How to Wear Turtlenecks for AW15

If you’ve been keeping an eye on neckline trends this season you’ll have noticed that demure turtlenecks are back with a vengeance, which is perfect for this time of year when we want to wrap up warm. Here are four turtleneck style ideas to help you incorporate the classic roll neck into your wardrobe.

Layers

A really cool way to wear the roll neck this season is to combine cosy turtleneck jumpers with your pretty summer dresses. This look allows you to nail multiple trends in one; light layering, 90s revival, and geek-chic. The theme can work with lots of different types of dresses, from flimsy mini varieties with slim straps to dramatic maxi-dresses, so it’s a great way to dress down your favourite pretty dresses that you thought could only be worn in summer.

Chunky Knits with Chic Midi Skirts

If you tend to wear elegant midi-skirts to the office all year round you can get ready to give it a cosy new twist by adding a chunky turtleneck jumper. You can choose to either tuck the jumper into your skirt to maintain that chic hourglass silhouette, or you could simply let it hang loose for a cool nerdy vibe and an outfit that is super-comfy yet still professional enough for the office.

Add Turtlenecks to Evening Outfits

In the past turtlenecks have been reserved for day-wear in the form of demure tops and jumpers, but times have changed, and everyone is now rocking the high neck in the evening too. Take the Pruet Sleeveless Jumpsuit for example; this elegant tailored number fits close to the body and is in dazzling white which is perfect for a party, yet that high neck gives it a demure, wintry twist which is very stylish. Rock this culotte jumpsuit with heels and a bold necklace to complete the look, or if a turtleneck jumpsuit isn’t really your bag you could try a turtleneck dress or combine a roll neck sleeveless crop top to a figure-hugging midi skirt instead.

Oversized and Slouchy

Although we hate to say goodbye to summer sun, the redeeming feature of autumn and winter is being able to wear huge, slouchy jumpers all day every day, and the good news is that oversized turtlenecks are very on trend. As with any type of big jumper, they work best when teamed with skinny jeans and ankle boots, with a classic leather biker jacket thrown over the top; effortlessly cool.
