Turtlenecks 5 (Under a Dress)

Turtlenecks for women in their 50's, 60's, & 70's.

Turtlenecks for the 50’s, 60’s, & 70’s: Under a Dress

Quote of the day: “Beauty begins the moment you decide to be yourself.” Coco Chanel

Considering the turtleneck is a great piece that can keep us warm, then by all means let’s use it as a laying piece—We’ll put it with a dress this time. I started this series almost a year ago here with other options. Earlier this week was an opportunity to see these pieces with a poncho (here). As for this post, the layering works well with sleeveless dresses which allows more of the color to show instead of covering over the pieces almost entirely with a sweater.Notice my dress is long sleeved, but it’s awfully low cut by itself, so thus another problem solved. And we all donned our boots to keep from freezing our tuchas off!

50’s Turtleneck: Notice that I am purposely wearing the turtleneck backwards. There is this strange stain on the front that I need to work on removing.

60’s Turtleneck: Maybe the black boots are a little heavy for this ensemble? I might try Nancy’s brown boots next time.

  • I remember when as kids we’d think turtle necks as frumpy, but I like the idea of wearing them under the dress. That necklace goes well with yours!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Agy! I used to think that way too—but I now also need to be realistic about the weather!!

  • Happinessatmidlife

    I always love wearing tops under dresses to give it a different look and stretch your wardrobe across seasons. Love how you all wore your turtleneck sweater!

    Thank you for being a part of TBT Fashion link up and hope to see you soon!

      Thanks Alice!!

  • Audrey at Munofore

    I love turtlenecks this year and need to think more about layering them like this.Thanks for sharing on #FridayFrivolity, I hope you join us next week.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Audrey!

  • They look great with shift dresses, don’t they? Means you can wear the dresses in the depths of winter without shivering!

    Your necklace Jodie, is so pretty.


    • Jodie Filogomo

      Exactly!! I mean, there’s nothing wrong with being practical, eh?

  • Thanks for linking up to Top of the World Style. Each week I am really impressed how you style three decades under one theme. They all look amazing.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Nicole—I appreciate the kind words (even though some weeks turn out better than others…ha ha)

  • Dawn Lucy

    This trend reminds me of the 70’s and I love it! Super fun post, Dear!

    Thanks for sharing with FFF!

      Hey Dawn….might as well bring the 70’s back full force since we’re doing fringe & flares, right? Thanks for the love!

  • Those earrings are gorgeous! Does he sell them?? ;P Y’all look fantastic, and at first glance I wondered if the post was about boots because your boots all look so awesome… clearly great taste from top to bottom!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Sarah! No, the earrings were made many moons ago, and he’s doing other thing now!! Thanks for checking in and the nice compliments!!

  • Versatilestylebytracey

    Turtlenecks are a classic! I actually don’t wear them much at all subbing a lot of scarves to cover my decollete, but did buy one for this season. I have yet to wear it due to just a few cold days and then warming right back up again. I love them with the dresses, great job. I do think the black boots are a bit heavy with the light colors in the outfit. A simple fix could be to add a black necklace to help bookend the dark boots. Love your light colored boots.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Great idea about the black necklace with Nancy’s outfit…I was trying to add some color with the red necklace, but you’re right—black would’ve been better. I didn’t wear turtlenecks much in the last decade, but I don’t mind them now!! Thanks for checking in Tracey!!!

  • Yes, yes and yes!
    All three of you are rocking this 60’s inspired but totally on-trend (and practical) look.
    What is not to love?

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Samantha! It is very practical for those of us living where the temperatures are not always ideal!!

  • I would have never guessed that your turtleneck was on backwards! You are rockin’ that thrifted dress and boots, my friend!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Pretty soon, I’ll be as good as you at thrifting (wishful thinking). I rarely look at labels until I get home…

  • Lorena Lorena

    I love turtlenecks even though where I live its always warm, I have a few. Although lately I have been wanting to add more, but more slouchy ones, where i have more room.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      They are quite versatile—because I find even if it’s warm outside, inside temperatures can be questionable!!

  • Catherine Urbanski

    And don’t forget, turtlenecks hide turkey neck and save you a bundle on a neck lift!


    • Jodie Filogomo

      Ha ha Catherine….so true!!

  • OneDizzyBee

    Sweaters under dresses. What an awesome idea. I see so many cute sleeveless dresses but I hate my old lady arms so I pass them by. Now I see I don’t have to 🙂

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Tess!! I know how you feel…I just read an article on why there are so many sleeveless dresses (easier/cheaper to make)! Well…hah—we’ll show them!
