Even though we’re already in January, looks like the nip in the air will prevail for a bit. And that’s why there’s winter dressing to the rescue. Now many people have a misconception that winter dressing is boring. Honestly, there’s only so much you can do with it in terms of layering or even styling. That said, when you adhere to the right styling, it is possible to spruce up even the most boring outfit. If we had to pick out one dapper piece of winter clothing, it has to be a turtleneck sweater. One of the most underrated basics, the turtleneck sweater can be styled in many ways. Can’t figure out how to go about it, then you’re at the right place. We at WODROB have got you not one, not two, but three ways to style the classic turtleneck sweater. Keep scrolling to find out how.
As a key piece
This one’s a no-brainer. Sporting a turtleneck for a casual evening? Pick one in a bright colour and wear it with your light washed jeans for a playful vibe. Add a few winter accessories to the look such as a felt hat or a scarf. If you’re planning to sport it for a dressier event, then team it up with a pair of patterned trousers and loafers. Ditch the blacks and browns to opt for a turtleneck sweater in mustard. Team it up with a white pair of pants and brown shoes.
With a jacket
Another way to sport the turtleneck sweater is to layer it with a bomber jacket or an overcoat. This outfit not only looks good but will keep you cosy as well. Stick to classic hues like camel, beige and black when you’re too sure of the colour pairing. Not too afraid to inject some colour into your ensemble? Then wear a navy blue turtleneck and throw a coat in burgundy or plum for a contrasting look. Team it up with your regular trousers or a pair of checked pants in light grey. Complete the look with a pair of black boots.
Under a suit
Ditch the formal shirt and wear a turtleneck lightweight sweater under a suit instead. If you’re looking to dress down a suit, then a turtleneck sweater is your best option. It instantly gives you a suave look. Try an ochre turtleneck with a grey striped suit to look dapper. You can also play with layers, and wear a cardigan over your turtleneck sweater and a solid-coloured suit blazer over it. Team it up with patterned trousers and add a pocket square to your blazer to complete this look.
