Fashion, being cyclical, is constantly changing. The seasons come and go. So, it is always on the move. It is thanks to that we have to be behind her. However, there are certain garments that we must have as a wardrobe bottom and the turtleneck or turtleneck is one of them.
It is a reality that these sweaters are a must-have in our wardrobe since autumn begins since they warn us and at the same time they manage to give us an interesting look. This piece is a classic that from its beginnings came to our closet to stay and also invites us to play with creativity.
For this reason, from Fashion Trends, we invite you to take out your favorite turtleneck or to go and buy a new one, because today we show you some incredible combination ideas for this basic of the season. Ready to meet them? Take note!
When to wear a turtleneck?
Its cut is tight and it has been popular since the 70s, although its first appearance was in the 15th century.
However, it wasn’t until the 1920s that Noel Coward first wore it and it became popular in the preppy style. It is generally a garment that is used for cold seasons depending on how cold it is, of course.
The turtleneck is a form-fitting garment and is perfect for layering, under a jacket, coat, or even a classic trench coat. I guarantee that this garment will give you a very timeless, preppy look and full of style.
How do I know if my turtleneck fits?
The turtleneck, being tall, usually tends to add more volume to the neck area.
In this sense, if you want to prevent your face from looking exaggerated, I recommend choosing those that are a few inches below your chin.
This garment is perfect for women with a high neck and slim, also those who have little bust as it provides a wide appearance in that area of the chest. Now, if you, on the other hand, are petite and rather plump, I invite you to choose that neck that is more open, not so closed, and a few inches below the chin.
You should avoid it if your face is very round, a short neck or if you have too much bust. On the other hand, if you have an apple body shape, it’s best to not wear it. Otherwise, it will just mess with your figure and make it look disproportionate.
How to wear a turtleneck?
The turtleneck is always going to become an infallible garment in our wardrobe (men and women) because, in addition to covering us from excessive cold, they give us elegance and sophistication to the look we wear.
This garment can be worn to the office, in an informal outfit, or even to a very special dinner.
It will give you sobriety and femininity. Now, do you want to learn more combinations to wear it with style? Keep reading!
Down coat and necklace.
You can add a very chic touch to your black turtleneck with a thick chain over it.
If you want to get a more sporty look, combine it with jeans and a down coat (down).
The thickness of this coat will help you look very comfy.
Combine it with earth colors.
Although we can always choose to choose the black turtleneck, I invite you to choose earth colors that adapt well to halftime. You can choose a brown sweater to combine with whites, beiges or other earth colors.
Ideal for lovers of the total look of any color.
However, I invite you that when you dress in a single color, mix the textures to make it look different and unique.
For example, you can choose between knits with leather if you opt for black.
I invite you to choose a very chromatic style with black and beige since they get along very well and can give you a very interesting style. If you decide on this dynamic duo, make your jacket lighter.
How about the basics?
Yes, with basics you can also achieve heart-stopping looks.
You can combine simple items such as a black sweater, mom jeans, and a long trench coat.
You can also put interesting accessories such as an XL bag, a thin belt, and military boots to carry on any plan.
With oversize garments.
These combinations are very striking.
An oversize turtleneck will help you put together a very striking wardrobe that will also favor you a lot.
Baggy wool jackets are an option to wear and still look very sexy.
Especially if you use it as dresses combined with long boots.
AHA! Did you think about this? If you choose a turtleneck dress you will also be very in trend and you can wear it in layers playing with sheer fabrics or kimonos so as not to add volume to your outfit. If the dress is made of soft material, the better.
How to wear a woman’s turtleneck?
In addition to the ideas of combinations that I mentioned earlier. I would like to clarify some common mistakes that we make when wearing this garment.
This way, from now on you will know which ones are the ones that will never fail you.
The first is to overload your look with accessories or clothes. Especially if you have a wide back and opt for thick fabrics.
Why? If your back is very wide, thick fabrics can make it stand out more, which will make your figure look well unbalanced.
So, If you want to avoid it, opt for thin fabrics that do not add more volume. If it’s sleeveless, the better.
Next, another common mistake is not making color contrasts. These contrasts will help you create a very smooth or monochromatic look.
This is why fashion experts recommend not wearing a single color. Instead, what you should do is contrast and combine different shades to achieve the perfect look.
What’s important is that when dressing, you must achieve the perfect balance.
In this sense, I invite you to know your type of figure, the shape of your face, and your proportions. This way, in the future you get the best combinations with the best style and taste.
At Fashion Trends we say yes to the turtleneck as long as you combine it properly. For this, we invite you to save this article, as well as comment and share it with whomever you think needs it.
