This morning, we wrapped up my series on 5 Ways to Wear a Camel Turtleneck!
I promised a recap post with all of the looks together in one place, so you can save them or pin for future reference, so here it is.
Yes, I’m aware these are all neutral looks. I didn’t set out to do that, but that just happens to be what I have in my closet at the moment. Of course you can wear camel with colors or prints, but honestly, I always go straight to denim or black with a pop of animal print when I wear camel.
I almost wore my oxblood leather jacket with one of these looks, and I think that would look really sharp, but I also wanted you to be able to shop your closet to recreate these outfits and I figured most people don’t have that. It’s also not an easy thing to run out and purchase, unlike that ivory sherpa, which is a very accessible price point, and would be easy to wear with lots of other thing.
Well, there I go again with my tangents. Anyway, let’s recap!
5 Ways to Wear a Camel Turtleneck
Outfit #1 was a workwear look with black pants and snake print pumps. I topped it off with a black wool coat and carried a black shoulder bag with a chain strap, both of which are in keeping with the color palette and the overall level of formality of this outfit.
Outfit #2 was something I might wear for date night, or to meet a friend for lunch. I paired my camel turtleneck with washed black skinny jeans, and I topped it off with a black leather jacket and added leopard flats for interest.
This time I selected a black crossbody, because it’s carefree and easy to hang over the back of my chair at a restaurant.
Outfit #3 was the look with slim straight bluejeans and a black quilted vest — perfect for running errands or a coffee date with a friend. I chose black boots to bookend the look and a black shoulder bag to keep the same color palette throughout.
Outfit #4 was a casual look with white jeans and snake print slip-on sneakers. I wore a denim jacket on top and added a leopard print belt for a little more interest.
This time I grabbed my Neverfull because I like how the shades of brown complement the look without overpowering it. (Black would be too harsh.) Also, a tote is a great bag to have when you’re going to be out all day; I can even stash my denim jacket inside if I get overheated.
A nice “similar for less” option would be this Everlane Day Market Tote. I have the taupe, and it’s a really nice neutral. In fact, it’s so nice that my daughter absconded with it, and left me high and dry.
And outfit #5 was another casual mom-about-town outfit, this time with light wash cropped jeans and fashion sneakers. I topped it off with a cozy sherpa and carried a black nylon tote.
I actually think the Neverfull or my taupe Everlane tote would have looked better with this outfit, though. The black is a bit distracting, but it’s a casual look and this one works just fine.
