Classic Turtleneck Season Returns

Turtlenecks are my all time favorite go to style during the cold seasons. My first memory of turtlenecks was an itchy one, a mandatory dress code in the winter per grandmas’ way. Grandma always forced us to wear them, to keep the neck warm preventing the cold. Grandma rocked her different turtlenecks all year long coining granny chic. I adore turtlenecks for their boldness & elegance with a touch of granny chic. I have been gravitating more towards comfortable fashion in my daily styles.

The famous 70s’ iconic American fashion designer Roy Halston Frowick said,” Turtlenecks are the most comfortable garment you can wear. They move with the body, and they’re flattering too, because they accentuate the face and elongate the figure.” I agree that turtlenecks are cozy fitting and keeps the body warm by not requiring to drag a scarf around. The high neck detail veils the bare skin accenting the face which gives the impression of a elongated physique. High necks were the most popular statement made on the fall/winter runway collections conveyed strikingly distinctively. Need we say more?! hehe. (there’s a reason why Steve Jobs always wore them lol)

A Pop of Color (Look 1)

TOBIs’ unique yet comfy LBD, body-hugging and tightly holding everything right in its’ place. The high turtleneck can be styled in different lengths, ribbed knit, cut out elbows, and designed to bear the legs.

Perfect dress for when its’ too cold out, but the hoe inside of you needs to show some skin… so you sacrifice the elbows kind of dress haha jk

High Bun hair tied and placed on the crown of the head to accentuate the face. Love how high buns draw attention to the face and gives a mini face-lift. High buns give off a very sleek & classy chic look that can be pulled off with any outfit.

Colorfully Black (Look 2)

“Women who wear BLACK live colorful lives.” – Neiman Marcus

I have to admit 80% of my wardrobe is black. I love & live in black clothing all year long. This look is for my black clothing loving ladies who believes there can never be too much black.

Look 2 is the best duo to be warm & sexy simultaneously. A cozy warm turtleneck tunic, bearing minimal legs covered slightly with sexy thigh highs boots. Comfort + SwagtheHALAway classic

H&M Turtleneck Sweater long enough to wear as a tunic. Love 2-for tops especially when it can be worn as a top & tunic. They can be styled endlessly in both ways. The top keeps you warm to bear some legs.

Tucked-in hair (Hair Tuck) is a quick & fun classic hairstyle that complements high neck tops and scarves, while keeping you extra warm. This hairstyle takes only a few seconds and costs nothing. To achieve this look, I wear my high necks and make sure my hair is spread around my whole head not just concentrated in one area. Pull out a few strands of hair from different areas of my head for a relaxed look. Voila!  This trick can be used when you want to give the illusion of a short bob look to change it up.

theHALAway statement piece:

THIGH HIGHS!! These definitely need a separate post on their own soon (stay tuned). Thigh highs are perfect for the fall/winter making us look & feel sexy while keeping our legs warm.

theHALAway tip:

 MAC Satin Lipstick in REBEL (Midtonal Cream Plum) when I’m feeling my inner goth twin come out. Plum + Dark Red hues makes me feel confident & sexy in a dominatrix kid of way (hehe).  GIRLPOWER!!
