Get The Chic Turtleneck Trend From The Fall/Winter 2015 Runways


As the temperatures gradually head toward sub-zero and the skies promise plenty of snowflakes in the weeks ahead, the shift in the weather from autumn to winter calls for comforting, luxurious knit turtlenecks. While the idea of a bulky turtleneck sweater may bring back memories of childhood fashion disasters from the 1990s, the cold weather essential has been updated in true style for Fall/Winter 2015. Here’s how to steal this rising trend from the catwalk and bring it into your own closet for the season ahead.


Whether you’re heading out to meet your girlfriends for brunch or simply checking out a cool new café, the look of a classic black turtleneck layered under a flowing frock is a sweet take on 1990s styling. Follow the silhouette showcased on the Tanya Taylor runway, and step out in a fitted, lightweight turtleneck styled with a strappy black and white printed sundress. To bring ladylike charm to your ensemble, look for a dress with a dainty pattern, a deep V-neckline and a casually knotted belt. Complete your style with opaque black tights and matching ankle strap pumps for a casual yet cool effect.

Work Wear

If you’re looking to upgrade the ubiquitous turtleneck from youthful throwback to modern day sartorial staple, look no further than the Tome runway. For a sleek, polished business look, try a creamy white ribbed turtleneck worn with crisp white pleated trousers. To bring a contrasting effect to the monochromatic ensemble, top off your style with a chic, knee-length belted camel coat and pointy toe pumps.


Traditionally, night out fashion has called for daring necklines and hints of décolletage, even as we approach freezing evenings. However, the turtleneck received a fresh and flirty makeover this season at Roberto Cavalli. Transform the once-conservative knit into a sexy Friday night look, by heading out in a fluffy cropped turtleneck paired with a glittery embellished mini skirt and black leather belt. Whether your night involves cocktails or a concert, don’t forget your black leather ankle boots or that dangling gemstone pendant on a gold chain!
