I tried out another experiment with a black turtleneck this time. I chose it because I've had such a difficult time styling it before, which is why I've only worn it five times. So at first I was kinda bummed about this experiment but then I got really into it with all these ideas!! I think I could've gotten a couple more outfits out of it but then I wouldn't have any posts. I know - my life is hard.
sample sale necklace, $5; Gap turtleneck, $19 (similar); Gap Outlet boyfriend jeans, $26 (similar); vintage bag, $5 (similar); JCPenney heels (similar)
For this outfit, I kept it casual with boyfriend jeans but dressed it up with a bauble necklace and colorful heels. This would be good for a lunch date or a casual office dress code (like mine!). Switch your shoes for colorful flats for a play date or school.
This outfit features my $1 pants I got at the sample sale too! They were really long so I hemmed them to be cropped pants. They have a weird drop-crotch to them but they were a $1 and they're super comfy I can sleep in them! I wouldn't be surprised if they are actually pajama bottoms. Oh, and they have pockets. Double score!
This is another spin on the dressy casual similar to the first outfit. The top half says 'I mean business' and the bottom half says 'but not really.' Since this was such a comfy cozy outfit, I'd wear this again for anything. Just swap the shoes depending on the event: flats for running a quick errand, chunky platform sandals for a slightly dressy casual look, or bright colorful heels for a dressier look.
Which look is your favorite? And how else would you wear a black turtleneck?
