Having basic essentials like this turtleneck provides me with multiple outfits for the Fall and helps with layering. This outfit is a great example of how we can toughen up a 9-5 basic outfit. Imagine how boring this look would be without this vest. For a minimalist fine, but if you are like me, some days you want your personality/mood to show even through your 9-5 outfit.
This is especially important on those days when you don't want to get out of bed, never mind go into work. I learned a long time ago that we have to dress how we wish we felt and not always how we feel at the moment. keep this in mind before you get dress when you have to go to work or anywhere for that matter.
