We would have never thought that a turtleneck can become a statement clothing item, but fashion trends are here to prove us that even the most simple and boring item can be reinvented. Early fall is a good time to get your turtlenecks out. If you don’t have any, you are missing out! We’re sure that by the time you finish reading this article you will be on your way to buying your first turtleneck.
Reasons to wear turtlenecks:
- They are extremely comfortable;
- They will keep you warm during the cold months;
- They are affordable clothing items;
- They come in a wide variety of colors and fabrics;
- You can create trendy and fashionable outfits with them.
Here are 4 trendy ways to wear turtlenecks:
- Office Look
A black turtleneck can be just as effortlessly chic as a white blouse. Wear it with black striped pants or with cullotes for a memorable office look. An elegant combination can be achieved by mixing a white wool pencil skirt with a grey or sapphire blue turtleneck.
- School Girl Charm
Feeling playful? Then wear a turtleneck with corduroy shorts and a trench coat on top of everything. To achieve that youthful look that reminds us of high school or university years, you can also wear the turtleneck with a tulip mini skirt or with skinny jeans. Boots are a must for any of these outfits, of course.
- Social Diva
The crayon skirt and turtleneck in a monochrome combination is a trendy outfit that you can wear to work or for a cocktail after work and look just as stunning. If you are feeling adventurous and creative, you can get rid of the crayon skirt and go for an A-line skirt with geometric pattern or print.
- Casual Look
Jeans and a black or white turtleneck is probably one of the most affordable and comfortable outfits ever. You can take advantage of the versatility of these clothing items and accessorize them to be suitable for any kind of event. Wear a statement golden necklace, clutch and high heels for an evening out, a fedora hat and big sunglasses for a day in the park, knee high boots and a fancy back pack for a short trip to the mountains.
The turtleneck is an incredibly versatile clothing item and it can practically be worn in any combination you can think off. My personal favorite is quite a tomboyish look: oxford shoes, suit pants and the turtleneck. The outfits can be romantic, business, retro or glam chic and they are usually very easy to put together, especially now that you have read our article!
