Many things can make a sweater stand out. One of them is color. Today I’m sharing a fabulous teal sweater I just picked up. That’s really quite stunning, not just because of how it looks on me, but how it looks on everyone!
Did you know that Teal is one of the four most universally flattering clothing colors? This deep blue-green shade highlights all skin tones and brings out a pretty pink flush in the cheeks.
Teal pairs well with neutrals, dark brown, wine, plum, burgundy, gray and black. It’s also an excellent transitional color to wear as you move from season to season.
This elegant teal turtleneck is from @bananarepublic, one of my favorite places to shop because they always carry so many colorful things. It’s easy to get stuck in a black rut as we age. The right colors, like teal, can do wonders to make you look more modern and youthful.
This cute teal sweater also has a few other great things going for it. It’s fairly thin and lightweight (a little heavier than a t-shirt). It’s also very soft, comfy, and stretchy.
I’d say it feels not too tight but not too loose. It’s fitted at the chest and falls straight down, so you can wear it out or tuck it in.
What I really like is that it’s thin enough to be a great layering piece, even when worn under a puffy winter coat.
Not only is my teal sweater really soft and fluid, but the neckline is very comfy and flattering too! Cowl necks like this are more stylish at the moment than high, close-fitting turtlenecks.
I find loose neck turtlenecks more flattering too for mature women because of our aging necks. This type of neckline is soft, and it frames your face. You don’t get that tight “turkey neck look” with skin hanging over that many women complain about.
I styled my sweater with my favorite burgundy puffer jacket and burgundy suede boots for a festive December look. I love the high contrast mix of teal and burgundy. It’s energetic and upbeat.
This sweater also comes in 6 other gorgeous shades!
