Turtlenecks for the 50’s, 60’s, & 70’s: Under a Poncho
Quote of the day: “Who is the happier man, he who has braved the storm of life and lived or he who has stayed securely on shore and merely existed?” Hunter S. Thompson
As the colder months approach, most of us will reach for clothing items that provide more coverage and warmth. The turtleneck fits the bill perfectly. Last winter, the three of us styled these same type of pieces of clothing here. This time, we each picked a different turtleneck to showcase (funny how Nancy & mom both chose a goldish/yellow color). Since the ponchos are quite prevalent in the stores now, I started this series with them in mind. Considering many ponchos can end up covering most of the top half of your body, your turtleneck tends to take a minor role in this dressing.
50’s Turtleneck: My cape started out as a sweater that I knitted. However it turned out wonky, so I redesigned it into a cape. That’s why the armholes are not in a perfect position. (My husband wonders if people even notice) But, at least I wear it now!!
