Family photos! The very first thought that went through my mind after I scheduled our shoot was, of course, “what are we all going to wear?”

This was followed by, “I will need to buy us all new outfits.” It is so ingrained in me that these type of events require fresh, new clothes. Or at least, it was. Although this is the initial thought that goes through my mind, I’m snapping out of the habits of actually going out and buying the new items.

I was thrilled to see that my pals at Tradlands had released the Monty Turtleneck within their FW19 lineup and in a perfectly striped cotton no less. This piece was an instant hit in my closet and I wanted to share some thoughts on why this contemporary take on a classic is unique along with some ideas on how to wear it.
