Turtlenecks are a classic winter staple that can be worn in many ways. Not all turtlenecks have to be a thick wool sweater. From sporty to dressed up, I will take you through my favorite ways to style a turtleneck.
When Girl Meets Boy
When looking for turtlenecks, there are more options than you'd think... Try a lace one, paired with a skirt or even one with suspenders. Add a black cardigan or a long coat and some oxfords to bring a masculine touch. Items Featured: Manoush Top, Comme Des Garçons Brace Strap Skirt, Acne Mohair Cardigan, Comme Des Garçons Shoes.
Black & White
A black turtleneck is a classic and a wardrobe staple but when you add a cutout jacket it makes a cool layered look. Grab some culottes and your favorite black sneakers for finished look. Adding pops of white to an all black outfit creates a polished and sporty look. Items Featured: Yohji Yamamoto Turtleneck, Jill Sanders Culottes, Raf Stan Smiths, Yohji Yamamoto Blazer, Issey Miyake bag.
The Yeezy Street
Yes, it is Yeezy season still. A mock neck (the sister of the turtleneck) allows you to still elongate your neck while acting like a normal turtleneck. Pair your mock neck with kilt-like pants, add some bad ass boots and throw on a cap. This look is killer. Items Featured: Acne Studios Satin Cap, Yeezy Season 1 Jumper, Yeezy 950's, Issey Miyake Apron Pants.
Grey & Gum
A grey turtleneck sweater and a camel coat are to essentials to own. There's something about camel and grey together... It screams put together. I love the Puma Creepers with this look and a light wash pair of straight leg jeans. I know everyone loves skinny jeans but I love the look of a little bit baggy jeans when paired with a chunky sweater and sneakers. Items Featured: Acne Sweater, Whistles Coat, Acne Jeans, Puma Creepers, Ksubi Sunglasses.
Lace it Up
The hype of the season is lace up tops but, forgot about it in this cold weather. Instead try a lace up sweater and layer any think turtleneck underneath. Again Culottes, I know I can't get enough. Throw on a bomber and some patent leather booties for a model off-duty look. Items Featured: Isabel Marant Sweater, Saint Laurent Bomber, C/meo Culottes, Saint Laurent Boots, Mykita Sunglasses.
Try thinking outside the box when shopping or styling yourself, play with textures, silhouettes, and colors. Turtlenecks are great for layering as well, so think about items you can pair with them. I know a lot of these items are high end, if you can't get your hands on these use this as a style guide when shopping!
