I’ve got some major trend for all of you! I am talking about turtleneck sweaters for women. It’s a perfect autumn and winter staple that is great for cold days wearing. When I hear word turtleneck I imagine granny chic styles, 1990’s crop models, chunky and oversized designs. Each one of these fabulous pieces is great for teaming with your everyday and special occasion apparel. The great thing about this piece is the fit, as you can try on fitted and loose-fit chunky styles without worrying about your overall look. I think you agree with me that turtlenecks have a mannish appearance, making its wearer look sophisticated and edgy.
This great top achieved its popularity back in 1960’s and 1970’s, then it was revived in the 1990’s. Nowadays, it’s a real explosion, as we see various styles and fashion updates, starting from retro chic looks to grunge glamour and boho chic designs. My personal favorites are those granny styles with oversized and chunky cuts.
Update your casual everyday look by wearing a cream white chunky piece with leather shortened trousers, awesome espadrilles and cool, geometric shaped shoulder bag.
As I have already told, the long styles are ideal for teaming with black mini lace skirts. Finish the look by adding black tights, cool booties, leather black tote bag and a tweed coat.
That’s a sweet granny’s pale blue sweater. Wear it with your favorite skirt and cherry shoulder clutch.
The cream white designs are great for wearing with butter brown baggy leather trousers and sporty zipper coats.
Keep it urban inspired and pair your pastel colored knitwear with cool, ripped jeans and patent, pointed-toe heels.
So, how to wear these statement turtleneck sweaters this season? Well, use your imagination and get some inspo from the street looks. You can wear them as dresses over skinnies, team them with your flirty mini skirts and pair them with high boots, thigh-high ones or sexy heels. If you want yourself a casual touch, then I recommend to try your hair tucked in a big chunky sweater worn underneath leather jacket and paired with cool skinny jeans.
If you love terminator movies and you want yourself a sophisticated look, then I recommend to add slim-fit black leather jacket.
I personally love to see women wearing those big tops with more delicate fabrics, like silks, lace, chiffon, etc. There is a great trick for plus size and curvy women: try on a chunky top and finish the look by adding heels that will make you look taller and narrower.
Keep it cool, bright and sweet with an oversized fuchsia colored design paired with jegings and Houndstooth black and white pumps.
There are pretty damn cool fitted styles. They look more 1970’s inspired to me. You can upgrade them with awesome wrap cardigans and cool blazers making a real ladylike look. These designs are perfect for office wear. If you think these tops look quite simple, then I recommend to try on some eye-catching accessories to finish the look. You can throw on a great necklace.
How about reviving the grunge look from the 90? I recommend to try on an awesome biker jacket, cropped turtleneck, boyish jeans and suede black booties.
So what’s up with all the turtleneck? Nothing, we just love them so much. I personally love them for underlining my chin that makes me look sophisticated and really hot. Are turtlenecks your number ones for cold autumn and winter days? Please comment and tell me your favorite styling tips.
