We love stocking up on sweaters, but our favorite of the season is the classic turtleneck. There’s no denying that they keep us warm and cozy throughout the cooler seasons, and the extra coverage is essential to surviving temperature drops. Figuring out how to style a turtleneck in fresh new ways can be challenging. With so many exciting trends emerging, it can be tempting to try them all out at once. But, try a few too many with one outfit and we could end up looking like this (hey, you do you, Dwayne). Just in case you’re not feelin’ the fanny pack, we’ve pulled a few of our favorite pieces to help you master styling this closet staple. Trust us, you’re turtle-y going to love them (sorry, couldn’t resist).
1. Luxe Textures
We’re all for a neutral ensemble, but the best way to take your outfit to the next level is by playing with a variety of textures. A cozy knit paired with coated denim screams sophisticated without feeling stuffy. Complete your look with a puffer jacket and you’ve perfectly mixed the highs and the lows for a street-savvy ensemble.
2. Tunic Length Turtleneck
For a piece that lends endless styling opportunities, invest in a tunic length turtleneck in a versatile color. Easy to pair with virtually any bottom, it will quickly become a Monday-to-Sunday kind of piece. We suggest finishing your look with a camel trench coat. It’s equally versatile, and when paired with the tunic length sweater, the long lines of each piece will visually create a ton of length for your figure.
3. Frills That Fit the Bill
If you don’t love the feel of a turtleneck or are lucky enough to enjoy warmer temps all year ’round, try a mock neck top. With added detail along the neckline, it feels like a modern take on a classic piece. To toughen up this feminine ensemble, layer an edgy moto jacket over your sweater to complete your look.
