They’re classic and feminine, and are super warm so they make great substitutes for scarves. Turtlenecks are also a huge trend item at the moment, and have been for a few seasons (part and parcel of the whole 70s trend). I’m still not sure if something this simple and cozy could really be a trend item, but who even cares because it looks great on everybody and goes with everything.

Some of these riches can be seen here, taken from a few of my favourite places to visit to find inspiration in my daily life. One thing I love about street style is that it gives us the opportunity to see how people clothe themselves beyond our immediate environment. The differences are cultural, class-based, and also related to climate. (I don’t need to explain how the moderately-incomed folks find inspiration/aspiration from expensively-dressed industry people, shot outside of shows during fashion week.) Seeing how Kaitlyn Ham from Modern Legacy is dressing herself these days in Australia is especially a welcome change. I am legit so sick and tired of layers and hats and scarves already and it’s not even January.
