Toasty turtlenecks are a real winter-wardrobe lifesaver. Ubiquitously French chic, a simple turtleneck tee with a pair of jeans and flats is a great go-to look for everyday wear. But the turtleneck’s tireless style doesn’t end there. Whether it is a chic brunch with the girls, the boardroom or date night, the turtleneck is poised to continue its reign as the best go-to wardrobe piece no matter the setting!
Below you’ll find our suggestions for every setting, followed by some style tips for coordinating them into your closet.
High-waisted jeans are great for a tuck, but that limits you to the textile type. For chunkier sweaters, just tuck the front over one pocket to add a slimming effect between the two pieces of clothing.
Turtleneck dresses are perfect with a pair of tights in a pattern, or richly colored opaque tights.
Turtlenecks are the layering masters; you can use one layered under nearly anything, adding a bit of warmth while offering an opportunity to accessorize, as well! For example-wear all black, with a red turtleneck under your black sweater/top, and match your lipstick and shoes for a fun coordinated color pop.
Turtlenecks are also great for the office; nothing says business like a turtleneck under a blazer, yet it also feels a bit more casual than the collared button-up.
Turtlenecks present a great opportunity to layer your necklaces. Longer necklaces paired with a turtleneck create a slenderizing line from the jaw down.
Larger scarves also look nice layered over a turtleneck; play with the scarf to create more asymmetrical shapes over the shoulders.
