12 Turtleneck Outfit Inspirations for a Timeless and Comfortable Flair

Turtlenecks are a versatile piece that is a foundation for putting together a capsule wardrobe. Turtlenecks can be worn as a layering piece or as a stylish, polished, elegant, and practical item. They are also great for adding warmth. This classic piece has a subtle mystery to it. Wearing a turtleneck exudes sophisticated confidence. Turtlenecks are a classic staple that has been worn by many icons, including Carolyn Bessette Kennedy, Mick Jagger and The Beatles. Audrey Hepburn also wore turtlenecks, as did Steve Jobs, who owned hundreds of black Issey miyake turtlenecks. It’s not surprising that the turtleneck can be reimagined in a variety of ways, depending on your personal style. Here are 12 outfits with turtlenecks that are both chic and functional.

Sequins and metallics were seen on many spring 2024 runways. Layer a sequin-covered dress with a fitted, sheer turtleneck over it for an evening out. Add even more glitzy details to the look: molten cuffs and hoops in oversized sizes, as well as a silver bag with a moonbeam effect.

Turtlenecks, in the first place, are powerful insulators. Use a turtleneck like a base coat to add layers of different textures and colors. This concept can be applied to a variety of items, including sheer skirts and trousers, cashmere knits, button downs, blazers and dresses. Layering jewelry is another option. A cuff, or chain-link pendant can be worn over your turtleneck to create a unique look.

Denim on denim will never go out of style. A turtleneck, handbag and polished belt can break up a blue ensemble. Look for jackets that are either tapered (which is in style at the moment), or have a belt attached. You can change or add the belt to create a more deliberate silhouette.
