Turtlenecks 6 (Under a Blouse)

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

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

Quote of the day: “Being realistic is the most commonly traveled road to mediocrity.” Will Smith

For the final pairing in these 3 posts of the turtleneck, I went with outfits that include a blouse (my definition of a blouse has always been a shirt with a collar & buttons). We tried this styling last year (here) but with more of a shirt interpretation. I tried to vary our looks by having one blouse be buttoned, one blouse be open with accessories and the other blouse just left open (it almost looks like a jacket this way). Our same turtlenecks got mated with ponchos (here) and a dress (here).

50’s Turtleneck: My blouse is short sleeved, thus I layered a cardigan over it!

60’s Turtleneck: Check out these great bracelets from Mauzie’s–a wonderful jewelry and design shop here in Denver. They pull together the colors from the scarf perfectly.

70’s Turtleneck: Mom’s blouse almost looks like a jacket, but she told me she made it as a blouse, so I’ll take her word on it.

  • Very nice everyone! I love that two of you are wearing white for the winter!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Tara…I am a sucker for white all year long!

  • Some great layering here, especially yours Jodie. Just shows how versatile this item is.
    Your Mum’s printed blouse is so very eye-catching.


    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Jacqueline….i love the challenge of layering!!

  • Hi there Jodie! Here’s what I love about each of your stylings: the belted cardigan, the pearl bracelet and scarf compliment, and the open blouse. I need to try the first and last.

    Thank you for linking up to the Kremb de la Kremb Style Stories.

    Love, Ann from Kremb de la Kremb

      Thanks Ann!!!

  • Bernadette Laganella

    Three great looks and again the color combinations make everything unique. I like the idea of sleeveless turtlenecks so that I don’t have to deal with so much bulk.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks for reading Bernadette…I remember years ago when the sleeveless turtlenecks came out and I thought—how silly. Now I think—how smart! Funny how our perception changes!!

  • Nice layering! I’m starting to dip my toes into turtlenecks this year. I feel like they don’t do much to elongate my torso, so I tend to avoid them, however I also like the warm and cozy feeling of wearing them.

    Chic on the Cheap

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Hi Lydia—I will admit to being “over” turtlenecks for the longest time, but I am glad to start wearing them again–if only for the reality of keeping warm!

  • Another great Trio, Jodie.
    I love your layers, Nancy’s more casual vibe and your Mum looking so striking.
    All so different and each perfect for the wearer.

    P.S….Jumpsuits (casual, smart & dressy) for the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s…..I hope you make that happen someday (soon). My mind boggles at the possibilities for those posts!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Ooooh….I like that category of smart—I’m going to totally use it (and credit you, of course)! As for the jumpsuits….I can make that happen—it may be about 6 months down the road, because I know Nancy & I will need to buy one (mom probably has 10 hidden in her closet!!!)
