Black turtlenecks, versatile and perfect on their own tucked into a skirt or jeans. It also work beautifully when layered as I styled giving that swan-like effect.
I tucked a black fitted turtleneck into my black pallazo for an easy black base layered the low v-cut sleeveless peplum on top. I finished the outfit with my go-to sunglasses, and faux fur pom pom heels makes it perfect for a night out or a meeting during the day.
How to style a black turtleneck
- Choosing the appropriate turtleneck for the weather.
The lightweight turtlenecks are ideal for layering – works for those of us in Nigeria with somewhat hot or cold especially during the harmattan season and rainy season.
- Embrace a monochromatic look.
No one ever goes wrong in a monochromatic look. These elevates the look from a nothing-to-wear matching pieces of same colour to form a viable outfits. All in black – pair of turtleneck and a high waist pallazo, heels, sunglasses without the sleeveless shirt would makes a good monochromatic look.
- Mixing up minimalist look with stripes.
Style you hair into a sleek bun – this slims out and makes the neck appear longer and keeps away from discomfort – with stud earrings for a classic minimalist look. To complete the look layered with a stripe sleeveless that makes its way to the minimalist wardrobe.
- Ditch the blazer or jacket
When wearing sleeveless isn’t quite possible, turtleneck allows you to wear your sleeveless clothing without replacing the use of a jacket. Considering the sleeveless without the turtleneck, the turtleneck elevates the whole outfit by providing coverage to the low v-cut sleeveless top allowing this outfit appropriate for work or church.
