What To Wear With The Turtleneck?


I’m starting with the obvious.

A black ankle pant.

I need a new pair and I want them to be tailored with a slightly above ankle length; they need to fit tight but not excruciatingly like a pair of jeans.

They will be for another day and another mood.








The Funny Face, Audrey Hepburn look is one that works for me and I believe most women. The turtleneck sweater, a pair of cropped black pants and a good loafer or ballet flat. What’s not to love? It is a kind of uniform but that’s ok, actually, it’s what makes it a simple and wearable addition to our wardrobes. We make it our own with personality and the flair of a great coat.

Pants are particular.

We have our favourites – those to make us feel taller and slimmer or more curvaceous if that’s the deal. I like to refresh mine most seasons as they work overtime and generally I buy two pairs the same and alternate them as I would for a favourite shoe. I have been wearing a wider leg, the style with a tuxedo stripe, but I need a change and the ankle pant, with the slightly narrower leg is what I am feeling.

Turtlenecks on the way and ankle pants are chosen – now onto the loafers. xv

Ohhhh, slim black or white ankle pants or pencil skirts without a doubt.


I am so sad that JCrew stopped offering the Martie pant. It had the perfect “Funny Face” look. The search continues…
