Women’s Turtlenecks

Turtlenecks are handsome shirts with a round, soft-fitting high collar.  A versatile top, turtlenecks can be worn for business under a blazer or can be a dressy addition to a long skirt or a pair of slacks, or they can be exceedingly comfortable casual wear with the right pair of jeans.  With a simple design and endless versatility, turtlenecks are wonderful additions to any wardrobe.

Turtlenecks are the perfect complement to skirts, pants, and jumpers and an affordable way to update a wardrobe. In fact, they go with everything from workday skirts to dressy palazzo pants. For women, instead of tossing the turtleneck to the back of the closet, add accessories to transform the shirt from bland to chic. Look for items that appeal to you and coordinate with the turtleneck. Because of the high neckline, you are limited on necklace types, but you have free reign on other accessory options. Play around with different accessories until you find your ideal look.
