How to style a turtleneck? If you’ve read any of my recent blog posts or have seen my photos on Instagram, you’d know that a simple black turtleneck is my staple during the colder months. In today’s blog post I’d like to show you how to style this basic item. I have a few casual outfits for you and a few formal ones. Although, we might have different ideas about what “casual” and “formal” means.
Casual Ways to Style a Turtleneck
Add an Accessory
The first outfit is quite straightforward. You’ll notice that in all of the casual ways to wear a turtleneck, I paired it with a pair of black trousers and loafers. That’s a very stylish way to wear a turtleneck in itself, however, to accessorise the outfit, I opted for a red beret, which adds a pop of
Add a Layer
Since the autumn is officially here, you might want to wear more than just a pair of trousers and a top. Even though I always say that a turtleneck (no matter whether it’s a jumper or a top) is the perfect clothing piece for the autumnal weather. However, you can’t go wrong with adding another layer. Here I decided to throw a long checkered coat over the outfit.
Add a Layer and an Accessory
Why would you add a layer OR an accessory when you can add both? You can wear a wide scarf as I did, and a belt to make the outfit look a little more creative. And don’t worry, you won’t be cold. The scarf is surprisingly warm.
Formal Ways to Style a Turtleneck
Wear It With a Suit
At this point, you might be aware of how much I love a good suit. Have you ever thought of wearing a turtleneck underneath instead of a blouse? Surprise, surprise! It looks pretty damn stylish and is also warmer than a blouse
Wear It Underneath a Blazer Dress
Because why not?! I love wearing a turtleneck underneath a blazer dress. It still looks very sexy, but I’m not showing too much. And the OTK boots? They are a must for autumn and winter!
See you soon!
