Turtlenecks were all over the Winter 2022/23 catwalks, sending us a clear message that they are back and bigger than ever. But as much as we have no complaints about a cozy sweater that is guaranteed to keep us wrapped up and warm in the colder months, styling this particular piece of clothing can often be a challenge. As always, we've taken cues from our favorite influencers and figured out what's hot and not when it comes to turtleneck fashion. Here's everything you need to know.

As displayed by fashion stylists and influencers worldwide, the trick to turtlenecks is layering. Start with the high-necked item as your base, and work your way up. For example, try pairing it with a dress over it and then throw a long jacket on top of that. Another helpful tip is to mix and match with a variety of textures. Denim, knit, ribbed, frayed, ripped, loose, tight - throw it all together for the ultimate chic fit!

Ensure your turtleneck is timeless and a closet staple for years to come by choosing the right one. An influencer favorite is a chunkier knit, loosely fitting and neutral in color. Dress it up with tailored pants, or go casual with leggings or jeans. Many influencers have also been seen wearing an oversized turtleneck untucked over baggy pants or sweatpants. That's the beauty of the baggy nude turtleneck knit - it goes with everything!

There's something about pairing a turtleneck with a skirt that has the crowd going wild. Whether it's a long matching knit skirt, a bold leather mini skirt, a patterned silk skirt, or a sparkly skirt, it's the simplest way to guarantee you look good and turn heads. Although mini skirts don't scream warm protection, we've come prepared with a winter guide to mini skirts. Whatever you choose to pair the turtleneck with, we suggest the casual tuck at the front to help provide more shape and give a finishing touch to the outfit. With all these options, we conclude that the turtleneck is not as scary as it seems!
