Audrey Wore Turtlenecks

Hi Lovelies!

Recently I saw an article on WhoWhatWear that read, "Ways to Make Turtlenecks Look Cool." Frankly, I was taken-aback by this article. What do you mean, make turtlenecks look cool? In my opinion, turtlenecks are extremely cool! There's such a classic, cool sexiness about them. I never needed a recent photo of a turtleneck wearing, street scene fashionista to convince me that they are cool. After all, over the decades, the chicest, most well dressed women in history were advocates of this style. Who doesn't remember Audrey Hepburn in that classic scene from Funny Face when she states, "I rather feel like expressing myself now." What was she wearing? A black turtleneck with black skinnies and loafers. Audrey didn't just reserve them for just the movies, often times she was photographed wearing them. Cool I tell you...so cool! 

Today's outfit is dedicated to the classic, cool and ever-so chic turtleneck. I've decided to pair my favorite Anne Klein, short-sleeved turtleneck with a few classic pieces:

Skirt (Banana Republic), Boots (Migliorini of Italy, Backpack by Liz Claiborne -purchased over 20 years ago from the Broadway, Rose Gold Bracelet from Glitter Lifestyle Boutique.








 

Tell me Lovelies, do you find turtlenecks to be cool or uncool? Just in case you have never scene the famous Audrey Hepburn scene that I mentioned above, I'll leave you today with a treat, and let me know if Audrey looked uncool in her turtleneck. Enjoy {wink}

    I agree, there is nothing more chic and classic than a turtleneck, and the way you paired it is up to date perfection!

  12. That was fun watching. I never really realized that Audrey was also a very good dancer (shame on me). And yes turtlenecks are classic and the way you wear it in this outfit is utterly, totally cool. Very good outfit. All pieces.

    1. Greetje, I think I was meant to live in the 1950's. I am totally obsessed with the style of dress during that era, especially in Audrey, Princess Grace and Jackie O. So feminine and pulled together. I absolutely love turtlenecks! Thanks for the nice words :)

  16. I agree! They're completely cool. You look lovely in yours with your little skirt (and your great legs!) and boots, and perfect, minimal accessories. Yummm. Too right, they've been great forever. I admit I thought they started looking a little stale on *guys only* after the 70s.)
    .
    They look great it seems, on everyone but me! I have almost no neck. ( During my early teens, a girl I knew teased me so relentlessly and rubbed in the turtle analogy until she made me so mad I stole her boyfriend. But she was right, I have no neck.) With an ample chest and short waist, turtlenecks seem less than optimal. But one really has to be seriously neck-challenged to have to give them a complete pass these days. So many light fabrics and ways to counter the problems ... perhaps a v-shaped necklace, etc! So yes! Enjoy yours, 'cause you look fabulous.
