Growing up I always hated turtle necks. I thought they were so weird looking and uncomfortable and I never wanted to wear the ones my mom bought for me. I avoided wearing them at all up until 2012. Then I found this plain black one at Joe Fresh for $9 and I thought I'd give it a try....and you know what? I actually like it, samIam.

  1. That looks really good! I've always avoided turtlenecks too.

    The Green Eggs & Ham reference worked beautifully as it was just Dr. Seuss's birthday!

  2. You look great in this turtle neck. It lends some serious polish and seriousness to such a playful skirt. I love this outfit

  4. That turtleneck looks very chic on you! I don't think I've worn one since I was a kid, but maybe it's worth checking out again!

  6. I think you look cute! With some cropped black skinny pants you would look totally Audrey Hepburn-esq. I love that skirt though. You can never go wrong with pockets! :D

  8. I definitely found myself in the same situation recently. Hated them growing up, felt strangled, but then found a simple black one that I really like. Love yours with the glasses and red lips.

  9. Everyone I know hates turtle necks and I just don't get it. There is nothing more elegant and stylish than a chic black turtle neck. It's my winter staple with a pair of black cigarette pants (very Audrey Hepburn).

  11. I love the specks! And I like when turtlenecks are worn with hair up... looks very sophisticated! :)
