Recently, we saw a picture of J-Lo rocking a winter look with a black turtleneck and that got us wondering... are turtlenecks back in style?
Local 4 Style Editor Jon Jordan joined “Live In The D” host Tati Amare to explain if turtlenecks are a new trend or something that never went away.
Cool and stylish people have always appreciated the turtleneck, Jordan said, adding that they have been reinvented in a big way this season.
Jordan said there are a variety of turtlenecks including low tier, plaid, tie dye, ruffled shoulders, cut-outs, metallic, leopard print, and more.
There are simple ways you can even use a turtleneck to elevate from to black-tie. Jordan said you can get a metallic or black turtle neck and pair it with a long skirt, satin skirt, or sequent pants. He also said adding gobs of pearls or an exciting shawl will have you ready for any black-tie event.
The style editor also said a turtleneck can reinvent a sleeveless dress. He said you can put a turtle neck underneath what you may think is a summery dress and reinvent it, especially if it it is a scoop neck or V-neck.
Jordan also recommended turtle neck collars that you can just slip on in case you want to make your own turtleneck out of an existing garment.
