Currently Craving: Crewnecks

Move aside v-necks, this season it’s all about the crewneck. Crewneck sweaters that is… I’ve always loved this classic cut sweater because of its versatility. By definition, a crewneck must have a plain rounded, “collarless neckline.” They can be worn with jeans for a relaxed, laidback look, paired with a sparkly bib necklace for an understated take on glam or layered over an oxford for a preppy, uptown vibe. Regardless of how you wear them, crewnecks are a must-have style staple in my book.

I actually designed a few variations for my Paper Crown line as well as my LC Lauren Conrad collection for Kohl’s. Here are a few outfit ideas I put together around my favorite crewnecks:

Alice + Olivia Louise Pleat Skirt, Kate Spade Meadowsweet Bib Necklace, LC Lauren Conrad Pointelle Sweater


Paper Crown Pisarro Lace Shorts, A.P.C. Striped Merino Sweater, Max & Chloe Bellissima Necklace, Candela Wedge Booties


LC Lauren Conrad Crochet Sweater, Topshop Moto Skinny Jeans, Michael Kors Jet Set Watch, H&M Ballet Flats

What are your thoughts on the crewneck trend? Do or don’t?

    I like crew necks on a shirt to shirt basis only, lol. I have a very ample chest, so V-neck & scoop shirts work the best for my shape… but I love all these styles!

  • PavlynGirls

    We love all three looks so much! A crewneck is a classic, we couldn’t agree more – it should be a staple in every girl’s closet. Funny, becuase we actually did a post on Audrey Hepbrun a few weeks back and a crewneck was totally a staple in her style. Check out our post.

  • Alexandra Dadisman

    I love crew necks! While I’m not necessarily someone that cares a lot about necklines in particular, most of my shirts are crew necks and V-necks now that I think about it…
