Move Over Button-Downs, the Turtleneck Is Your Suit’s New Sexy BFF

Queer style influencers Kim Geronimo (@thestreetsensei) and Ali Medina (@alimedina_3) teamed up with photographer Iqra Shahbaz (@MilesFrom) to breathe some new life into your suit game with the turtleneck. Sexy, sleek, and outside of the “button-down box,” the turtleneck is a wardrobe staple gives your suit swag a je ne sais quoi that will have all eyes you when everyone else is in a button-down.

Ali: Tailory suit.
Kim: Blazer is from Zara; pants and my oxfords from Berskha; turtleneck from Uniqlo.

Note from photographer: “I may not fully experience the struggles that the LGBQT community faces everyday but as a minority I understand what it feels like to be an outsider, like you don’t belong in a world that can sometimes have very rigid rules about what you can do and what you can’t do. Having friends like Kim and Ali [who] can work a suit better than the boys are a reminder that you and you alone get to create and choose what rules dictate your identity, and your life. We made this series in an effort to encourage others to go against the grain in the pursuit of defining their identity. That you can wear whatever you want and be whoever you want to be even if you don’t see anyone else doing it.” – Iqra Shahbaz
