I’ve said it countless times before and I’ll continue to say it: a simple black turtleneck is one of the best items to have in your wardrobe. Wonderfully versatile and universally flattering, it can easily be dressed up or down. Layered under sleeveless tops and dresses, it’s also a great item for getting extra wear out of your favourite summer pieces. I typically end up picking up at least one new black turtleneck a season, from thin cotton to heavier knit pieces, I have one for almost any time of year or sartorial situation. This season, I picked up an absolutely perfect one from the Montreal based luxury knitwear brand ça va de soi. Done in the softest premium wool, it fits and feels like a total dream. Just slouchy enough, I love how it also flatters my curves beautifully.
And on the topic of ça va de soi, if you’re not familiar with this incredible brand, you really should be. An amazing family run line, they produce the most luxurious knitwear using only premium materials. Beautifully designed, their pieces are investments that will stand the test of time and trends. Consider this a teaser on this special line – I’ll be sharing even more on them soon!
