Cooler days and nights have arrived! Raquel Greer Gordian of Greer Image Consulting gave Studio 512 her tips to get through fall and winter, based on a single wardrobe staple: the black turtleneck. She talked through the “evolution” of layering for cool, cooler and cold weather.
Raquel suggests to start with a fitted black turtleneck. If you don’t already have one in your closet, consider something thin that will make layering easier. Some outfit ideas from Raquel:
Button-Down Shirt: “Keeping the buttons open enough to see accessories over your black turtleneck will help set this style off! Choose necklaces that you can layer for focal points, and add a leather jacket on top to enhance the turtleneck. It’ll give the look a street-style finish!”
Pullover Sweater: “There’s a lot to play with in this combo! A crewneck sweater, like I’ve chosen, will give you a sporty look, but you could also do a v-neck sweater for a more ‘preppy’ appeal. One tip: avoid boat neck or wide neck pullovers, because the tightness of the black turtleneck will sit oddly. If you’re going for a bulky sweater on top, try to balance it with a tailored pant. Add an oversized shirt jacket (or ‘shacket’ — all the rage this year!) over the top for a light layer. A shirt over a sweater — instead of the other way around — keeps this look fresh and interesting.”
Romper: “Don’t put away your summertime romper yet! On warmer days, shorts may still be okay, so try this. The boxy shape of romper allows for a shorter, boxier jacket like a denim shearling or a bomber. Add sneakers for a casual day look.”
Jumpsuit or Dress: “Use the turtleneck to keep warm under a dressier look for a date or wedding/special occasion. The fitted turtleneck will easily work with a spaghetti strap dress that’s any shape. Add long coat over the top for a dramatic, elegant, dressy evening touch.”
