As we already all know it turtlenecks are sweaters with a long sleeve designed to keep us warm. The trend of sleeveless turtlenecks came back a few seasons ago. It originates back from the 90s’. If you cannot remember it, just take a look at the movie Clueless, to refresh your memory.
At the first glance sleeveless turtlenecks can appear ugly and quite not simple to wear and combine. But don’t give in to your first impressions as this garment has a modern, figure flattering look. Believe it or not, it can really fit good in combination with other pieces!
I will show you 10 ways how to pair sleeveless turtleneck with the other things you probably have in your closet. Let’s take a look, shall we?
Wear it with White Shirt
If you are not sure how to wear sleeveless turtleneck just pair it with a white shirt. It is easy, classy and putting together this outfit won’t take any longer than 5 minutes. This outfit will reveal your body line, especially if you pair it with a pair of skinny jeans. This outfit will definitely help you appear classy despite the fact that you’ve put in so little time getting ready for the occasion.
Wear it Knitted
This piece is the most popular in its original form – knitted. Combine it with a pair of super skinny jeans and heels, or with high waist pants and you will always be ready to rock. Wear this outfit for day or night events. My suggestion is to have a sleeveless turtleneck in neutral colors like white, gray or black. By doing so you will always be able to combine it with other colors in your closet.
Wear It With Thigh-High Boots
I’ve already written about the outfit ideas you can wear with the over the knee boots. If you are interested you can check out our blog post on the best thigh high boots outfit ideas. Wearing sleeveless turtleneck as a dress is very popular outfit in the blogger sphere. You could see many different street styles including this combination. I think this is very practical and it gives you the sense of feeling comfy in your clothes. You can wear it for a dinner, drink or even when going out shopping.
Wear It Elegant
Let’s say you are heading to a business meeting or some evening wedding event with your friends. And you want to look stunningly classy. For these occasions I recommend to choose all-black outfit. There is nothing more elegant than luxurious silk turtleneck, black high-waist wide-leg pants and black leather jacket.
Wear It With Skinny Jeans
I love skinny jeans. After they’ve appeared on the fashion scene, I started wearing them exclusively. They are easy to pair, you can wear them to work, school, or college. Their purpose is to be worn all day long and every day. You should definitely try to wear them with a sleeveless turtleneck. This outfit looks very modern and it will help you to highlight your body figure. Pair it with some good high heels sandals during fall or casual ankle or long boots for the winter season.

Wear It Long
I showed you how you can wear a long turtleneck with over the knee boots. Now you will find out how to pair it with pants. You can wear turtleneck over the beige wide-leg pants, and you will achieve the monochrome outfit of clean lines and lot of comfort. Paired with high heel sandals it gives you the freedom to wear it from the morning to late night hours. A black bag and big sunglasses really go well with this outfit.
Wear It Belted
For those who liked this previous look, I have another outfit with a longer sleeveless turtleneck. This one is belted around the waist. This will highlight your narrow waist! As a detail, a belt can be of the same color, if you want to keep it monochrome and minimal (like in the photo). Or you can pick some other belt with more details to give your look an eccentric note. Shoes in the same color can be a nice touch.
Wear It With Sleeveless Coat
The sleeveless coats became popular almost the same as the turtleneck. Many fashion bloggers were wearing this trendy outfit. You will be able to see many women wearing this outfit, if you take a look on some street style photos taken during the slightly colder months.
The outfit consists of two sleeveless pieces of garment. I don’t know about you, but I love it. Especially the one in the photo above. I suggest to you to try wearing beige and grey colors together. It really looks cool. Pair it with a black leather skirt and ankle boots and you will amaze your friends with this street style outfit.
Wear it Cropped
Cropped tops may be something that you are sceptical about, but, let me assure you, there is no need for that. When you’re wearing it with a high waist skirt or pants, there is just a bit of skin showing. So, don’t worry, you will not look cheap nor provocative.
Cropped turtleneck tops may seem like a spring or summer thing but you can totally wear them during winter if you combine them your warmer garments. They also have that 90s’ grunge vibe so you can wear them with leather. If you want to achieve the look from the photo above, mix the printed midi high waist dress with black sleeveless turtleneck and put on a nice pair of sandals.
I hope you like these outfits. The key is to focus on two or three garments and to combine them with the turtleneck. This will give you a fresh and modern look. Don’t worry about the piece being sleeveless. Combining it with a good jacket, or coat will give you the right amount of coziness.
