Cozy and chic: this fall’s best turtlenecks are anything but basic


Let’s face it, it’s going to get colder as fall turns into winter here in New Jersey. The trusty turtleneck is the perfect way to keep warm while sipping your Starbucks hot cocoa. Your turtleneck need not be basic. Opt for color, texture, and warmth. Here are some stylish turtlenecks to keep you lookin’ fab:

Nordstrom, Garden State Plaza: A wonderfully slouchy turtleneck by Free People pullover styled with dropped shoulders for an extra-cozy fit is knit from a supersoft, fuzzy alpaca blend. The slate grey is also really flattering and wearable.


Bloomingdale’s: Shops at Riverside: A sexy take on the turtleneck is this Maje style at Bloomingdale’s.  The illusion neckline adds allure and a dressy feel. Wear this with a leather mini skirt for an edgy outfit.


Banana Republic, Garden State Plaza: How about a turtleneck dress?! Opt for a sleek black dress that can easily go from day to night! Wear to work, then add a clutch handbag and create a night out look. You can also wear this turtleneck dress with a pair of high boots!
