5 Great Ways to Wear a Turtleneck Sweater With Style

Remember those days when turtlenecks were considered ghastly and dated? Well, the fashion industry seems to have gotten over its repulsion for this winter staple.

As you may have noticed, turtleneck tops have made a massive comeback. Perhaps that’s not surprising for a garment that has been worn for hundreds of years.

However, jumping on the bandwagon is easier said than done. Styling a turtleneck sweater is not a walk in the park. It adds bulk quite easily and can overwhelm a lesser mortal. But don’t write it off just yet.

We have some tips on how you can make turtleneck sweaters work. We sought inspiration from fashion bloggers who have shown us great ways to style them!

1. Turtleneck With Button Down Shirt and Overcoat

Give your polo neck a 90s flair by tying a button down shirt around your waist and using an overcoat to amp up the warmth meter.

Canadian blogger Alyssa of Ordinary People gave her turtleneck sweater street style vibe with a printed shirt tied around her waist. To avoid making the look bulky, balance it out with cropped pants. Chunky-heeled shoes will lengthen the silhouette.

2. Turtleneck Sweater With Midi Skirt

Turtleneck sweaters work stupendously with midi skirts! We suggest the pencil skirt kind. It gives off a stylish, just-got-out-of-the-runway effect. You can tuck the sweater in the skirt.

If you have a cropped sweater like Blanca of ‘Walking Around’, just let the hem hang over the skirt for an effortless flair. Complete the look with a jacket over your shoulders and a pair of ankle boots. Her fashion blog is unfortunately no longer available online.

3. Keep It Casual With Loose Pants

Fine-knitted roll-necks team up flawlessly with semi-loose trousers. Take it from Savinad of The Blossom Girls, who opted to wear her sweater with leather semi-loose pants. Punctuate the casual look with a pair of smoking slippers or fabric loafers.

4. Turtleneck With Ripped Jeans

Transition your ripped jeans to winter by teaming it up with snazzy polo neck knitwear.

Like Abby Vancisin, you can layer a button-down shirt underneath the sweater so that the hem is peeking out from under. You can wear flats, pumps or smoking slippers with this look.

5. New Direction With Denim Overalls

The combination of a turtleneck sweater and denim overalls is perfect if your style falls under the retro and vintage category.

Catie’s outfit is the perfect example. Refine the look by rolling the hem of your overalls up and then wearing a pair of ankle boots. A satchel bag can complete your preppy vintage-inspired outfit. You can check out Catie’s blog at Fleur d’Elise.
