Yes, that’s right. It’s time to put away the shorts and swimsuits and let your fall pieces shine.
One piece of clothing that returns season after season is the black turtleneck. It’s warm, it’s stylish, and, best of all, it’s super versatile and can be paired with pretty much anything in your closet.
If you want to upgrade your wardrobe this fall, here are nine ideas for how to style your go-to black turtleneck so that it feels as fresh as your style does.
Accessorize your black turtleneck with a beret for a chic vibe.
You can wear a matching black beret and some light-wash denim for a low-key look, or find a beret in a bold jewel tone like emerald or sapphire for a more head-turning effect.
Style your sweater with a pair of culottes.
A pair of tailored culottes will complement a cosy, slouchy turtleneck. The wider leg adds volume while the cropped hem balances it out. Add a pair of heeled mules or ballet flats to complete this simple yet stylish look.
Wear your turtleneck with an A-line skirt and tights for a cosy fall look.
Tights and skirts are a no-fail fall combination, and they both perfectly complement a black turtleneck. If your skirt is high-waisted, tuck in your sweater for a more polished look. Or, leave it untucked for a more casual vibe.
Or wear it under a vibrant statement coat.
The great thing about black is that when you pair it with more colourful items in your closet, it makes those shades pop.
Consider a coat in a colour like tangerine, poppy red, or even a powder blue to wear over your go-to black turtleneck for a look that won’t go unnoticed.
Pair your turtleneck with a satin skirt for a stylish twist.
Satin skirts have been making appearances on the Instagram feeds of many fashion insiders this fall – and they have started appearing in high-end stores as well.
For a bit of a laid-back look, pair a black turtleneck with a satin skirt, maybe in a leopard-print pattern or a bold colour.
Layer your sweater over a leather miniskirt.
If you love layers and streetwear, try this combination for a unique silhouette.
Knits and leather look great together because the fabrics are so different. Not to mention, a fall investment piece like a leather miniskirt will give you tons of outfit variety.
Or layer it under a suede or leather jacket.
Mixing textures is what fall dressing is all about and cosy knits pair really well with suede and leather.
Find a jacket you love in a cool silhouette (maybe a biker style or an oversized jacket) and slip it over your black turtleneck.
Tuck your turtleneck into a pair of high-waisted jeans.
There’s a reason this classic styling trick comes up season after season. Tucking the front of your turtleneck into a pair of jeans will make your outfit seem effortless.
Layer your sweater under a blazer.
Fall is the perfect season for blazers. Whether you find one in a solid colour or a playful pattern, they’re the perfect way to make a cosy piece like a turtleneck feel dressed up, without sacrificing comfort.
