The Turtleneck Is A Fall Essential You Must Reach Out For STAT
When it comes to fall essentials, I am extremely biased towards turtleneck as outerwear. In fact, I probably am a little too late to endorse this particular outfit, given that I stay in Mumbai and it’s highly unlikely for me to find an apt situation in which I can use the “Winter Has Come” quote. But this year around we’re experiencing chilly nights on this side of the country too. And also, since the rest of India has no other choice but to take their winter wear out for a spin, I thought of giving the turtleneck its due. I don’t know why people think this fall staple is an unflattering outfit to own. To be honest, the turtleneck is a stylish piece, and it’s not just cozy but also a perfect addition to one’s winter wardrobe. Obviously, any outfit can go wrong when not styled well. So I decided to work some turtleneck outfit formulas for three different occasions that you can totally rock this season. Featuring a simple turtleneck piece, these three looks are all you’ve got to try to restore your faith in this outerwear. Scroll on; this is probably the only inspiration you need to score brownie points in styling a turtleneck piece. Also, who knows, maybe after this, a turtleneck will be your favourite winter outfit.
1. The Casual Look
Want to work a comfortable and casual look that’s also pretty chic? Layer your favourite summer V-neck dress over a thin turtleneck top. Keep the vibe pretty casual by working this with a pair of sneakers. A sleek tote and a pair of Lennons are all you need to complete your look.

2. The Workwear
If you’re one who is seeking a professional look, let me tell you that a turtleneck is also perfect for the boardroom. Team a turtleneck top with a pair of flannel chinos. The patent tasseled loafers will label you as ‘Stylish Missy At Work’ instantly. Stick to a couple of gold rings as accessories, and don’t forget a structured arm candy aka your regular work bag.

3. The Glam Outerwear
A turtleneck coat? Why not!? I found this red one at Zara and it was love at first sight. Wear a tank top or a V-neck cami under it and go for a pair of skinny ankle-length jeans. A pair of ankle boots and a lovely neutral bucket bag, and you’re going to be the talk of the town (for your impeccable style, of course).
