The Iconic Turtle Neck

Hello everyone!

How are you doing? Winter is officially here and it’s absolutely freezing here in London. And what’s my winter essential you ask? Turtle Neck Sweaters (particularly the oversized ones). They are my life saviours for winter. They cover me up, and are SUPER warm. Also, since it’s so oversized, you can wear like…10 more layers inside and it won’t even show!

Today, I’m going to show you 2 ways to style your turtle neck sweaters. It’s super simple too! This is a post dedicated to those who suffer from the cold (MEEEE)!

The Basic Way

Okay, honestly, this is one of the most basic outfits I’ve ever posted. But hey, it’s still chic okay? And to be totally honest, this is what I wear the majority of the time in London.

This is one simple way for you guys to style your turtle necks. Just wear it with a pair of high waisted jeans and an oversized coat! For shoes, you can alternate with either trainers or boots – depends on what sorta style you’re going for. In this outfit (and the second one too), I decided to wear a pair of white sneakers that I bought years ago!

The Cuter Way

This is also another simple outfit – but hey, it’s pretty damn cute! I don’t know if it’s just me but my legs don’t get as cold as my upper body. So I usually wear skirts and it’s totally fine – as long as I’m wrapped up on top. Plus, the skirt I’m wearing is actually super warm as well since it’s a knitted skirt. I actually got the skirt ages ago from YesStyle and it actually came with a sweater. So I decided to wear it and mix and match with the cream turtle neck since I lost the matching sweater. I also added an oversized scarf from Acne Studios, it makes the outfit a little bit more interesting. Plus, it keeps you super warm and it’s perfect for the winter weather!

That’s it folks! I hope you guys enjoyed this little winter-essential post.

I’ll be posting more shortly! But for now, BRB, I’ll be working on my assignments which are DUE IN LESS THAN 3 WEEKS. I’m sorta freaking out.
