Turtlenecks & Knee Length Cardigans

You can tell by now that I'm really enjoying the winter fashions. I especially love two things in particular, turtlenecks and knee length cardigans. Turtlenecks add instant edge to a look, and knee length cardigans add instant sophistication. Paired together, you've got yourself one heck of an untouchable look. Here's some inspiration on how to mix and match them.

Featured are a pair of dark washed skinny jeans with hints of lighter tones to it on the thigh area, paired with a black short sleeve turtleneck (that I have owned for over 7 years - save your classic items ladies!) topped with a grey wool knee length cardigan to brighten up the look. I chose a cardigan that would match the subtle light tones of the jeans, creating a nice balance of color. I wore a leopard print Kinza scarf, which is the perfect scarf to be tucked under a turtle neck because it's fabric is thin and easy to manage. Always wear your thinnest scarves when you come to tuck it in under a turtleneck. 

To accessorize, I took a long jeweled black necklace (that I have also owned for over 6 years) and wrapped it twice around the neck area to give the appearance of a double layered necklace. That's a fun way to be creative with your accessories. I use the same necklace as a bracelet sometimes and just wrap it around my wrist a bunch of times for a fun and messy look.
