there is just something about a black turtleneck- something elegant, simple, sophisticated! the best thing is its slimming!

i love a black turtleneck paired back to white, charcoal, camel or navy. so chic! cotton knit, fine gauge cotton, merino, lambswool or cashmere. flat, ribbed, chunky or cabled. my favorite is a slim fitting turtleneck in cashmere with a longer neck. folded over so it sits right below thee chin. so chic, so flattering, so slimming!

elegant with a navy pinstripe suit, simple with a charcoal grey flannel trouser, sophisticated with white denim. chic layered under a camel coat or a white shirt (yes, classic under a white shirt). perfect for fall layered under a dress, add some black tights and boots, instant chic for the ladies!

i don’t know exactly what it is, but everyone looks chic in a black turtleneck! maybe because it’s so mart, so simple, so sophisticated and all so slimming!
