Retro fashion: How to wear a turtle neck sweater!

Hello pretty women!

You know what I have been doing every winters? I become so lazy and keep myself locked inside the room. Winters are romantic. Winters are all about peace, hot coffee and lots of food. This year, I wish to change this monotonous routine and take myself out of the comfort zone. I want to explore myself this season in terms of fashion, work and also my food habits. Well this post is all about the classy winter trend. I have already bought turtle neck sweaters in different colors and believe me they are so versatile that I can easily create many outfits with them.

Why I wanted to create a post on “turtle necks” is because of the fact that so many of you think that this fashion is extremely boring and plain but this 90’s retro fashion is super chic and classy. I am a huge fan of Marilyn Monroe. She loved wearing turtle necks with her high-waisted pants. So I have come up with the classy ways to wear a turtle neck sweater. I am pretty sure that by the end you would want to try this because this trend is absolutely gorgeous.

Let’s talk about this classy retro fashion and how to wear a turtle neck sweater and dress:

  • Body hugging dress: I love buying over-sized clothes in the winter for the love of cute things and comfort but we can never ignore the fact that women look truly beautiful and feminine in the tight clothes. If you have a gorgeous figure and those curves, you are going to love this dress.
