Back to the basics | 1 Basic Turtleneck, 5 Looks-232

We love basic clothing items! They are the best pieces to have in your wardrobe that can be worn in multiple ways and in multiple situations. From day to night a basic can take you the distance and can look great in both instances. But, we know it can be difficult to style a basic clothing item in a lot of different ways, it is easy to get stuck in our own styles and not see the potential in a basic piece.

That is why we have decided to help you out! We want you to wear your basic clothing items to the fullest and maximize the ways to style it and rock it. 

Today we are focusing on turtlenecks. This is a basic every woman owns and loves, but it is often only worn in a few ways.

We want to show you all the ways you can wear this piece to diversify the basics. 

1 Turtleneck Basic, 5 Ways 

Classic Comfort

The most common way to wear a turtleneck is with a pair of boyfriend jeans and some casual boots. This is an effortless look that is both comfortable and stylish. You can never go wrong with a turtleneck and jeans and it is the perfect day time look. If you are heading to the office or going out for coffee this is the best outfit to throw on for a quick look that works.

It can also be transitioned into a nighttime look by trading the boots for heels and tucking the turtleneck into the jeans. 

Feminine and Girly 

Turtlenecks look great with pencil skirts and are a great way to style this basic shirt. A neutral-colored turtleneck with an animal printed skirt, or any kind of print is a fun and girly look that we love. This creates a girly and feminine look that is also classy and modern. It is perfect for daytime activities and nighttime activities, depending on how you accessorize. 

We think styling this outfit with some fun wordy hair accessories is beyond adorable! Hair accessories and super on-trend and this is the perfect look to add them too. 

Casual and Chic

A turtleneck doesn't always have to be worn alone, it can be layered under a button up top for a warm and chic look! Putting an animal print button-up shirt over the turtleneck gives a new edge to a classic button-up, and will keep you extra warm. 

Style this look with some leather trousers and boots for a modern look we love. We suggest you add a black hat to finish off the look in a high-end way. 

Cute and Unique 

Just because turtlenecks are in season it does not mean dress season is over! One of the best ways to style a turtleneck is under a silk slip dress. This look is super cute and lets you wear your favorite summer essential items for a little bit longer.

Style a turtleneck under a mini slip dress with some knee-high boots for a stylish and cute look that we are obsessed with. 

Conservative and Stylish

This next look is the reverse of the previous one! Here you style the turtleneck over top of the dress for an interesting layered look. This outfit is a more conservative one, but the heels and hoop earrings work to make it more modern!

One of the interesting features of this look is that is can be easily transitioned between day and night. If you wear a nice maxi dress underneath you can simply remove the turtleneck from day to night and have a completely new outfit!

As you can see there is so much you can do with a basic turtleneck top! The outfit options are endless and should definitely be explored. I hope you feel inspired by these outfits made with this one basic and see the potential this one item has in making so many looks!

It is time to make our basics, not so basic!
