I was ready to take today off. No holiday and no real good reason, it just sounded great to not work yesterday – not even editing photos sounded remotely interesting. And I wasn’t unproductive yesterday. I cleaned a little, bought some holiday gifts online, wrapped the two presents I have (I’m embarrassingly behind), and we did laundry. But you know, sitting down at my computer sounded dull. But I’m proud to say that I – obviously – made it through. Luckily this turtleneck and leather jacket outfit is really cute, so it made the editing and writing go pretty fast, but I was ecstatic when I finished…
Turtleneck and Leather Jacket Outfit
I shared this turtleneck and blazer outfit last week and asked on Instagram how everyone felt about turtlenecks. As expected, it was fairly evenly divided between loving them and hating them. I’m convinced turtlenecks are the cilantro of winter fashion. Full disclosure: I used that line in my Instagram/Facebook post, but it still makes me giggle, so I thought it was worth repeating. Anyway… this turtleneck sweater isn’t so confining like traditional turtlenecks. You really want a knit turtleneck sweater to avoid that claustrophobic feeling. And I actually love these types of cozy sweaters because they layer wonderfully under my favorite moto jacket, keeping me warm without having to button and zip up every little place!
Layering Sweaters and Jackets
Since I’m sure a big fan of this kind of layering, I have a few tricks to make it all work so well. Well, one trick in particular. I love pulling the sleeves out at the cuff so you can get a peak of them with the jacket. It looks fine without this little step, but I think it makes combos like a turtleneck and leather jacket look more like a coordinated ensemble that a random effort to stay warm!
