Some days comfort wins over fashion.. but that doesn't mean we have to be unfashionable; we just have to dress fashionably comfortable. That was a tiny bit of a tounge twister but I am sure you all know what I am trying to get at here.
As you know I have a slight obsession with turtle necks in basically every style but especially in the cozy knit form. They are extremely on trend right now and it is easy to get your hands on one as they seem to be everywhere at the moment (in store, online.. you name it) and no wonder.. they are a really great piece to style back with many different outfit styles.
Finding the right fit and style for you is essential to feeling your best and most comfortable when wearing it. You want the knit to flatter your body shape so you must think about these few things before you purchase one.
Length: Finding the correct knit length in proportion to your height is a must. If you are taller you can get away with a longer length, but if you are shorter you don't want it to swamp your body and make you look shorter. I suggest going for a length that either hits your hips or just over or to lengthen your bottom half try a cropped style with a high waisted skirt or pants.
Neck Shape: Think a softer draping neck style or a more structured fit depending on personal preference of course. Tip: You don't want the neck style to make you look neckless and like you are a turtle popping your head out for air.
Colour: Picking a colour that suits your style, skin tone and one that will go back with what is already in your wardrobe is a must.
Texture: This may be dependant of where you are situated and what the climate is like. I find going for a simple knit rather than a busy one will allow you to wear it back with more. Think printed coats or cut out rough textured denim.
Featured is long sleeve Finders Keepers black knit..it has been one of my Winter staples this season it just seems to go back with so many pieces in my wardrobe and is one of the most comfortable knits I have ever worn. For me the soft falling neck, slightly fitted body & longer arm length are the perfect fit for me and my style.
