How to Upgrade a Basic Turtleneck6:12 PM
We all have that plain old turtleneck top tossed in the back of our closets, right? We probably only wear it under our stylish clothes when it's freezing cold outside, or because our Lebanese moms forced us to wear it, you know the struggle.
In this post, I'll be showing you how to transform it from the plain jane of tops to a key piece in your wardrobe.
If you've been following me on Instagram, you'll know that I recently uploaded a video " 4 Ways to Style a Turtleneck" (BTW, go comment your favorite look to help me be on a TV show!!), so since most people voted for the second outfit, I decided to shoot it and share with you how I styled this turtle neck.
- Step 1: Pick a statement piece of clothing. It could be this vest, a blazer, a ruffled skirt or a summer dress ( like outfit #1 in the video ).
- Step 2: Accessorize. No, not using jewelry. I picked this vibrant and colorful scarf my mom had. You can choose a floppy hat for example.
- Step 3: Layer soft jewelry like these necklaces from Forever 21.
- Step 4: IF step 1 isn't a printed or bold piece, I say wear some statement shoes and a statement or bold bag. If your main piece in step 1 already has prints, I say stray away from the bold shoes and purse
