For evening

Instead of reaching for a dress and blazer combination, why not try a skinny turtleneck over a voluminous skirt in a sumptuous fabric? We particularly love this chic navy and black combination.

For work

A stone gray turtleneck brings a white top and bold, red trousers into cold weather territory. Make sure the top is structured and the turtleneck is sleek enough to layer without adding unwanted bulk. Pair with a printed bag in a matching color to tie the look together.

For weekend

The tried-and-true jeans and a sweater combination is made more interesting by layering a button-down under the chunky turtleneck. Make sure the collar is big enough to peek out of the top and that the jeans are slim fitting. Add a hat and finish with a louche leather bag in a warm hue.
