Not only are they practical, but they are versatile. Read on for tips on how to style a turtleneck sweater.
Keep It Simple with Jeans
This is one of the most timeless looks in the books. Mix and match your favorite jeans and a simple turtleneck sweater for a classic fall outfit. Try swapping out your skinny jeans for a straight leg or boyfriend fit to bring things up a notch.
Break up the pieces a bit by tucking in the turtleneck, and show off your waistline with an eye-catching belt.
Pair the outfit with a simple jacket and a chunky pair of tennis shoes or loafers for a stylish casual look.
Layer a heavy, oversized turtleneck over a simple pair of bottoms. The oversized fit lends you some flexibility in what you pair with-shorts, a skirt, leggings, or tights all work well and keep the outfit proportionate.
The key to a heavy top is to balance it out through the bottom. Choose a simple, understated bottom to balance out the weight in your oversized turtleneck.
Try a Monochromatic Moment
Monochromatic outfits can push a simple outfit into something more chic and modern. The shades do not have to perfectly match but stick to one pop of color throughout the look.
To kick it up a level, mix and match your fabrics. A warm knit on top with a satin skirt on the bottom provides some contrast and interest to an otherwise simple outfit.
On a cold, lazy weekend day, try a turtleneck set. These warm and cozy monochromatic sets will keep you comfy all day, and require no extra thought into what to wear. They're perfect for a relaxing day at home.
For a timeless monochromatic outfit, go for head-to-toe black. This is super versatile and creates a chic, flattering look.
Layer Layer Layer
There are so many different ways to wear a basic turtleneck. Stock up on thin, neutral-colored turtlenecks that can be worn in multiple ways.
Layer a simple sweater vest over a neutral turtleneck for an academia moment and create some contrast with a pair of leather trousers. A bold pair of earrings is the perfect complement to this look.
A Classic Button Down
Take your classic white button-down and layer it over a simple turtleneck. No need to button all the way to the top. Leave the top few buttons undone for a classy but casual look.
Pair with a blazer and a good pair of straight-leg jeans. Also try turtlenecks with pants in the same style.
Try out a heavy pair of hoops and some longer layered necklaces to balance the outfit out and create points of interest.
A Graphic Tee
Channel your favorite Y2K throwback look with a graphic tee over a thin turtleneck and a pair of baggy jeans. Try a pair of baggy black jeans for an extra Y2K boost.
A pair of chunky sneakers and an oversized leather blazer or denim jacket complete the outfit.
Athleisure Leveled Up
Even something as simple as a sweatshirt can be leveled up with a turtleneck underneath. Go for a thin turtleneck to avoid bunching and excess heat, and simply throw your favorite sweatshirt on top.
Not only practical in terms of warmth and coverage, adding a turtleneck under a dress can be very fashionable. A thin, simple turtleneck underneath a satin slip dress creates a more modest and finished piece.
Try pairing a turtleneck sweater with a bold pattern or material for a modern and stylish winter outfit.
To pair your favorite leggings with a turtleneck, pick something oversized and heavier to balance the minimalism of the bottom. With the simplicity of the bottoms, you can afford to pick a vibrant, unique sweater.
A simple puffer on top adds to the winter aesthetic while being practical and warm for a day in town.
Running errands or doing chores doesn't have to mean boring outfits! A bold turtleneck can bring a lot more fun into a casual wear outfit. Mix and match with your favorite boots or sneakers for a simple but cozy fall fit.
Keep it Professional
A turtleneck can play nicely with a classic pair of slacks. Go for something simpler with a classic fit and pair with a stylish pair of loafers. A blazer can bring the entire outfit together.
For something bolder, mix your turtleneck with a bold suit with lots of colors. A simple turtleneck can tone down a loud suit or can complement the colors even further.
Balance It Out
Turtlenecks offer a lot of flexibility with statement pieces, as they make great foundations for building on. If there is a focal piece in your closet that you've been struggling to style, try pairing it with a simple and understated turtleneck sweater.
Bold jackets or bottom pieces will be able to shine through when paired with a simple base.
Unique accessories also work well with a turtleneck. A statement jewelry piece or shoes can be the star of the show when matched with a simple outfit. Add in a cool bag to complete the look.
Try Different Styles of Turtleneck Sweaters
A turtleneck does not need to just be a plain sweater. They come in all sorts of styles and fits.
A turtleneck sweater dress gives you that perfectly effortless look. Match it with tights and chunky boots, or keep it simple with a pair of sneakers for a more relaxed style.
A turtleneck vest can provide the style of a turtleneck without too much warmth. Layer with a simple base layer or just throw on a jacket for a cool and casual outfit, perfect for a fall day.
