One of the things I’m most proud of this year is that I founded a female entrepreneur group in my area. We meet monthly to network and find ways to support each other. I highlighted one of those women last week in my Shop Small post, and I’m excited to be highlighting another one today! The idea of local women supporting each other makes my heart burst, and I feel so lucky to have made so many entrepreneurial friends in my ‘hood.
One of these friends is Lauren, who along with her mom and sister, created Dudley Stephens in 2015 to solve their problem of always wanting to wear fleece for warmth but never looking chic in it. Whether it was for on the slopes or in a boat, they knew there had to be something better out there. There wasn’t, so they made it themselves! The women reimagined fleece in a super cool way, creating their signature piece, the turtleneck tunic, along with capes and even dresses more recently.
When I first saw her site, I couldn’t fully tell how much I’d love the product, but since I’ve picked up this turtleneck, a blazer, and a cape that I wear all the time, I’m now a tried and true fan. Because I work from home, I pretty much live in my black turtleneck because it’s warm and comfy, but if I need to go run an errand, it doesn’t look sloppy like most of my sweatshirts. Oh also? It has pockets.
Lauren and I teamed up today for a fun giveaway! We’re giving away two of these tops: One for you and one for you to give as a holiday gift. Comment below with what color you would want, who you would give the gift to, and why. We’ll pick a winner tomorrow. Good luck!
In other news, last week I finally taught myself how to curl my own hair. Since it’s been short, I have been at a total loss on how to style it myself but after watching this video (even though she has long hair), I’ve become a a pro. I have this wand and love it. Fun fact: I’ve always been awful at doing my own hair, so one of my goals for 2017 is to step up my beauty/hair game. I’m going to do a full tutorial on how I get this look, with tips especially for people with shorter hair soon. Stay tuned!
*Note: Giveaway is now closed. Thank you to everyone who entered, and congrats to Katie D who was chosen as the winner using random.org.

Oooooohhhhh…chic fleece, what a great concept! You look great in the turtleneck tunic, as you do in everything you wear. I would gift one to my sister. She is always cold and often throws on her husband’s fleece when she is not going anywhere! She would love this and so would I in black.
This looks so comfy! Would love a navy or grey one, because #neutrals. Looks like the perfect cozy outfit at home or to run errands! Would love to gift one to my sister in law, after a trying year of fertility struggles yet keeping her head held high while teaching she totally deserves it!
Such a great concept! I’d do the red for me and the marine blue for my mom. I’m basically her mini me and we always end up with the same clothes even when we shop separately.
These look so chic and warm! I’d gift one to my mom, who just realized her dream of living on a small horse farm, so she’s always running in and out of the house to the barn. We would both love the grey or the blue!
Looks so warm and comfortable! I would definitely get the red since it is such a perfect color for the holidays. My grandma would love this! She is always cold, what grandma isn’t?! I feel like this would do the trick. And she would look so cute in it!

I’d absolutely go with the marine blue–it’s beautiful and goes with so much of my wardrobe! I’d give one to my roommate and best friend as we always “borrow” each other’s clothes.
Black! It’s so classic!
I would give the turtleneck to my mother. She lives in NYC and doesn’t drive, which means she is usually walking to and from the grocery store in the winter. This would be a great layer to keep her warm. As a New Yorker, she pretty much only wears black, so I would have to go with that!
Love this look! I would choose the classic black. My favorite thing about this sweater is that you could wear it anywhere. I’d gift the other one to my mom- She’s traveling to Chicago to stay with me over Christmas, and we’d love to #twin in this cozy sweater as we walk my dog Ronan around Lincoln Park!
This fleece looks amazing! Props to Lauren for finding such a great niche market- I’m sold already.
I would start with one in black and probably collect several more in other neutral colors, and I would love to give one in black to my mom! She’s always cold and looking for something cozy to wear, and this looks perfect!
I would definitely go with the black! You can never go wrong with the color- it’s classic and super versatile for creating different looks depending on your day. I would give it to my best friend who shares my appreciation for cozy/chic/black pieces. She has had an exceptionally tough time adjusting to new circumstances these past few months, so I know something like this would brighten her life just enough.
Black. I would give this to my sister. She has four kids under the age of 9 (getting a daily shower and getting dressed are a struggle) and lives in the freezing city of Sioux Falls where the snow doesn’t melt until spring. Super cute hair!
Beautiful turtlenecks! I would give one to my mother as she is suffering from osteoporosis so it would definately keep her warm as she really feels the cold now. She would probably love grey!! I would go with the black.
This tunic looks soooooo cozy! I would definitely go with the black.. it’s classic and could be worn so many different ways. I would gift mine to my childhood best friend who is currently pregnant with her first little babe! She is going to need lots of cozy clothes that are versatile!!
Can’t wait for the tutorial. I’ve been trying to do this myself and I have such a hard time with one side of my head! Plus I burn myself a lot! I finally got a wave iron, but only slightly less pathetic using it. It’s supposed to be a beachy, care-free look, but of course it takes so much effort to look like you didn’t try!
I love this cozy chic fleece tunic! It is exactly what my closet is missing!! I’m drawn to the black, but I’ve been trying to step out of my comfort zone with color. I would choose the marine blue for myself and the periwinkle for my aunt. She is like a mother to me and has always been very supportive and loving. With four children of her own she never treats herself, so having a warm stylish tunic for the winter months would just make her holiday season!
Love your hair!
I love that cozy turtle neck! I would love to wear the black one!
I’m always struggling between being stylish versus being warm! I like the marine blue. I would give one to my mom. She’s having surgery next week and will be recovering through the holiday season. This top would keep her comfortable, cozy, and dressed up at the same time! Well done ladies!
im so excited for the hair tutorial – im not the best at hair or makeup so would love those posts!!!
I love the heather grey (although black is always tempting). I’d give the second one to my best friend. I had to move away for work three years ago and really miss her.
Wow, the turtleneck tunic looks amazing– comfy and stylish! I would wear the black on myself and also love to gift it to a good friend of mine from high school. We reconnected in the last year and she just welcomed a baby boy yesterday. It would be perfect for a stylish mom outfit and make her feel a little bit pampered 🙂
Grey for my mom- who works in an school that is always freezing!!! And navy for myself to keep cozy in at my 200 year old house!!! So cute!! Love these
Definitely the black for me, to go with everything! And the blue for my sister, who is ALWAYS freezing & currently updating her wardrobe for her first pregnancy. I think in a size up she could wear this most of the way through!
Such a great idea! I would get the black- a classic color & silhouette would be the perfect addition to my closet.
I would definitely go with the black! I would give the other one to my mom. She does so much for everyone in our family and is constantly running around doing stuff for her mother and my dads mother. She deserves a treat!
I would go for the blush and the black. One would be gifted to my mother who has bursitis and is not just always cold, but her shoulder aches, which makes outdoor activities rough and not enjoyable. She would love something flattering and cozy; typically she layers up and has given up caring what shape that takes. While I bet she’d prefer the black, like all things, we would be switching back and forth and stealing from each other.
Love this! I would want to wear the red or black one (timeless) and then give the pink to my mom. She doesn’t buy a lot of things for herself and I would love to treat her to something warm, pretty and functional!
Love the chic fleece turtleneck. Periwinkle is my color!
I would love the black or the red one! My sister would look amazing in the white! My baby sister just graduated so you doesn’t have the means to treat herself right now with her entry level job and it would be nice to give her something warm to wear to work on cold days!
I love this. I would want black and gift maybe a red or grey one to my mom. She works in a office which is in an older building full of character but drafty and is always looking for stylish ways to stay warm throughout the winter.
I would love the fleece turtleneck in black! So versatile and cozy for many snowy New England days to come. I would love to share one with my expecting sister.
Cobble Hill is my Brooklyn hood!
It would be perfect in heather or black for my cousin, a new Mama, to wear with her baby on neighborhood walks!
I would go with double black! My mother and I always buy the same clothes on accident so it would be a funny present, we would totally end up wearing them together all the time on accident!
Ah I love the idea chic warm clothing!!! I would wear the black one a ton walking across my campus, and I know my best friend would look beautiful in the periwinkle! Thank you so much for introducing me to this company!
I would love the heather grey top! I would gift the black to my mom, she is getting ready to retire and I could see this being her go to piece in the winter.
So pretty 🙂 I would give the periwinkle to my mom. We live in New England, where my mother is a special Ed teacher who’s passion is integrating special Ed students into local college classrooms. This means taking students on daily trips to these colleges and walking across the cold campuses. She has been doing this for 30 years and would absolutely love this warm addition to her closet! I would get the black for myself 🙂
Both black for sure–so chic. I’d gift it to my Mom who has tirelessly been taking care of my grandma on hospice and my grandfather with Alzheimers. She deserves to be extra cozy this winter because she gives so much of herself!
What a great giveaway! I would love to win the black because it’s classic and chic (without any extra effort- total bonus). I’d definitely give my mother the second one because she LOVES a tunic length top. It’s great for her body type and her personal style, which is sophisticated but not too much.
I absolutely love this sweater! The neutral blush would be perfect to pair with jeans while exploring the city on a cold day or to dress up with leggings and booties for a winter work outfit! I would choose this color for my mom because she’s always looking for flexible pieces to be able to wear while teaching and going out to various activities on the weekend!

After your post last week about shopping small I decided to swing by a little ma’ and pop general store to grab a thank you card instead of a chain drug-store. It definitely paid off! The recipient loved the card and i loved getting it for her 🙂
I would love the heather grey!
pink for me and my sister!
I love the orange and I think my daughter would live in this if she had one!
I love the tunic. It would be the perfect addition to my weekend wardrobe especially at this time of the year. I would probably go for the red or even the orange. A nice pop of color to change from my neutral work wardrobe. As for the person I would give, it would have to be my sister in law who is battling cancer and who has yet to lose her sassiness! Thank you for your posts which I look forward to every morning.
I would absolutely love the black turtleneck, and I would have to gift the red one to my mom! We are both always cold, and often times end up going out of the house looking like the michelin man with too many layers on, or we end up being cold in order to remain “cute”. These turtlenecks would be the absolute best present! Thank you for bringing attention to small business owners – I love it !
I’d love the red for a pop of color on CT winter days. And I’d give the marine blue to my sister-in-law, who chases after three-year-old twin boys and is all about chic comfort.
Chic warm winter apparel is a much needed addition to womenswear! Thank you SO much for introducing us to this lovely brand. I would choose black for my mother and I, it’s classic and adaptable.
Congratulations, Katie. You won! Shoot me an email to claim your prize 🙂 firstname.lastname@example.org
What a cute turtleneck! I’d like the black turtleneck for myself and the periwinkle turtleneck would be perfect for my mom who’s retiring after 30 years of teaching!
Would love the black turtleneck. Would gift it to my daughter. She’s a student at Madison and will be walking everywhere in the cold Wisconsin winters!
I’ve been wanting this fleece forever! It looks super cute and comfortable. I love the black fleece. I would gift this to my sister because she just found out she is expecting her third child and this would be a great option for her to wear daily.
I love the marine blue turtleneck for myself, and would gift the grey to my mom. She is always cold! These are such a stylish way to stay warm and cozy in the coming months!
Hi Julia, since I’m always so cold and in and out with the kiddies a nice fleece turtle neck would come down very well. I would love one in red and one in grey. Thank you! Julie
I work from home a few days a week to cut down on a horribly long commute. I usually throw on a sweatshirt to drop my daughter off at daycare and look like THAT Mom embarrassingly too often. The black fleece turtleneck looks like it will solve my problems… although now I’ll be that Mom that wears the same cute turtleneck everyday! I’d gift the other to a Mom friend in the same boat.
I love this! I would gift the periwinkle to my mom. She has light blue eyes so this would look amazing on her. She has been dying to ski out west since she was a kid, and we finally booked our flights for our first big family vacation to ski Colorado. She cried when we booked the flights (she is SO excited) and we are going to Aspen which she has been dreaming about going to her whole life. She is even already planning her fur outfits and I know she would absolutely die for this and the chance to wear it on our Colorado trip!
Hi Julia, I’d love the marine blue for myself and I think my girlfriend would just love the natural blush one since she never buys things for herself and always thinks of her little girls needs first! Thanks for sharing, these turtlenecks are awesome!!
Morning! I exercise in the evenings, after work, and the periwinkle turtleneck looks like the most perfect thing to throw on post-work out with leggings and cute tennis shoes while I run errands or meet my boyfriend for a casual weeknight taco dinner (which is obviously a weekly occurrence). My sister, who is notoriously cold, all day, every day, would love the black fleece! Happy hump day from Atlanta!
I absolutely adore the overall look of these tops! It seems Dudley Stephens has certainly made turtlenecks cool again! I would choose the red because it’s slightly out of my comfort zone but beautiful enough to make a statement, plus, it feels so festive. I’d gift my other turtleneck to my sister-in-law in Ireland as the weather is always unpredictable and cozy apparel is necessary. She’d love that the brand is from CT (where we live!) and would think of us when she wears it!
I would love one for me and one for my sister, so we could match! Also because my sister is obsessed with pineapples and the dudley stephens logo is too cute!
Oh I forgot to say which color! I think Marine Blue and Black. We could decide (or fight) later who gets which one 😉
It’s hard to pick just one, but I think I’d go with white for myself. I’d have to gift the other to my mother because she is always freezing (despite living in the south!) andwould love the look of the turtleneck.
So so so cute! Love your outfit! My mom is going to die when I tell her about these! I would love a black one and she would look so beautiful in the red! She is such an active lady (who loves fleece and being warm), and she always complains about how she isn’t stylish and asks for fashion advice. It would be so fun to give her one of these!!

I love the shape of the neck on this and the pockets! I’m pregnant and constantly on the lookout for cozy and comfy clothes for the winter. I know my sis would love it to. I would get us both the black!
I’d love the orange for me and to gift the black to my aunt. I love a good turtleneck!
This is so tough to choose becausr the colors are all so beautiful – how to choose just one? Periwinkle is beautiful, but I’m a navy girl always!
Hi! How sweet of you both to do this giveaway! I would gift the black one to my good friend Evanee. We both are all about be practical and fashionable at the same time! Evanee is currently a dental hygienist but is working to be a dentist. She works so hard between regular work, school and home it would be amazing to gift her with something special! We became friends later in life, I grew up with her now husband, that she met at my husbands bachelor party hehe! I’ve never met someone so much like myself and I really cherish our friendship 🙂 With that we love to “twin” every once-in-awhile and wouldn’t this just be perfect!!!
I love these tops! I am a first time new mom who is struggling to find clothes that are comfortable but look good. Looks like these would be great for baby Benjamin to snuggle up to as well! I would give one to my mom so we could do our Black Friday and all shopping trips together in the black one.
I would love the chic black color to go with just about anything and dress up or down. I would give one to my best friend from college who just had a baby. She could use some TLC in the form of soft chic clothes that could still hid the post-baby body (she looks great, but I’m sure she would appreciate the fit!! :))
Wow!!! That periwinkle top is my fave!!! SO CUTE! I would definately get that one for me and then my little sis deserves the black one. IT would definitely step up her errands game 🙂 I really hope I win this!
I looked at all the colors and they’re all great but I’d pick a black one for myself! It’d be perfect to wear at work or home 🙂 and I’d love a black one for my mom so we could match! Also how cute is the pineapple inspired emblem? Love it!
Ah i love this so much and think I need to order a few for the women in my family this christmas – thank you for introducing me to the brand! I would definitely go with black!
The black would be such an amazing staple to add to my winter wardrobe! My mom would also live in this!!
These are so cute! I love the natural blush and the marine blue so much! I would definitely give one to my mom!
Love this post! It’s so great to support local businesses and female entrepreneurs!
Loving your hair in this post too!
I would love the pink one- favorite color. I’d also give one to my mom. She loves cozy things but hates looking frumpy so this would fit the bill!
I struggle with doing my own hair too â€” sometimes I feel like it totally works, and others not at all! Hahah. Love this turtleneck, I really adore the heather gray!

This is a perfect cost winter top for my friend Mary who is finishing up her brest cancer treatment. Single mother. Hard times. Black, gray, or pink. They are beautiful!
Thank you Lauren and team for creating this! I have been searching for a sweater that is cozy yet functional and sleek for more years than I am proud to admit! This would be a perfect addition to my work wardrobe, in black, as I travel around to different states with very different climates and I would love to share this with my girlfriend who has a passion for cozy, comfy, and functional as well who would love the black option for work/travel!
I have been eyeing the turtleneck tunic for awhile and have it on my Christmas wish list. I would love to surprise my sister with one as well. My favorite color is red and my sister looks beautiful in blue.
I absolutely love the black and the grey!! I would gift one of these to one of my best friends, Jiye, who is always rocking fierce turtlenecks but is also always cold so this would be a dream for her!
I would love the natural blush! I would gift one to my best friend Fiama <3
I would love the black so I could dress it up or down- being a new mom of 2 months comfort is key!! I would gift one to my mom so we could spend the day together running around town all chic and cozy! 🙂
I am digging the heather gray, I always turn to gray when I want to feel super cozy! I would gift one to my mom, who always finds it hard to stay warm in these Midwestern winters!
So cute! I would go with gray or black and gift one to my friend Mackenzie who always masters cozy chic! Love your hair curly!
I would the black one since could match it with everything and you can never go wrong with black clothes! I would give the second one to my Mom who is always cold, but looking for cuter ways to stay warm : )
Navy or nothing! xox
I found DS on Instagram and the blazer and turtleneck are on my Xmas list. I would l love the black or orange and I would give my mom the black. We both are huge cozy fans. We live in Portland, Or and would love to share the brand with our friends. Thank you!
Such a tough decision! The red (tis the season) or the marine blue!
I love the pink one! It is so feminine and pretty. My daughter is celebrating her “Sweet 16” next week and it would look great on her!
What a great design idea! Perfect cut and warmth for northeast winters. I would go with black. I would gift one to my sister who lives in London and is always looking for these type of pieces for her wardrobe. Many thanks!
Marine Blue, for my sister.
I honestly don’t need one. But, boy are these beautiful, especially in black! Love the idea of a family business, especially sisters! So, I can’t think of two more deserving women than two of my three sisters! One is a hard working mom of three BUSY boys, she doesn’t have a lot of help and she makes motherhood look effortless. Though she doesn’t give a lot of attention to herself, I would love to gift her this cozy, comfy, chic tunic. The other would go to my equally busy super sister who also is extremely hard working and the most selfless person I have ever met; her husband was recently diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease and she is fiercely protective of his heart and continuing to give him life and love no matter what. Happy Holidays!
I love the Marine Blue one! I think my mom (Christmas present 🙂 ) would be obsessed with this piece–I’d get black for her though.
Periwinkle for my 80 year old Aunt who is super stylish and always cold despite growing up outside Philadelphia and now living in San Diego! It will be perfect for her when it is under 60 degrees. The periwinkle would make her blue eyes pop. I am always partical to navy and that marine blue is gorgeous. What a great line! Thank you for supporting it and sharing.
The black for my Mom.
Super cute! love your hair too! I would probably get a black one too, because helloo- goes with everything! Love how you styled yours here! I would probably give the second one to my neighbor and walking partner. She’s currently pregnant and I know she’d love to cozy up in this!
I love the black one, it can go with anything! I have a new baby and my sister has a little one as well. I’d love to give her one to make sure us new moms stay warm, while looking cute, and even better, we could be matchers 🙂
Heather grey and I’d give the other one to my mom.
I love this top! I’m always looking for something warm, but fashionable at the same time. If I could choose a color, I would probably go for black or blush…and I would share with my sister, because we have the same style, and I know she would love it!
I’d love the natural blush color and the black color would be a classic to gift to my mom who could use an update to her usual fleece go to on weekends- as you said this is a much chicer option! Thanks for sharing!
I would want black, and I would get my mom one too!
Natural Blush for me and my Mother-In-Law! She is such a strong, powerful woman whom I look up to everyday. In the past year-and-a-half, she’s had her leg amputated and her shoulder replaced as a result of a bad car accident. Despite her setbacks, she still does everything and anything she can for her family (including moving from MI to CT full-time to babysit for her granddaughter!). She never shops for herself and would look so chic in this tunic style. She would also love that it covers her bum!
Red and i’d give the other to my bff who just had a baby and could use a cozy present for her! I’d love to hear more about the entrepreneurship group, I know someone who owns a few Pure Barre studios in the area who might be interested.
Looking cute while staying warm? I’m in! I love the Heather Grey color and I would gift one to my mom. We’re both in Michigan and these would be perfect for our cold winters!
Natural blush for myself and my older sister. My sister is a TV news producer in a cold part of the country so she’d love this! She hardly gets holidays off because the news never stops and giving her s9mething cozy is nice reminder that we may not be together for the holidays but I’m always thinking of her!
black for me and my sister-I live in New York and am ALWAYS FREEZING and my sister is too!! Her birthday is next week and I’m always on the hunt for a good gift for her! Now maybe we won’t freeze together!
I would love one of these! I’d love red for myself and I’d gift a pink one to my sister. She just had her second child a month ago and treats herself to very little these days! I’d love for her to have something cozy for when she’s home with the baby, but can easily head out of the house to run errands, etc.!
Love your hair! Can’t wait for the tutorial! I would choose black for myself and periwinkle for a friend. Love the idea that you have started a women’s entrepreneur group! I have wanted to start my own business as well! Thanks!
Fleece is absolutely the best, and I love how these turtlenecks are so stylish! I would get a grey for myself and the black for my mom. We both are cold ALL THE TIME, and her house is especially drafty in the winter. These would be perfect to keep us warm and cozy 🙂
LOVE these! I’d pick Natural Blush for me and Periwinkle for my sis…she works at an elementary school and this would be perfect for staying cozy at recess but still looking put together. Plus, we wear the same size and could share!!
Love these turtleneck tunics! I would choose grey for myself and black for my momma. Together, we are running a 20 mile race for charity in a couple of weeks, and this would be the perfect thing to throw on after the race to still look stylish while staying warm!
Have had my eye on these all fall! Natural Blush for me and Navy for my super-stylish sister-in-law in St. Louis, MO to help spread the DS love west of the Mississippi!
love the hair!! and i would pick that beautiful pink color!! it would look great with jeans, leggings, EVERYTHING! 🙂
I would pick red, my favorite color, for me and for my sister who is always freezing.
I have always wanted one of these!! I would pick black and give one to my best friend who’d love it too!
I’d pick black and give one to my mom so we could match 🙂
I would pick black for my sister and I. We are both moms who do everything for our children and don’t always treat ourselves!!!
I would go black for myself and red for my mom – she’s more stylish than I am! Living in CO, this is perfect to throw on, stay warm and still look good. (love the curls!)
I love it in black (pockets!!). I’d gift a matching one to my sister, who shares my sensitivity to the cold. 🙂
I would definitely go with black. I’d give the gifted one to my sister because she is always cold and would love a chic fleece sweater like this!
Black for me and a bright color for my daughter…just the way we we roll!
Black or marine blue for sure. I’d give the other one to my mom, who loves a fleece and that would look great on her when shes teaching in NYC
Love the Marine Blue and I would gift it to my mom!
These look sooo comfy!! I would love the natural color and for my mom the marine blue! My mom recently started watching my baby as my maternity leave ended and this would be a great Holiday thank you even though I really can’t ever repay her for her generosity, love and support. But I know she would love this!
I would want the Natural Blush color, because it is so chic and sophisticated. I would give one to be cousin Maddie, because she taught me to embrace the versatility of a turtleneck, when it comes to fashion.
I would love the black one. I love your look with white jeans and boots. I would give one to my daughter Marissa.. She is doing a residency at Vanderbilt and needs some down time to relax and what better way then to cuddle up in a periwinkle super soft turtleneck…
Love so much what you’re doing with female entrepreneurship. There is so much power, strength, and love in collaboration among women.
I have major plans for styling that black one on casual Fridays– I work at Nordstrom corporate headquarters, so we blend the chic fashion world with the comfy outdoorsy Seattle vibe like pros! My mom just moved from the Midwest to New York City, so she needs more black in her wardrobe to blend in, too 🙂 I miss her every day, and would love to send her a cozy fleece hug.
Oh my gosh I love women supporting women, this giveaway and you teaming up rocks. I would love a black or grey one, and i think my mom would also love this. We are constantly cold and this would be the perfect little fashionable, give back to small businesses, comfy gift!!! XO
Marine Blue for me, and Heather Grey for my cousin – a professional who travels frequently to chilly, stylish locales – but secretly prefers athleaisure attire when she can sneak it in. This is totally in her style wheelhouse. She’d love it (as would I)!
I would definitely want the orange and periwinkle. Orange for me and periwinkle for my mom. From last October until May she underwent therapy for breast cancer and is now healthy and on the mend. I’d love to see her with this chic turtleneck for the winter. Thank you!
I love this post! For the holidays this year, my goal is to shop small for all gifts- I’m thinking about ways that I can support social causes, women entrepreneurs, and small businesses. I love the black fleece turtleneck! I can definitely see myself wearing it multiple times a week throughout the winter 🙂 I’d gift the second fleece to my mom! She loves cozy, stylish, classic pieces and I know we’d both embrace the #twinning look!
I love the black, would give the other to my sister!! SO chic! Love it!
Love that is has pockets! Pockets are the best 🙂 I love the marine blue, and I would give one to my mom since she is always cold.
I love this so much. I think I’d stick to black, though the periwinkle is also fantastic. As someone who finds wool and even cashmere itchy, itchy, itchy, cool fleece items are just the best for winter wear.
(also, curling wands are the bomb, though I still rarely do my hair!)

The turtleneck looks great on you and I love it with the white jeans and boots. Also, thank you for the great hair tutorial; it was very helpful.
I love the red fleece for myself because I’m always looking for cozy sweaters in a great red color and it’s perfect for cooler Seattle days. I’d gift the natural blush one to my sweet sister who is in grad school in Portland and always loves cozy sweaters!
These are so cozy looking! I would love the natural blush one and give a gray one to my Mom who deserves some comfort since she does so much for everyone else! Thanks!
I love this! I would get it in black and give one to my mom who has been here helping take care of my two kids while I recover from surgery. She loves bright colors so I would definitely get her the periwinkle!
What an awesome giveaway! I’ve been wanting to try one of these since you featured your pink one last year. I would love to gift a black one to my good friend – she has eczema and has trouble wearing wool so cozy fleece would be great for her. And of course the natural blush one would go with everything in my closet 🙂
Love the blush and the black! I’d give one to my mama because she so deserves something cozy for those New England winters!
I love this post! I am always so hesitant to wear white in the fall/winter, but you make it look so good! Especially when paired with the brown boots!
I would choose the pink and the natural blush. I would give the blush one to my mom because she has issues with her thyroid so it is super important to her that she keeps her neck warm, and because it would be perfect for her when she and my dad go sailing!
Pink! I would give the gift to my Mom because she loves classic pieces and is always giving to others!
I would love the heather gray & would gift the second one to my sister! She would love something cozy and stylish to wear while chasing after her 2 active boys!
The white is absolutely gorgeous! I’d gift this to my sister to show her as I appreciate how she’s always beenthere for me!
Love both the heather grey and the black. I would gift it to my sister whose birthday is Saturday. She got me hooked a few years back on turtlenecks!
I would choose the blush one for my sister n law and the black one for me. I’m 1 week away from giving birth to our first baby and I have a feeling I will live in black as I’m getting back to my pre-pregnancy weight. I’ve learned everything from my sister n law who has 2 kiddos, is always willing to help me even though she is crazy with her own life and blush looks great on her 🙂
I would do the black, and would gift one to one of my friends who is a new mama. This looks fabulous and comfy… perfect for looking put together, yet comfortable enough to be with kiddos all day long.
I think I would do black – your outfit is so cute! And I would give it to my sister bc she is my bff!
I would chose the heather grey or black as a gift for a dear friend who has been there for me this past year. For myself, I think I’m in love with the marine blue. LOVE your blog! Can’t wait to see even more.
Although you could not go wrong with any color, I love the natural blush. My mom and I both have a “classic” style and I would give the turtleneck to her because without her I would not be the woman I am today….and we could match even from miles away! Thanks for sharing Dudley Stephens…everything looks like something that could fit in my closet!
Ahh love turtlenecks and fleece for the winter, what a great combo. The periwinkle is gorgeous and the grey is so versatile. I’d gift one to my roommate and best friend Liz because we are both from CT and love to shop local plus we watch your Q&A together every week! Love the blog!
Hi Julia! You Always have great suggestions for comfy, yet put together looks! Im a total sucker for anything, warm and stylish that covers my behind; I recently bought your favorite Land’s End turtleneck sweater after reading your recommendations and couldn’t be happier with the purchase!
I would want the periwinkle becuase it would match both black and navy leggings. I would give the other one to my mom becuase we are both habitually cold, but value style and comfort. Thanks for the opportunity!!
Love the short curls!! A fleece turtleneck with pockets is such a great idea!! I agree, you can’t wear hoodies all the time so this is so cute!! I think I would have to go with the light pink for myself and my sister. We both have the same taste, and she has been working from home recently like you! I know this would be perfect for her, and because we live in Texas where it doesn’t get too cold (but cold for us haha) this would be just right!!
Love this fleece! I would pick the black because it’s quite often my go to and I can’t quit it. I would love the natural blush for my sister in law who is going to be having her second baby in February, and what new mama wouldn’t want something so comfy and chic?!
This is gorgeous! I would pick the black 🙂
So cozy, cute and such a great winter staple! Exactly what I need living in the Pacific Northwest with our rainy, damp winters. I’d love to have one in black! I’d give one to my mom as well because we both have the same preppy, classic style and love the coziness of a great turtleneck!
I love the black because it’s so versatile. My mother would love it as well!
I love the black one and would love to gift to my younger sister who just had a baby!
I’d definitely go with black! My mom would love this!
I love the red and the black! Both are so versatile for the holidays 🙂 I would love to share with my coworker Ali, we’ve both been eying a Dudley Stephens for a while!
I would go with the heather grey or black. I would definitely give it to my sister who does so many kind things for me and I can never show her enough how much I appreciate her.
I would definitely pick black for me. I coach a high school swim team and am always trying to wear warm but chic outfits to practices/meets so I look more like a coach and not to get confused as a swimmer! I would gift the second to my other coach as she looks very young too and has the same problem of getting asked if she is a swimmer and not a coach!
I would choose periwinkle for me. I am a teacher and this is perfect for staying cozy and comfortable during the busy school days! I would give the other to my mom who is also a teacher and always looking for cozy, cute, and machine washable things!!
I would choose black! Beautiful look for you and hopefully for me!
I’d love the black one and would probably give it to my mom or sister, they’d absolutely love it!!
This looks so perfectly cute and comfy, I love it! I would get the marine blue– I like adding nautical colors and accessories in the winter when I’m missing the warm weather and beach. I would give one as a gift to my mom- at 60 years old she is still as stylish as ever! We always think of each other when shopping and she would love this too
I love the black one or the natural blush one, I just love neutrals and live in them. I would give one as a gift to my sister. She just got married, is buying a new house, and is a teacher, so I know she would appreciate the warmth it would give her. Did I mention she lives in upstate New York where its super cold and snowy? It would be like giving her a long distance hug every time she wears it!
Hmmmm…. I think I’d pick the natural blush to add in a little bit of brightness to a dark winter wardrobe.
And I’d give another one to my friend who is currently about to have her second baby- a cozy but flattering top is just what you need when you’re a weird shape, with zero sleep and wanting to wear comfy clothes!
I’d love one in black–and would love to gift one to my best friend!
I’d love any color – but I’m thinking Heather Grey!
Very cute top!
I’d love the black one! I would gift one to my mom who is a nurse and is constantly doing for others. She deserves a cozy, luxurious sweater for the Upstate New York winter!
