Wardrobe Re-Wear : Black Turtleneck

It’s been a while since I’ve done a Wardrobe Re-Wear.  These are my favorite posts, but at the end of the semester, it was just too hard to get one done.  Now it’s back, but I’m switching things up a little–I’m taking a black turtleneck from a recent post and showing you another way to wear it.  A black turtleneck is a must-have basic wardrobe piece that never goes out of style!  As with any basic piece, a black turtleneck can be worn for a variety of occasions.

OUTFIT 1: Office Ready

This outfit was recently featured as part of my post about Kushyfoot.  You can see more pics and get outfit details here.  For the office, I love pairing a black turtleneck with a patterned skirt and boots.  It’s a very put-together look that will keep you warm in the winter.

OUTFIT 2: Date Night Ready

You can quickly transform your outfit into a date night one by switching the skirt for some distressed jeans.  Here, I swapped the accessories and shoes as well to completely change up the look. I came so close to passing up these jeans when I spotted them on the clearance rack at J. Crew Factory, but I’m so glad I came to my senses before I left the store.  
Turtleneck: JCP, $7.99 (with code JANBUY50)
