As a person who is ALWAYS cold, I have to keep a closet full of very thick clothing. It’s not enough for me to simply wear a light sweater and call it a day. I have to go a step further. When I shop for warm weather clothing, my goal is to find fabrics that generate heat. LOL! That’s why I’m in love with oversized turtlenecks these days. Not only do they pair well with just about anything from joggers to leather leggings, but they also keep the cold weather from biting you. When someone as cold natured as I am can go outside in 40 degree weather without a coat and still be warm enough…then you know you’re wearing a great sweater!
You can find oversized turtlenecks just about anywhere these days because they’re on trend right now. The one I’m wearing today is from Zara, but since I missed out on buying it there, I was able to find it on eBay. It was a great find too! It’s definitely one of my new favorites. Although it would go really well with a midi skirt, I decided to wear some distressed black jeans instead. My shoe of choice was a pair of mesh booties, but I could easily dress this look down with a cute pair of sneakers. Animal print always adds a great pop, so I’m carrying my favorite leopard print clutch to complete the outfit.
Here’s my look:

It’s crazy how two simple pieces can create such a chic look! Not only that, with a sweater this thick, you don’t even have to layer! Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy layering, but oversized turtlenecks like this don’t require anything else. The most you would need on a really cold day would be to wear a t-shirt underneath.
Do any of you have any oversized turtlenecks? If so, how do you style it?
Until next time…
