Turtleneck Dress Outfits

I've been trying this new thing where I don't purchase a trending item unless I can make multiple outfits featuring that one item. This week's item is the Turtleneck Dress. There are many different reasons I am hesitant to get a turtleneck dress. Primarily because it's a turtleneck...

STORY TIME: When I was in elementary school, and unable to pay for or pick out my own clothes, my mother was the person who dressed me. Her outfit of choice? A turtleneck and oversized jeans. Whenever we had dress down day (I went to a charter school w/ uniforms), I always was the one wearing a turtleneck. What put the nail in the coffin was when my class had a dance performance in front of the whole school. My mom was to show up with a change of clothes before my performance. Guess what she decided to bring. A turtleneck! And this wasn't any old turtleneck, this was the ugliest turtleneck I'd ever seen; it was bright red with a bunch of little images all over it that far away would have reminded you of throw up. The worse part? It was tight and uncomfortable to even dance in - she must have forgotten that I wasn't a flat chested 8 year old. When I walked out onto the stage, you could literally hear the shock in the audience. My classmates couldn't even help but stare during the actual recital. Since then, I swore I would never wear a turtleneck again.

And here we are. 11 years later and I'm about to present 3 looks based entirely around a turtleneck. Who would have thought. While I'm definitely scarred from the experience, my stylish heart wants what it wants. So here are the looks.
