With winter now in full swing, it’s time to bring out your cold-weather clothes again! Layering has been on-trend for the last few years, and one of the best winter layering pieces is the turtleneck. Want to know how to wear yours? Read on below for six great ways to wear a turtleneck!

With denim

One classic combo that’ll never serve you wrong is a turtleneck under a denim jacket. Opt for a slimmer-fitting roll neck or a turtleneck with a light weave to make sure it’ll fit under your jacket.

Wear jeans in a contrasting shade to your jacket, or dress things up a bit with chinos or dress pants. This look is well-rounded with a pair of white sneakers or classy boots.


Turtlenecks are becoming more and more of a staple piece in athleisure as well, and they’re often seen paired with leggings or joggers. Again, this look is a good one for a slimmer-fitting turtleneck. A wool blend or cashmere will keep you warm, comfortable, and looking great!

As for shoes, this look will typically work best with minimalistic sneakers. However, a good pair of casual boots could work well too!

Dressed up

While turtlenecks work well as a casual staple, they stand out best in a dressier outfit. Try wearing one under a business suit or blazer, or try out a turtleneck dress. This look is a more casual take on a dressy outfit, so choose soft colors like blue and brown to make the outfit look warm but still sleek and professional.

Add a pop of color

A turtleneck adds a great pop of color underneath any kind of jacket, and it works particularly well under collared jackets. Try wearing your turtleneck under a peacoat or large overcoat for a classic cold-weather outfit.

Since turtlenecks come up your neck and close to your head, it’s especially important for the colors you choose to match your skin tone. If you have a cool skin tone, try a bright blue, dark green, or royal purple. If your skin tone is warmer, a turtleneck in bright red, orange, or yellow can be a great complement to your skin.

Under a shirt

This is a more advanced style trick, but with a little bit of confidence, you can rock it. Try wearing a thin, light turtleneck underneath a button-down shirt for a modern, European look. This works perfectly with your favorite jacket, wide-leg jeans, and some statement boots.


Oversized clothing has been another trend in the rotation for the last few years, and an oversized turtleneck could be a great way to stay cozy and stylish this winter. An oversized turtleneck works best as a top layer instead of layered under a jacket.

Try pairing your favorite big turtleneck with leggings and casual sneakers or jeans and a pair of boots for a comfy look. When wearing an oversized turtleneck, try to choose muted tones in your outfit so the focus of the outfit is on the cut of your turtleneck and not the color.
