Who says cold weather has to put a damper on your engagement photo shoot style? We're drawing inspiration from Bachelorette couple Kaitlyn Bristowe and Shawn Booth's engagement session this week and proving that a turtleneck can be a chic alternative if you're going for winter glam.

Are you a totally '70s bohemian babe? Yeah, so is Natalie Suarez of Natalie off Duty. She's giving us major Marianne Faithful vibes in her Capulet turtleneck and suede dress paired with pointy-toed flat loafers. It's a simple cool mod look that's a breeze to recreate!

Julie Sariñana of Sincerely Jules keeps things comfy and cool in a maxi skirt with a slit cut up to there and a comfy turtleneck. Accessories do the talking here with her chelsea boots and wide brimmed hat making this very London in the 1960's. Opt out of the accessories for a cozy winter photo shoot that will make it even easier to cozy up with your husband-to-be by a fire.

For the fashion-obsessed nothing screams cool like a leather skirt. And of course you want all the cool-girl vibes for those important snaps of you and your fiancé. Channel Look de Pernille's Pernille Teisbaek in a chunky knit tucked into a structured leather skirt (hers is from Acne Studios), and some lace up booties. Just the right does of casual cool and ultimately sophisticated.

Ok so we're cheating a bit on this one, but it still counts as a turtleneck if it's covering your neck right? Sydney-based blogger Carmen Hamilton of the Chronicles of Her fame is adorable, stylish and sexy in a high waisted Alexa Chung for AG denim skirt and crochet lace Zimmerman top (which seems to be THE item to have for fashion girls this season). Channel her look with a see through high neck top paired with just a pretty black little something underneath.
If feminine glam is your thing than Atlantic-Pacific's Blair Eadie is your girl. The self-proclaimed "lover of all things colorful, chic, preppy and printed" is all sorts of glam in her chic (yet amazingly subtle) black turtleneck, drama-enduring hoop skirt (which gives you the illusion of stripes and plaid all at once), and shiny pointy toed heels topped off with bows — all in shades of black and white to keep the look minimally classy of course. It's kind of Blair Waldorf meets Audrey Hepburn and we're loving it for your engagement photos. Picture your guy in a tailored suit and a dimly lit back corner of a classic library bar: very modern-day Rat Pack.
