Cassandra Sethi, Founder and Stylist at Next Level Wardrobe, was featured by TODAY on ways to style turtlenecks during the colder months for every occasion, plus tips for how to choose the right turtleneck for your wardrobe.
Finding a turtleneck option in the right fabric is key when shopping for a new addition to your wardrobe. Sethi recommends wool and synthetic blends like wool-polyester and wool-acrylic, but for true luxury, cashmere. “The good news is, with cashmere, there are price points at every level so it’s a very approachable fabric to integrate into your turtleneck wardrobe,” Sethi adds.
Sticking to Next Level Wardrobe’s proprietary styling system, Sethi advises choosing one turtleneck style to start, “making sure you have at least one light color and one dark color in your wardrobe.”
For the office, Sethi recommends sticking to the core colors of gray, black, and navy to appear polished and put-together day after day. For a casual look, she suggests lighter fabrics in lighter colors. For a night out, Sethi proposes thinking outside of the box – “short-sleeved, cropped and sleeveless turtleneck styles”.
Since it’s easy to feel disappointed when a piece doesn’t look the way you envisioned it to, Sethi gives this tip to prevent discouragement: expect to try on at least eight different brands to find one or two that you like.
