A black turtleneck is a timeless staple during the winter months. But nobody wants to feel like Steve Jobs and wear the same black outfit every day. Turtleneck sweaters are great simple basics, but that means they’re versatile!
If you’re in a style rut or just looking for a fresh way to wear your black turtleneck, keep reading. I’m sharing some ideas — everything from the casual look to dressy outfits — so you can get more use out of what’s already in your closet and rock your look with confidence.
Let’s get to it!
Black Turtleneck Outfit Ideas

1. Black Skinnies and Cardigan
Throwing on an oversized cardigan (especially a bright one for that pop of color) over your black turtleneck sweater is the easiest way to style it for everyday wear. The skinny black pants balance out the oversized top so you still look fashionable but without too much effort.
2. Faux Leather Joggers & Denim Jacket
Both black turtleneck tops and faux leather joggers can be dressed up or down. I went the casual outfit route by pairing them with white sneakers and a fun denim jacket.
3. Leggings and Oversized Puffer Vest
If you need a little extra warmth, layer an oversized puffer vest over a fitted black turtleneck and black leggings. It’s a great way to stay warm during transitional weather. Wear this look on a hike, running errands or to the soccer field.
If you need waterproof boots, I’ve got you covered.
4. Burgundy Pants & Puffer Vest
Your puffer vest can be part of a bit more polished look too! Swap out your leggings for some rich burgundy pants and black leather boots.
5. Long Shacket
The turtleneck style is just asking to be part of a layered look! And of course one of my favorite ways to layer is with a shacket. This long coat is the perfect addition to your winter wardrobe and to your black turtleneck top.
6. Blazer & Skinny Jeans
If you’re looking for a tailored look for work or a business meeting, wear an oversized blazer over your black top and balance out the silhouette with black skinny jeans. It’s an easy way to make office wear look chic without being the nerd in the turtleneck!

7. Burgundy Pants
There are endless ways to style your top if you have fun pants in your closet! Let your pants do the talking for your outfit with a deep jewel toned pair with a basic black turtleneck.
8. Oversized Vest
If you’re going to add an extra layer to your fitted turtleneck and skinny jeans, I love the way oversized items look. This cool oversized vest is the perfect complement to your outfit. Instantly more stylish and interesting.
9. Faux Leather Wrap Skirt
There are lots of chic ways to wear black turtleneck outfits. Take it out to date night with a leather midi skirt. In the cooler months, go with a heeled boot; in the spring and summer, dress it up with a pair of heels.
10. Burgundy Pants & Denim Jacket
You can make new stylish outfits even with pieces that have lived in your closet for a long time. You just have to put them together in unexpected ways! This oversized denim jacket goes perfectly with my burgundy pants and turtleneck.
I hope this gives you some fresh ideas for an old favorite! Stay warm and stylish, friends!
