How To Wear a Turtleneck When You Don’t Like Turtlenecks

Sydne Style wears Michael Stars green turtleneck with jeansAs much as I’ve always loved the look of a turtleneck, for years I couldn’t wear them. I always felt too constricted and would find myself tugging at my neckline, counting down the minutes till I could change. But because I thought the look was so chic, I slowly started training myself to deal with having fabric covering my neck. I still don’t like anything super tight, which is why I’m loving the looser styles available this season. For those who can’t deal with it all, I suggest a cowl-neck. For those who are easing into the trend, I suggest a looser knit fabric, like this olive turtleneck that allows for some breathing room.

I went for a holiday green look by layering a printed jacket over my turtleneck. It’s such an easy way to dress up denim for season, especially when you add a pair of pumps. My jacket is actually already on sale for Black Friday. Tune back tomorrow for more sales of the season and subscribe into my YouTube channel for more ways to wear the turtleneck trend, coming up soon on the Trend Guide!

    You look so beautiful! I can’t wait to see your video. Turtlenecks make me hot too — I have so much thick hair. But, cowl neck sweaters would be a great choice too!
