It's finally December and I can't believe time flew by this quickly! It seems as if it was yesterday we were bringing out our bathing suits and now we are trading them in for our layering pieces. Personally, it's one of my favorite seasons cause it allows you to have fun with different fabrications and mix and match various silhouettes for warmth and style!
As I have gotten older, my shopping techniques have changed and I have started to invest in core staples a lot more. What are some of your favorite closet staples? For winter, I love a great long sleeve turtleneck that is lightweight enough to layer under a coat but soft enough to keep me warm. I am all about everyday pieces that provide exceptional warmth but are still chic and comfortable at the same time.
Although oversized silhouettes are making their mark in the fashion industry, the tight turtleneck has made a comeback and it hugs every woman in the right places. I remember browsing through photos of my mom wearing high waisted pants with her classic turtleneck sweater. I was definitely inspired by her and wanted to recreate this empowering look. What I love about this classic camel color too is that it’s polishes, retro, and sexy at the same time.
Uniqlo's HEATTECH collection is made to keep you warm to the core with its thin clothing that is stretchy, stylish and comfortable against the skin. I kept my turtleneck very neutral because it's one of the most versatile silhouettes worth investing in this winter. It's the perfect transitional piece that can be worn in various ways. I styled it with their high rise legging pants in black to keep the ensemble chic and comfortable enough to run errands throughout the day. P.S. these pants elongated my legs and kept me warm as the temperatures dropped throughout the day.
The best part about these layering pieces is that they are not only practical but provide tons of style!
