turtleneck and cardigan

Turtlenecks + Cardigans.

My winter 2020 uniform has been turtlenecks layered beneath chunky cardigans. (And, despite my best efforts, I’m back, most days, in jeans. They are just easier for me to pair with boots on cold days!) Above, I’m wearing a tissue turtleneck from J. Crew (I now own like ten of these) and this Vita Grace cardigan. I have been branching out into patterned turtlenecks recently — I especially love this tartan style from J. Crew (70% off right now)! I have also snagged a couple of excellent chunky cardigans from Zara this season, including this one with the most perfect jeweled buttons.

To sustain this winter vibe, I am currently majorly lusting after…

If cardigans just aren’t your style, I also love layering a turtleneck under a blazer like this (but then go high-waisted on the jeans, tuck in your turtleneck, and make sure your shoes are FIERCE to avoid looking too buttoned up — think embellished biker boots like these) OR under a funnel neck sweatshirt like this (I own this exact style in the camel color and especially like it layered over a striped turtleneck) or this (!!! — such good colors).

Most often, I’m wearing this little cardi-turti combo at home with my velvet house slippers (similar here), and I like to throw on embellished stud earrings like these or these in the evenings to mark the end of the work day and the launch of happy hour.

What’s your winter uniform looking like?

P.S. More turtlenecks I love here.

P.P.S. A strange day trip abroad.

  1. I feel this look. I am currently wearing a lumberjack-esque variant: a navy & white thin striped turtleneck under a navy tartan flannel tunic shirt. Haha! Love that Vita Grace cardigan … such a chic shape, and the pearls speak to my June-baby heart!

    In terms of other cardigans, last winter I bought Alex Mill’s chunky cotton cardigan in 2 colors and both have gotten a tonnnn of wear this year. I also have one of babaà’s natural cotton cardigans and I throw it on over ev.er.y.thing!

  2. I’ve been going back and forth on the Vita Grace cardigan too, ever since you first posted about it… I’m not sure if I like the distressing; partly because I’m late to the distressed trend — I only last year DIY’ed an old pair of jeans to make them distressed. But, it does seem to balance out the very “proper” vibe of the pearls. It does add such interest to a jeans + tee outfit!

    1. I hear you – the distressing was a mild hiccup for me, too, but IRL the quality of the sweater and the drama of the pearls really negates the distressing. I barely notice! Love it 🙂

  3. May finally need to pull the trigger on that Vita Grace cardi after its many mentions on here – it’s perfect! The shipping-from-the-UK part always makes me pause, but I think it may finally be time…
