Fall Fashion Basics Feature: The Black Turtleneck

With the return of the 1970's fashion trends this fall, one of the most versatile pieces you can add to your wardrobe is a classic black turtleneck. It is truly a shirt that will never go out of style! Check out these fashion icons in their black turtleneck sweaters through the years.


Gorgeous, right? You might remember this post from a few years back on fashion basics... and the black turtleneck is definitely an indispensable fashion basic.

The problem that I have with my closet full of very basic pieces is that I never feel like I look very stylish and pulled together. The key to wearing basic pieces like a classic black turtleneck is to focus on building a great wardrobe of accessories! A scarf or jacket, a piece of beautiful jewelry, the right pair of shoes, even a bright red lipstick can make a huge difference in how you look - and feel - about yourself when you're wearing your basic pieces!

Update Your Look With One of These Hot Jewelry Trends

Searching for an easy way to bring new energy to your wardrobe without spending too much money? Look no further than a piece of hot-right-now jewelry, straight from the runways. Whether you’re looking for a bold item that will take a blah outfit to amazing, or a simple timeless selection that you can wear with anything, here are some ideas to get you started.

1. Tribal Wear

Tribal jewelry, especially pieces with beads, were huge on the runway this year. Some collections in particular looked to the 80s for inspiration. They also matched well with 70s looks, bringing the styles into a newer genre. Colorful beads seen on these accessories were fabulous additions to necklaces, earrings and even rings.

This time of year I get awfully tired of salads, pasta, and cold sandwiches for lunch. As soon as fall comes around here in Minnesota, I start thinking about soups, stews, melty sandwiches, hot rolls, and cozy long lunches.

Chanel's Creative Imperative Captures Spirit of the Age

Coco Chanel once said 
“Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.”
