The Paradoxical Summer Turtleneck

I am so obsessed with this shirt I got at Saks Off 5th. It’s high necked but has short sleeves and is more or less backless, and made out of this sort of silvery black material. Next time I need to get a few photos without the blazer (I snapped these running out the door to work) because it is just such a unique piece in my closet.

shirt: Laundry / pants: Zara / shoes: Primark / blazer: Calvin Klein via Value Village

I'm so with you - I don't get the summer turtleneck or the summer sweater, but they exist, so when we love them, we just try to make them work!

Ooh it's so fun!
I have a summer turtleneck as well, haha. Haven't worn it in a while though, maybe next week if it cools down a bit.

Ooooo this top is great, I bet the back looks awesome! I like pieces that can work more business appropriate and that are still fun!

I love turtlenecks and am always sad that I can't wear them in the summer. This top seems like proof that I just haven't been thinking creatively about turtlenecks all this time. I'm looking forward to seeing the back detailing, too.

These pieces can be really tricky to style, but I have to admit I'm drawn to 'em! I dig this one and see why you love it so much!
