Happy Tuesday, friends! Today I’m wrapping up my series on 5 Ways to Wear a Camel Turtleneck, and I wanted to come up with an ultra-casual look without any black.
All the other outfits in this series have a strong black component to them, and while black does look great with camel, so does denim and ivory and other light neutrals.
Okay, so I did carry a black bag, but that was more of an afterthought. I’ll address that further down in the post.
This is the GapFit sherpa hoodie that I featured in last week’s Try-On Haul. It’s really cozy and warm, plus it’s kind of trendy at the moment, which helps keep the classic camel turtleneck looking current.
This jacket runs true to size (I have the small) and it’s on sale for $49. It also comes in, wait for it… black! But I love how the ivory one has the camel trim for added interest, almost like it’s begging to be paired with a camel turtleneck.
Now, this turtleneck is NOT the one I wore in the other four posts. This is the C by Bloomingdale’s cashmere turtleneck in the camel color, not the honey. The honey color that is showing on the website is lighter than this. This camel must have sold out.
It’s also a slightly darker and cooler shade of camel, which is probably more flattering for my cool undertones. I definitely recommending sizing up in this one; I have the medium.
These Levi’s were also featured in last week’s Try-On Haul. They’re the Lapis Sun color in a size 29, and I have no idea why they show a traditional denim hem on the website and these have a distressed raw hem, but I like these better.
If any of you ordered them, I’d love to know if they look like mine, or like the ones on the website.
I have to say, though, I’m not liking these pictures as much as I thought I would. I thought the jeans were more flattering. I guess it depends on the angle; some pictures look worse than others, but I feel like they add about 10 pounds.
Maybe I’ll like them better with spring and summer looks… that’s what I envisioned them with when I decided to keep them. What say you?
I love how these P448 Johns have the leopard print suede detail at the heel to pull in the camel from the sweater. I have the the size 38, for reference, and they’re currently 40% off at Bloomingdale’s!
These earrings are a fun new addition to my accessory wardrobe — I picked them up when Anthro ran a sale on accessories a few weeks ago.
I’ve always loved a hoop earring, and these have a modern aesthetic with almost a layered look.
I also wanted to quickly mention the black bag — it’s kind of harsh against the rest of the outfit. I thought the brown handles would tie it in, but I should have carried my taupe Everlane tote. My daughter “borrowed” it a few weeks ago, and I haven’t seen it since. I think it’s housing her knitting supplies, so I really need to get her a more appropriate bag for that and reclaim my leather tote!
As an aside, I experimented with not wearing mascara or eyeliner on the bottom. I feel like my eyes look nekkid!
So yeah, I like this outfit in theory, but I’d like to try it again with my favorite AG Farrah skinny jeans. They’re also a light to mid-indigo wash, but the skinny silhouette might look better with this sherpa/turtleneck combo on top.
Plus, if it was super cold out, I could swap the sneakers for boots and socks. I don’t think I’d like boots with these jeans, but skinny jeans with these or these could definitely work with the rest of this outfit.
I hope you enjoyed this series on 5 ways to style a camel turtleneck. I realize they’re all fairly neutral, but that seems to be what I have most of in my closet at the moment.
If you want a recap post with all of these looks together that you can save or pin for future reference, I plan to get one up later this afternoon.
