The Wardrobe Staple Every Prime Woman Needs

The Turtleneck

It’s a trend dating back to at least the 15th century. What makes this garment so great is that it can be worn by all genders, sizes and ages. You just have to find the one that flatters you best!

Turtlenecks come in various styles that help you achieve the look you want – modest, professional, chic or casual. They help camouflage the neck (a problem for many Prime women) by drawing attention elsewhere. The possibilities are endless when it comes to incorporating a turtleneck into an outfit. There is no one who has worn it better than the turtleneck queen herself, Diane Keaton. For a woman in her prime, she has proven to be unforgettable thanks to her starring roles and trademark look. In her book, Let’s Just Say It Wasn’t Pretty, she talks about her unique style, which includes none other than – turtlenecks.

Have some fun and style your turtleneck:

  • Wear a statement piece of jewelry.
  • Switch the jewelry for a scarf or belt.
  • Layer your turtleneck with a vest, blazer or dress.
  • Experiment with colors and textures.

A basic black turtleneck is essential because it is classy, versatile and will blend in well with everything in your closet. You can dress it up or layer it, go neutral or add a splash of color.

For those who may not want something hugging their neck as much, try a cowl neck turtleneck. It is looser around the neck and adds volume due to the multiple layers, resulting in a chic, dressier look. These also cover the hips!

Turtlenecks can also add interest, making the entire outfit. Try either stripes or the very “in” fringe detail to draw the eye down, creating a longer silhouette.
