Today I’m highlighting two of the biggest 2017 trends: the statement sleeve and the layered turtleneck. We’ve been seeing both of these over the past many months, on and off runways, and I’m so happy that they’re here to stay. First of all, I’ve always been obsessed with turtlenecks, even when they were very very very uncool. I believe it was a source of much amusement for my brothers when I was in middle school, but even their daily ridicule could not cure me of my affinity for these cozy beauties. Trendy or not, there’s just nothing better during the colder months, and this season it’s not just about the turtlenecks themselves. It’s turtlenecks layered under everything—dresses, other sweaters, and (my favorite) button down shirts.
Now, this crisp white button down is not just your average joe crisp white button down. As you can see above, it has the most amazing split bell sleeves joined by bow ties at the wrists. Statement sleeves of all shapes and sizes have been making major waves this year (just take a spin through some of my favorites in the widget below!), but I’m a particular fan of the split sleeve variety. This crisp, lightweight collared shirt will be an easy wear through the spring and summer, but I loved it layered over a turtleneck for a winter-friendly spin. Especially with those split bell sleeves, the contrasting black turtleneck underneath really highlights the cool arm detail.
I’ve worn this silver circle collar necklace obsessively since getting it last fall, and almost immediately went back to buy it in gold as well. I often go for simple, geometric jewelry, and these beauties certainly fit the bill. There are only a few left in stock, so I’ve rounded up a few similars below (including this near-identical silver version) since they will likely sell out in about 30 seconds…
