How to Wear a Striped Turtleneck

How to Wear a Striped Turtleneck | www.girlmeetsgold.com

You guys know I’ve been all about curated a capsule wardrobe lately: shopping less, buying with intention, wearing more of what I own. One of those wardrobe staples/must-haves is easily a striped knit top. With so many variations, I think it’s smart to have this style in a few silhouettes. One style favorite? The striped turtleneck.

If you want a quick way to look and feel Parisian chic, a striped turtleneck is your new best friend. It’s an effortless staple that not only keeps you bundled up in colder months but transitions beautifully into warmer weather. Think white denim, cropped denim and espadrilles…the options are endless.

Here I tucked mine into these ripped Levi’s jeans that are ultra flattering. A high rise style definitely helps make tucking a breeze and I love how clean and polished a full tuck looks. I slipped into these black Marc Fisher ankle boots but a pair of loafers in cognac or nude would really pull the look together into spring.

FYI, my exact top is a couple years old from Madewell but there are plenty of perfect dupes out there to recreate the look and I linked several below.

I topped the look with a felt hat but you can again take the look into warmer weather with a straw boater hat!

Here are a couple more looks you can create with the striped turtleneck:

Have you ever shopped at Everlane? If you love classic, effortless, easy, chic, high-quality-yet-affordable "basics" from a totally transparent brand, Everlane is for you. If you're looking to curate a capsule wardrobe, Everlane is definitely for you!

As I'm getting a little bit older, (hello 30's!), I'm more and more interested in creating a closet full of staples I can reach for again and again, with every season. You know those pieces that don't go out of style? We all need those—at any age. Everlane truly makes doing this so easy—and affordable! Without sacrificing quality.

I recently snagged this Cotton Double V Tank that launched this month in navy/white stripe which is truly a wardrobe must-have. It's 100% cotton and the perfect wear-every-season piece. It's not only comfy as can be but easy - b r e e z y, too. I love the classic vibe the stripes give for summer and how you can just as easily layer it up into fall. It also comes in crisp white, black and topaz i.e. the most gorgeous warm orange tone. The best part? Just $18. 

This piece effortlessly tucks into your favorite jeans but also has a swingy silhouette left untucked. I can also see this being a great lightweight staple layered under a blazer or cardigan for the office. Personally, I'm a jeans girl so I wore it with these Everlane Cheeky Straight Jeans. These are just $68 but I'd honestly pay double. Everlane says these jeans are "engineered for the perfect rear fit" thanks to the perfect pocket placement and a raised back that lifts and tightens, and if that isn't the best thing to find in a jean then I don't know what is. For reference, these are in Sky Blue and I'm wearing a size 26. I am usually a 25 or 26 and they fit perfectly. This is also the ankle length and I'm 5'6". 

I also grabbed this Everlane Day Market Tote in Light Taupe to use as my work bag and I am absolutely head over heels with the color, style, how much it fits, just everything. It's so roomy but doesn't feel bulky at all, is easy to carry and it's 100% Italian leather for under $200? Yes, yes, yes! This comes in several classic colors and they also have a magazine tote. 

As always, thank you for reading!

Whenever I’m in an outfit funk, I remember I buy basics for a reason. It’s so nice having pieces you can rely on that just work. With everything. A striped top is just one of those things and it forever will be. I added this Madewell striped turtleneck into my wardrobe this season and I don’t see it ever leaving. It’s such a comfy piece that you can wear now layered with your go-to moto, anorak and cardigan or pair with cropped denim and cutoffs into spring and summer. Hello, perfect top!

I added it to my favorite Free People busted knee skinny jeans in black and slipped into these Everlane loafers in camel for a bit of a Parisian/Audrey Hepburn vibe. (Sizing tip: size UP in these, they run small!)

This is definitely one of those looks that just feels put together in an instant. You could easily swap out the ripped jeans for sleek black pants and pumps for the office. 

My camel faux suede moto jacket is old but I’m adding super similar dupes at a great price point below.

One of my favorite pieces of outerwear that I reach for to complete a look is a faux leather jacket. I have several dark colored options and pretty much always reach for the same one for a night out or to add a touch of edge to any look, but recently I realized I was lacking a major staple. One in tan/beige/camel/caramel/light brown! With spring quickly approaching I decided it was a must-have transitional laying piece, and a great way to lighten up my go-to faux leather look.

I had been on the hunt for awhile (well--a couple weeks, but that's a long time to be dreaming about ONE particular item of clothing that you haven't found am I right?) and this one from Fevrie fit the bill perfectly! It's their Pretty Pleats Jacket and I love how it has the edginess of faux leather with unique perforated detailing, but also takes on a sweet and feminine vibe from the pleats. I love the lighter, brighter, and fresher feel that the tan color gives for the warmer months and LOVE that it will look gorgeous paired with summer lights and brights!
