Hello lovely people! Today I wanted to share my obsession for turtleneck sweaters.  They resurface every winter and immediately create an elegant and sophisticated dimension to my looks. I particularly love to style turtleneck sweaters with a 70's feel by teaming them with a mini skirt and maxi collar winter coat. I often refer back to Mary Tyler Moore when I think of the perfect 70's turtleneck ensemble. I adore the fashion on her show! I encourage you all to invest in a classic turtleneck sweater to add to your winter wardrobe. Team it with either a wide leg trouser, leather mini skirt, pencil line skirt or even a full silk skirt and then of course layer with your winter coat and you'll make a statement. 

I've styled some turtleneck inspired looks for you below. The last look is available from Highpoint Shopping Centre. I have also shared some vintage and current images to help inspire you to take on this trend.
