How to Wear An Extreme Turtleneck
Cozy up to this take on a classic style

Sarah Marion, Charleston store manager, Cynthia Rowley
“For a similar look to Barbara Bui’s, select complementary textiles, like a silk and wool turtleneck under a wool knit cape. If you layer a piece that is too heavy or light, the fabrics could compete, losing the silhouette.”

Lindsey Carter, designer, Troubadour
“You should pair an oversize turtleneck with something on the body-con side like leggings or something fitted at the waist, like high-waisted trousers or a pencil skirt.”

Mike ”Mac” Mcabee, Studio M hair stylist
“Let your hair complement this look—less is more. Do a middle part that’s smooth and shiny or even a top knot with a little texture.”
