The Striped Turtle

A neck-defining number when the winter weather (or humdrum hour) strikes. A casual garb to frequent, without compromising chic. 

Hey Dappers!
Turtlenecks boasted a burrrrrrry (read: very) bold comeback this season, and I. AM. HERE. FOR. IT.  What was once considered borderline jazzy has now been resurrected as a breezy staple piece. Its neck-defining quirk retains a certain type of regal, with a pompous way of keeping our neck sleek and stout.

(Gotta love when the clothes do all the posture enhancements.) #HandsUpEmoji

My turtleneck is from Wallace and Barnes (old, found a similar sweater from Armani Exchange here). It’s super thick and needs no introduction. This tube-type construction gives any outfit the perfect touch of avant-garde without the need for accessory. A wonderful case of less is more, if you will.

Whenever I feel like making a statement -minus the effort- I simply reach for a turtleneck and, BAM, instant dapperness!

Have a great week, friends!
