A while ago, Angie showed me a visual of a shirt layered under a turtleneck. Today, in the spirit of my continuing quest to master this layering-with-shirttails showing thing, I decided to give it a try.
This is super comfy and could easily be a winter uniform for me. A couple of reasons:
The top is stretch silk (from Ann Taylor a few seasons ago). Very comfortable.
The sweater (which is charcoal, not black) is tailored but not at all tight. It is an old Lord and Taylor merino. When I bought it about 3 years ago, the fit seemed almost unfashionably boxy! How times change!!
The jeans are my favourite CoH Racer skinnies.
The booties are my Stuart Weitzman chelsea boots, love of my life. :)
Uncharacteristically, I decided to add a bit of shine in the form of my mother's old rhinestone necklace and another sparkly necklace, gift from a friend. It may be too much with the shirt collar, but I kind of like it.
Does this work? Proportions okay? Is it JCE (just current enough)?
ETA: the sweater is a turtleneck. I have pulled the collar out a bit over the top so the "wings" of it show. And the necklaces are layered.
