Turtle Neck

by

A while back I was participating in a twitter chat and we were discussing about fashion items that we absolutely dislike. A lot of the participants shared that a turtle neck is something they hate the most. Of course the discussion was all about one’s personal likes and dislikes and nobody meant any offence to anyone. But I was still a bit surprised because turtle neck has always been one of my most sought after fashion items. I have at least 10 turtle neck tops and sweaters, mostly in black and other classic colors and I love wearing them when the weather gets chilly.

Needless to say I would have worn turtle necks anyways this season as well, but much to my delight they came back as a key fashion trend this winter! Cheers to that!

A not-so-great news is that, as soon as turtle necks came back in fashion, the prices of these basic fashion pieces shot up like hell! Though I have quite a few pieces of turtle neck tops still lying in my wardrobe, I wanted a few new ones.

My collaboration with Zaful came in at the right time and I selected this lovely black turtle neck top from their exciting collection of clothes and accessories.

The fabric is perfect for chilly winter days and I love the length of the top too. It can double up as a tunic too. So, in a way I did get it for free but as I mentioned earlier, I would have bought one anyways.

I created pretty much an all black look except for the embroidered silk scarf and the golden belt. All black works wonders in winter and of course looks classy as well. The silk scarf is made out of tussar silk and is a handicraft item.

I support local artisans and often buy hand made fashion products because I can totally realize the time and effort that goes in creating such beautiful pieces of craft!

We were quite lucky to find a beautiful location for the photo shoot about 20 km from the city. We had gone out on a family picnic and we spotted this location first thing. It feels great to find the right backdrop matching an outfit because location hunting has been one of our biggest struggles after arriving in Guwahati. It was definitely a perfect end to a perfect outing.

Happy Friday!

    I like the contrast of the turtle neck with the cropped trousers!
