2 Simple and Chic Ways I Wore My Turtleneck

When it comes to my personal style, I’m pretty much a minimalist.  I don’t like to wear a lot of layers and I don’t like a lot of accessories either.  Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE to see how others layer their pieces and accessorized their jewelry, scarves, etc.  But for my own style I’m pretty simple.  To me, it doesn’t take a lot to look chic and stylish.  To be honest, I feel like less is more sometimes.  So to illustrate the “less is more” statement, I’m showing you two simple and chic ways I styled my black H&M turtleneck.

Let me start by telling you that this turtleneck was only $12 at H&M. It’s a jersey material so it’s pretty thin, but it’s perfect for fall; especially for those who do like to layer.  Also, I should mention that Pinterest is the “Holy Grail” of style inspiration because this look was totally inspired by a picture that I found while perusing my Pinterest boards here.

Anyway, I’m a sucker for a great pair of high waist jeans and I love the way my turtlenecks look with them.  So I pulled out my favorite Gap jeans for the first look.   And since I was so inspired by the simplicity of this look on Pinterest, I really wanted to keep my accessories to a minimum.

With that, I just added this cute little crossbody that I purchased from Marshalls and my very inexpensive faux leather booties from Forever 21.  I felt so chic and comfy in these pieces y’all.  This is my style at it’s most authentic!

This next look is also a great example of my personal style at its “realest”.  I styled my turtleneck with these plaid high waist shorts from Zara.  I knew I wanted to add plaid bottoms with my turtleneck but initially, I was thinking about wearing plaid pants.  Pnce I saw these shorts at Zara, I knew exactly what I wanted to do with them.  So, I got them and decided to add another fall staple with them, black opaque tights.  I mean, who doesn’t love tights; especially black ones.

And to finish off the look, I finally got the chance to pull out my black over-the-knee boots that I purchased last fall!  These boots are one of my favorite fall pieces and I can’t wait to start pairing them with everything in my closet!

I don’t know if you watch “Friends”, but the “Rachel Green” character played by Jennifer Aniston is my favorite character on the show.  Why?  Because she was the most stylish friend of them all!  Her style was always so chic and put together.  I particularly loved her turtleneck, shorts, and black tights combo.  So today, I am serving you my own brown version of “Rachel Green”!

That’s all folks!  What do you think of these two looks?  Do you love or hate turtlenecks?  I know some are not into them, but they really are a great classic piece to have in your closet for fall!  Let me know what you think in the comments below.

    Gosh, I love your look. Living in a hot and humid climate, turtle necks don’t work here, lol. I’d definitely stock up on them if we lived in cooler/colder weather cities though because I love them 😉

    I absolutely love turtlenecks. They are a permanent fixture in my Fall wardrobe. Also, that belt you’re wearing with the jeans is lovely! I’ve been on the lookout for a similar one..

    I always tuck my shirts into highwaisted jeans or skirts and my boyfriend teases me for dressing like “an old man”, but I think the look is hella cute!
