50′ 60’s 70’s
Turtlenecks for the 50’s, 60’s, 70’s: Under a Shirt
Quote of the day: “Thinking is easy, acting is difficult, and to put one’s thoughts into action is the most difficult thing in the world.” Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
I’m sure everyone of you has a couple turtlenecks (or a dozen) in your closet. Now I’m not talking about the thin cotton ones with the small decorations all over them–those should get relegated to the basement for now! I’m thinking about that nice, lightweight turtleneck with a good looking collar. These are a perfect layering pieces for the colder weather months! I’m sure everyone has, at one time or another, layered a turtleneck under a sweater or cardigan! But in this series of blogs, I’ll show 3 different ways to dress up that pullover! Today’s focus will be wearing the turtleneck under a shirt or blouse…one that maybe you think of wearing more in the warmer months! If you want to try this look, but aren’t sure it will work: start with a turtleneck that matches the shirt. Then it won’t be so obvious that they are two different tops!
50’s Turtleneck: I found this turtleneck on www.15each.co (guess how much? $15!) (see the video about 15each here). The turtleneck is perfect under this sleeveless top since it’s practically the same color. Typically this print top gets worn under jackets only and thus was under appreciated. Now here’s a way to showcase it without having to freeze my booty off!!

60’s Turtleneck: This blouse is quite lightweight, so it’s a perfect pairing for the turtleneck to winterize it! This pairing works well since all the colors are quite muted.
70’s Turtleneck: How about wearing that lovely turtleneck under a graphic t-shirt? This can be especially helpful if your t-shirt is not the best color for your complexion, but the turtleneck’s coloring works better for you. Then add an interesting necklace to look more modern and spiffy (all the younger girls are doing it!).
Thanks for visiting my styling blog!
