How to Style The Turtleneck

Turtlenecks are the bomb. Sweaters, hoodies and fuzzy oversized cardigans are amazing too. But a turtleneck is the perfect way to chic up your look while layering strategically.

So often are closets are missing essential basics simply because they’re boring. Or we think they are. I used to feel this way too. Why spend my money on a cami or plain turtleneck when I can buy those stylish oversized sweaters instead? Let’s answer that.

1| It cuts down on the bulk and adds warmth.

Have you ever successfully paired an oversized sweater with a cardigan? Probably not. They are just not pieces that complement each other. Not to mention it just wouldn’t be comfortable.

2| Neutral Color Options

Basics usually come in a handful of color options. Making them easy to pair with pretty much anything.

Now, that we covered why to buy your basics, in this case, the turtleneck. Let’s talk style tips.

1| Make it a focal point

My gray turtleneck is a focal point without clashing with my cardigan simply because it’s grey. It complements the black without being overbearing.

2| Layer it with a blazer or cardigan

This is my favorite way to rock a turtleneck. If you want to dress up choose the blazer. If you want a more casual look go with the cardigan. Whatever you choose, keep it chic an fun.
