Baby, it's cold outside. Hide your neck, please. 

Turtlenecks are a super hot piece of this Autumn/Winter season. Even though it's been around for quite several seasons, this time it's more than just a warm supplement. Turtlenecks are leading the fashion game.
This piece have long gone into masses of our immense planet. Yet designers keep introducing it in lots of new ways, stylings, combinations and shapes. For example, DKNY went big on turtlenecks by implementing several styles at a time - classical options, in black, white, grey colors, as well as slightly over sized options in bombastic red and purple colors. Meanwhile, Peter Pilotto went all creative by adding tricky prints and patterns. Color blocking strategy can also be spotted in their Autumn/Winter collection. Sonia Rykiel joined her colleagues in this fashion game by introducing a good number of turtlenecks, among which we can also find several sleeveless pieces.
So here we go with a quick recap. And seems like we have so far identified 3 main turtleneck options. Now let's pay a closer look to each of them...


Classical turtlenecks always work, be it a chunky knitted piece or a simple jumper. Especially when it comes to winter, endless colds and heavy winds. Classic turtlenecks in neutral colors and with no additional prints or embellishments are super practical. Such pieces can easily be used in your multi layering strategy, in other words, being worn under shirts or in a combination with other knits. 

Colors and Prints

Unlike classical turtlenecks the colored and printed pieces are a good choice to add emotions to your outfit. And brighten up this grey-ish world. Requirements to such turtlenecks... joking. There are no requirements to either which one should you choose, in color or with print one, or how should you style this option. You can put it as the main accent of an outfit or color block it, or play around color plus print combination. 


Sleeveless turtlenecks a la top or vest are pretty much a cool thing. Plus it can work multiple ways - you can wear it on its own, under coat or brazer or whatever, you can also wear a long-sleeved top underneath, especially if it's the heavy knit vest option. Multi layering? Maybe. Oh, let's not forget that asymmetrical sleeved turtlenecks also count. Not really practical ones, but highly charming pieces...
