Winter wouldn’t feel like winter without a warm, cozy turtleneck in your wardrobe. From slim-necked and classic to loose, chunky, and oversized, there’s sure to be a type of turtleneck that looks fabulous on you.
Here are five styles that are trending right now and ideas on how to wear them.
1. Classic Tunic Turtleneck
One of the most popular types of turtlenecks this season is the classic tunic turtleneck. With its slim silhouette, roll-over neckline, and sporty side slits, it is the definition of casually chic. The softer, the better! This one is light, warm, and snuggly and only needs a pair of jeans to make you look gorgeous. I love that beautiful blush shade that complements any skin tone!
2. Mock Neck Sweater
A mock neck is similar to a classic turtleneck but with a shorter collar. Instead of the collar ending just under the jaw, it stops at Adam’s apple and does not need to be folded over. This is a great style for women with shorter necks who don’t want their turtleneck to swallow them up or for anyone wanting a less bulky look than a rollover turtleneck.
This pretty rust mock neck sweater is right on trend at the moment because of the beautiful collar, which can be unbuttoned and folded down for a more relaxed look.
3. Funnel Neck Sweater
Funnel neck sweaters are my favorite type of turtleneck. They are essentially mock neck sweaters, with the top of the collar a little wider than the bottom, just like a funnel. The collar on a funnel neck is an extension of the sweater rather than a separate piece sewn on. I think this makes them look very modern and artsy. (See the cashmere mock turtleneck I wore in the fall).
One of the nice things about a funnel neck (or mock neck) is keeping you warm without making your neck feel hot, stiff, or crowded.
4. Cowl Neck Sweater
Cowl necks sweaters are the most relaxed of turtlenecks and are a beautiful way to frame the face softly. If you are a gal, who is very curvy or busty and doesn’t want a lot of bulk up top, the soft drape will work well for your shape.
5. The Sleeveless Turtleneck
This classic sleeveless turtleneck is a very sexy look and is great for the gal who loves to show off her toned arms. I think it looks sleek and sensational tucked into a pair of cropped waist tie pants. Add some heels and a fab bag, and you have a very sophisticated look. Did you see this in the blush color too? It’s stunning!
