Mock Necks Work Two Seasons

We have a special place in our hearts for turtlenecksTurtlenecks don’t transition into warmer weather as easily as mock necks do.  The lower neckline works better with shorts and skirts with shorter hems. You can layer them with a jacket from any season and dress them up with accessories.  A personality-plus pair of sunglasses and a top handle purse will send you on your way.

Dressing Up

If you’re loving the look, you’re not stuck to shirts and sweaters.  This season’s best dresses feature mock necks in long lengths. Keep warm with a fur-lined coat and stay trendy with winterproofed ankle boots.  The overall look is much lighter but you won’t have to sacrifice warmth for fashion.

Work It Out

For a sleek, corporate casual look, simply add an updated blazer.  Replace your standard button-up blouses with mock necks that look just as professional.   Keep the color monochromatic from head to toe to visually drop those holiday pounds.

Focus on Details

Wondering how to tell the difference?  Turtlenecks reach up to your jawline, while mock necks only hit the Adam’s Apple.  Keep warm with other winter accessories like berets and over-the-knee boots.  You’ll feel less bundled up and will still be able to fight flu season like a champ.

Bright Hues Make You Happy

If you’re anxious to get a start on spring, start working with color.  Wearing mock necks in bright hues like red or orange helps you feel more upbeat.  They look smashing under winter wool fabrics and prints like houndstooth and gingham.
