My Favorite Under $30 Turtleneck

Let’s talk about basics.

I have a few thoughts on them.

First, you need them, obviously. They are the key to making sure you can put an outfit together. You have “a closet full of nothing to wear when you lack them.”

Second, the foundation for classic style is better basics, so if that’s your wheelhouse, you need a good assortment.

Finally, when it comes to where to spend and save, better basics are in the spend category.

UNLESS you find one that is fabulous and inexpensive, which I have 🙂

A Better Basic at a Better Price in All Sizes

Turtleneck | Pants | Shoes | Bag

I bought this last October in tan, black and navy. It’s a great piece, easy, fits and wears well, not tight but not too oversized.

And it’s only $28 in sizes XS – 6X.

It’s thin enough to add a blazer on top but you can still wear on its own.

Here, I’m wearing it with pieces that will look familiar.

The pants are from J.Crew Factory. I’ve worn them for a while but featured them most recently yesterday.

My shoes are Sam Edelman, they have a nice low kitten heel so they give you height but wear like a flat.

And finally, this cute little top handle bag from Amazon.

Also wondering what size you are wearing… I’m a similar size so will help me to decide what to order.

I love this post because it’s almost turtleneck weather where I live. Are these comparable to the J.Crew tissue turtlenecks?

Yours is the email I look for to most everyday. I love your writing style and content, and I can relate to most, if not all of the issues address therein. Clearly I have signed up for the daily email...did so a few years ago, but never got the Wardrobe Essentials Checklist. Any way I can get that? Thanks for looking into this, for all your candid insights and cheerleading for us real women. Keep up the good fight and warmest regards... Mary
