If that’s not enough inspiration for you, here are some simple ways to introduce the turtleneck into your wardrobe:

Fitted trousers

Take inspiration from old-school Audrey Hepburn and pair a cropped turtleneck with fitted trousers. Choose a style which is cropped at the ankles, and complete the look with a pair of leather loafers or even classic ballet flats.

Khaki jacket

Street style blogs often show how trends can be worn in multiple ways. Since the colder season is upon us, why not invest in quality outerwear. Thicker jackets and coats look amazing with turtlenecks, and are sure to keep you warm. Oversized khaki jackets are super-versatile and will complete any outfit.

Skater skirt

Torn about what to wear on your next date? If you want to brave the cold, show some leg and pair your favourite turtleneck sweater with a loose skirt. Not only will this balance out your entire look, but with the right hair and makeup, will surely be chic and approachable. If you’re feeling the cold, finish off the ensemble with a pair of 0ver-the-knee boots.
