Styling Gigi Four Ways
Wherever you call home, I think it is safe to say the weather has certainly been temperamental recently. In fact, the devastation of Texas, the late onset tundras experienced across the U.S. and the onslaught of theatrical storms that have plagued the globe are nothing short of a plea for help to ACT NOW. It’s easy to dismiss what we wear on a daily basis as negligible to its impact on minimizing greenhouse gas emissions. And while we will not go so far as to call ourselves superheroes in the realm of climate activism, there is something to be said for making mindful choices about getting dressed in the morning. According to the Smithsonian, the average t-shirt uses up to 120 liters of water and emits .01 kg of carbon dioxide per wear. With this information in mind, I challenged myself to rewear the same turtleneck four different ways (because Friday’s I always stay in my pajamas) to practice what we at Cerer preach. Without further ado, the Gigi Top ~four ways~
- I have really been leaning into pattern play recently. The older I get, the less I adhere to fashion’s “rules”. Pair your Gigi Top with any fun printed mini skirt and throw a belt over it for an elevated level of composure.
Pairing a low cut top over a turtleneck is one of my favorite easy outfit hacks. It adds depth to the layered top and practicality for less than optimal temperatures. The (faux) leather pants offer an edgier take on the turtleneck and could stand alone without the added sweater.
Styling the Gigi four different ways made me forget the easiest look of them all: stand alone! The Gigi is the finest turtleneck I have yet to encounter: it hugs in just the right amount of places and allows breathing room at the neck. Its ribbing detail is so spot-on it almost looks 3-D. Throwing a leather jacket over with my Tommy high-rise jeans is the quintessential Cerer approved outfit.
I couldn’t do a turtleneck roundup without the classic under a dress/jumpsuit. The volume on the jumpsuit offers a chic contrast to the hug of the under layer. While billowing pieces are a statement, there is certainly something to be said for complimenting the Gigi with a bodycon dress and tights.
