Cute ways to wear a turtleneck sweater this party season

 Emmy Rossum was on Chelsea last week, talking about empowerment, diversity, Trump and her fiancĂ© Sam Esmail, and if that wasn't enough, Emmy was slaying looking oh so stylish, wearing an outfit that would solve all your party dilemmas.
Surprisingly it involves a turtleneck sweater.
Turtlenecks are seriously underrated, not only the keep you snuggly, but they are seriously sexy.   At night go for a lurex one, like Emmy's.
But they are also perfect for off duty dressing.
Now for color, don't wear black, or any dark colors, it is to severe, too Steve Jobs. Choose a light palette, from ivory, to oatmeal to camel, that will enhance any skin color and create or accentuate curves. During the day pair them with jeans and boots, at night, as Emmy did, with cropped pants and heels.

The only coat & jacket you need (and they will never will go out of style)

Bridget Malcolm hair

I never understood buying a winter coat or jacket in August. Maybe, if you will go for that very trendy coat, but let's face it, the best ones are classic and cool and there are plenty of them around right now. December and January are good months to invest in a coat.
If where paying attention to the angels, going around Paris, before and after the Victoria Secret show, you would have seen plenty of great coats, big puffy ones, long flawy ones. But the favorite was of course the leather jacket, the eternal model off duty staple.
If you need something a little more warmer, drape yourself in another indestructible favorite, the navy coat. A big part of the French girls wardrobe. Military, mod, classic, sexy, you can style it how you want it, and it will get you everywhere and stand out and fit in at once.
I am wearing my blue peacock everywhere, and living in London now, it's such an easy choice.
Same for the perfecto, the name says it all. I included lots of vegan options, the Zara one is amazing and these days there really is no excuse, you can't tell the difference (they tend to be warmer!)
Scroll down for inspiration how to style it, and my favorite ones.

2. The Great ruffle tee/Becoming quite obsessed with their tees and sweaters.
3. Ace&Jig dress/perfect for weekends, and so cute with the booties.
