black turtleneckWe don't know about you, but for us, money is a little tight these days. And there are plenty of places we're willing to cut back -- we're going out to fancy dinners a little less, and we're not buying every new trend that comes along. However, we want to continue building our wardrobe, even if it is happening a little more slowly. And to do that, we need to invest in classic pieces.

This week, we're taking a look at the black turtleneck. It's been a wardrobe staple for centuries, but became iconic when Audrey Hepburn put it on and the fashion world fell in love.
