenecks fell in the same category of “over my dead body” items as giant plastic hoop earrings and crocs. And yet, and yet… Here I am doing a post on how to style a (beautiful, camel, merino wool) turtle neck three ways. Because versatility is great for sustainability. And because you should never say never. Also – I’m not going to lie, I’ve been sat on this post for a while, but I’m sure the pictures are seasonal somewhere in the world!
For work, I tuck the jumper into a sensible-lengthed (if not sensible-materialed) leather skirt, or a pair of high-waisted trousers, and throw a blazer over the top for extra sass (formality?) when needed.
2/Casual wear
Pairing the jumper with some kicks allows you to seriously maximise on being snuggled up in merino wool up to your chin. These loose-fit office pants add to the comfort vibe, believe it or not.
3/Fun wear
If you thought a bin bag-sized turtleneck couldn’t be sexy, you were right. But stick a slinky slip dress underneath and pair it with some knee-high boots and you’re halfway there. And halfway to sexy is all you ever really want to be, you know, to keep the sleezy ones at a distance.
I hope you enjoyed the first instalment of this “3 ways” (not threeways) series, where I share three ways to style an item of clothing for three different occasions – coz, you know, versatility is key.
