3 Ways To Style A Basic Turtleneck

Let's talk turtlenecks.

Sooooooo 90's. I mean, I wore turtlenecks with stirrup pants, okay? But, what goes around comes around, and turtlenecks have certainly come back around this season. For the first time since probably 2005 or something, I bought two basic turtleneck shirts and a turtleneck sweater and I am ROCKING the turtleneck look this year. 

This is one of my turtlenecks from Gap. It is gloriously comfy and long enough to wear with leggings. Holla.

If you're unsure of bringing back this trend or you aren't confident in your abilities to make it look a little less outdated, here are my favorite ways to update this look.

 

Look #1: Wear it with a vest

Okay, not like your grandpa's sweater vest. Denim vests are a great, edgy option. I also like to wear this turtleneck with a black puffy vest I got from Gap a while back. (Can you tell I'm a Gap fanatic??) Vests are a great layering piece and they don't require a ton of accessorizing!

Look #2: Tuck it into high waisted Jeans

Show off those curves with some high waisted jeans. A simple turtleneck with jeans is classy and adorable, but make sure you accessorize well! Throw on a simple necklace and some cute loafers or boots with this look.

LOOK #3: PAIR IT WITH A GREAT JACKET or cardigan

This jacket is also Gap and it is fab. (Okay, now you can really tell I'm a Gap fanatic). If you're wearing a basic turtleneck, pair it with an interesting piece like this grey jacket, a denim jacket, or a simple, long cardigan. Minimal effort + maximum comfort and warmth = great winter outfit.

Ya'll. Don't shy away from trends that are making their way back around from the 90's. You can find the turtleneck pictured here, but I also love this turtleneck and this one as well.
