Turtlenecks are warm, cozy, and versatile, but if you have never worn one before, styling one might seem intimidating. Luckily, with a few tips and a little experimenting, you can use turtlenecks to elevate almost any outfit! Here are my favourite outfit ideas for how to wear a turtleneck sweater.

As a Matching Set.
A turtleneck looks polished and appropriate in more formal office settings when worn as a matching set. Pair a slim-fitting turtleneck with a skirt for a business-ready look. Finish this look with a pair of stilettos or ballet flats. I love this high-impact tight black turtleneck with a black pencil skirt and an amount of refinement.

Tuck a thin-knit turtleneck into an A-line skirt for a feminine look. A flared skirt with a tight waist paired with a close-fitting turtleneck is a classic look that looks great on almost any figure.

Wear a turtle neck with floral palazzo trousers. Complete the look with a pair of slippers for a trip to the mall.

A thick cozy turtleneck sweater and a pair of mom jeans is the perfect way to stay warm on a cold weekend.

Wear a turtleneck tucked into skinny jeans for a casual, versatile outfit. You can go almost anywhere with this look. Canvas sneakers are the perfect shoes for this casual look.

Wear a tight-fitting turtleneck with shorts for a night out. Just because the weather is cool does not mean you have to sacrifice your going-out style. Choose a simple black turtleneck for a sleek, sexy look. For a more daring look, opt for a turtleneck in a bold print, like leopard or a bright floral.

Church comes to mind when pairing the turtle neck with a short flared Ankara skirt. You can also wear on a casual Friday.

Accessorizing Your Turtleneck
Fancied Up With Statement Jewelry.
Toss on a cross-body bag for an easy, practical accessory. A crossbody bag helps break up the appearance of your sweater, which can have a flattering effect. For the best results look for a bag with an embellished strap, like one made from chain.
Pin a brooch to your turtleneck for a classic, elegant accessory. Brooches aren’t worn as commonly as they used to be, but they’re a pretty way to add sparkle to your look.

The options are limitless. In the winter, It is an easy layering piece that can go from work to weekend and guarantees you will be warm and cosy. Every man and woman should have this in their closet. I got my turtleneck from Tiwa’s collections

    • Noted Nonny! This post is mainly for styling a black turtleneck. I can style other colours in a future post.

    • Thanks Miriam. Yes, you can rock a turtleneck, just throw in a scarf around your neck or long chains with pendants. Or even a shirt or a jacket and leave it unbuttoned. Or pick a turtle neck with pattens which draw attention down to your waist. Please avoid long earrings, wear your hair up and you are good to go.
