How to style a black turtleneck

It’s the Little Black Dress of the Fall/Winter season. The cozier, more comfortable LBD. And we’re gonna style it 10 different ways. If you’re familiar with my page, you’ll know my key elements for fashion incorporate elements of Hygge, which means comfort, easy style and no fuss. The black turtleneck is one of those pieces that can be styled quite effortlessly. And with a few simple changes, you can create entirely new stunning looks.

Look One

Let’s start with a dark blue jean base. And add some cognac or burgundy accents. Low heel booties and a cute leather purse always glam up a look.

Look Two

You’ll want black bottoms, whether they’re trousers, leggins or ripped Levi’s like mine, just go with what you love. Then, a white sneaker for a hip comfy touch. A camel wool coat (Aritzia is my go to) or duster, plus a boxy black purse (Aldo) to top things off. Muah!

Look Three

I’ve taken the coat off from the previous look and voila, just as chic. More casual, suits warmer weather. I’d probably throw my hair up in a bun and add sunnies for this one.

Look Four

Switch out the casual kicks for a pair of more sophisticated boots. I love these grey Sam Edelman ones from Nordstrom, but it could be any variety from leopard print to straight black for the classic and always stylish all black look.

Look Five

Throw the camel jacket or cardigan on and we’ve got a polished look to take to the streets for that afternoon cafe date.

Look Six

Let’s alter the look with a pair of comfortable light denim. I really love how this color combination looks together. Once again, simple change…total difference.

Look Seven

Without the coat and changing from the boxy black purse to the more delicate brown leather option, we’ve got a simple and chic Fall outfit.

Look Eight

If we want to make things more casual and comfortable, grab the white sneakers. Pair it with the little brown purse or opt for something different like a black leather backpack.

Look Nine

Pairing a black turtleneck with a trench is super French and super chic. Keep it casual with sneakers and choose how you want to finish off the look with your bag if you want to dress it up or down.

Look Ten

Acknowledging that it is always raining where I live in the Pacific Northwest, I’m fully committed to adding wellies to any outfit and black Hunters work swell.

The black turtleneck is a key capsule wardrobe piece for the Fall/Winter season and with small adjustments, like switching out a purse, or footwear, everything still works and you’ll look effortlessly pulled together. And remember, when adapting Hygge elements into clothing, remember comfortable, simple and not fussy.
