What's Trending Now: Cropped Turtlenecks {Look for Less Edition}

What"s Trending Now: Look for Less Edition

Save Item: ASOS $14 / Splurge Item: American Apparel $30

Sleeveless turtlenecks in the 90's were like the shoulder pads of the 80's, everyone was doing it and no one was quite sure why. Are you trying to keep from catching a cold or are you trying to hide a hickey from your parents a la Full House? What ever the case apparently the 90's are back... and I'm loving it! All jokes aside I love this trend and can't wait till mine arrives in the mail. I bought a regular plain old sheer turtle neck from Express last year to wear to work in the winter and to my surprise, I ended up wearing it more than I anticipated. Since the summer I've been on the hunt for a cropped sleeveless variety but couldn't find one anywhere until I finally tracked one down at American Apparel. I liked the look of it but not the price so I held off on buying it. Naturally, I was super pumped when I stumbled upon this one at ASOS yesterday during their Cyber Monday Sale, for less than half the price of the American Apparel one.

  4. I guess everything comes back! I think they would be great under a blazer. Sometimes I get too hot in long sleeves and jackets so it would be perfect for me.

  5. I think those cropped turtleneck are perfect for girls with a slim shoulder, it will problably won't look good on me as my shoulder is wide and fat. But,whatever,I love the trend.

  6. Sena I totally know what you mean but I think you should still rock the trend if you like it! My arms are kinda big for my petite frame but I still definitely rock tons of sleeveless shirts lol. Just pair it with a blazer and you'll be good to go!

  7. Totally read my mind Amy, I love this look with a blazer and high rise pants.
