THE TURTLE NECK

Tuesday, 29 April 2014

The turtle neck, also known as the roll neck, polo neck or skivvy, has certainly made a comeback this season and I absolutely love it! As soon as I laid my eyes on a beautiful Celine turtleneck on one of my many social media news feeds, I knew that I simply just had to have one.

Unfortunately, that very Celine was out of my financial reach, however Witchery was able to fulfil my desire, with their absolutely gorgeous, super warm and un-itchy turtle neck from their recent Autumn/Winter collection.



For those that aren't quite familiar, a turtle neck is usually a sweater garment that features a close-fitting, round and high collar that folds over and covers the neck (and keeps you exceptionally warm). 

For me, living in cold and very wintery Canberra, purchasing a turtle neck knit was a no brainer. This week I have paired mine with my all time favourite leather skirt, and knee high boots as I wanted to achieve a look of casual chic- constructing a trans-seasonal outfit that is perfect for Autumn wear. What I love about both this outfit and this season is that it is still warm enough to let your pins out to reap in the last of the sunshine! 



Turtle necks have previously received quite a nerdy connotation, but what I simple adore about this Witchery knitted sweater is that it is both relaxed and comfortable, meaning that it won't make anyone look like a member of the Wiggles! 




So. Ladies, and Gentlemen, if you dare; purchase yourself a beautiful turtle neck, rolled neck or polo neck sweater knit for Autumn/Winter wear. I highly recommend my one from Witchery- it is the perfect piece to add to your wardrobe!

Make sure you keep cosy, warm and super fashionable this season!
