How to Wear a Turtleneck Like a Fashion Expert

Emma Spedding

There was a time when turtlenecks were considered frumpy or unflattering, but now they are seen as a winter staple for any wardrobe, which can even add an unexpected edge to your look. Instead of simply styling them with jeans, now wearing a turtleneck is all about clever layering tricks. You'll notice that most street style pictures from 2017 include a turtleneck.

We've picked up a number of surprisingly cool ways to wear roll necks from the street style set, including under ruffled shirts, blouses, and summer dresses paired with jeans. While we believe everyone should own at least one black turtleneck, you can also experiment with textures and prints, whether that's a glittery hot-pink jumper like Yasmin Sewell's or a striped roll neck, as often worn by Susie Lau.
