Personal Shopping – Turtlenecks Can Be Stylish!

Photography: Christine Pienaar

The classic warm and smart looking  turtleneck sweater has made a comeback in men’s fashions recently. I, for one, feel it has brought back memories of my 80’s upbringing.
My family was turtleneck strong as both parents and my brother were often seen wearing them when they ventured out to work, a curling match or a hockey game. I can even remember myself wearing a turtleneck dickey!! (remember those?) Now, decades later, it appears the classic turtleneck is not just for Canadian sporting events but has become a fashion statement for both women and men – I think our fellow Canadian Drake helped the cause by often sporting a turtleneck this winter.
Whether sporting  basic black cotton with a business blazer or a fashionable colour with jeans, turtlenecks are a true collectable item for any fashion conscious person.  If you are looking to make the classic turtleneck stylish again by including it into your wardrobe, check out the outfit below. Mabelle Style recommends items from stores like Club Monaco & Aritzia.
