As we all already know, turtlenecks are long-sleeved sweaters designed to keep us warm. The trend towards sleeveless turtlenecks came back a few years ago. It is from the 90s. If you can’t remember, just watch the movie Clueless to refresh your memory.
At first glance, sleeveless turtlenecks can be ugly and not easy to wear and combine. But don’t give in to your first impressions because this garment looks modern and flattering. Believe it or not, it can go really well with other parts!
I’m going to show you 10 ways you can mix and match sleeveless turtlenecks with the other things you likely have in your closet. Let’s take a look.
Wear it with a white shirt
If you are unsure of how to wear a sleeveless turtleneck, just pair it with a white shirt. It’s simple, classy, and putting this outfit together takes no more than 5 minutes. This outfit shows off your body line, especially when paired with skinny jeans. This outfit will definitely help you look classy despite investing so little time preparing for the occasion.
Wear it knitted
This piece is the most popular in its original form – knitted. Pair it with super skinny jeans and heels or high-waisted pants and you’ll always be ready to rock. Wear this outfit for day or night events. My suggestion is a sleeveless turtleneck in neutral colors like white, gray or black. This way you can always combine it with other colors in your closet.
Wear it with thigh-high boots
I’ve already written about the outfit ideas that you can wear with the thigh high boots. If you’re interested, you can check out our blog post on the best over the knee boot outfit ideas. Wearing a sleeveless turtleneck as a dress is a very popular outfit in the blogger area. You could see many different street styles including this combination. I think this is very practical and makes you feel comfortable in your clothes. You can wear it to dinner, drinking, or even shopping.
Wear it elegantly
Suppose you are going to a business meeting or an evening wedding with your friends. And you want to look breathtakingly classy. For these occasions, I recommend choosing an all black outfit. There is nothing more elegant than a luxurious silk turtleneck, black wide-leg trousers and a high leather jacket.
Wear it with skinny jeans
I love skinny jeans. After they appeared on the fashion scene, I started wearing them exclusively. They are easy to mix and match, you can wear them to work, school or college. Their purpose is to be worn all day and every day. You should definitely try to wear them with a sleeveless turtleneck. This outfit looks very modern and will help you highlight your body figure. Combine it with good high heel sandals for autumn or casual ankles or long boots for the winter season.

Wear it for a long time
I showed you how to wear a long turtleneck with over the knee boots. Now you will learn how to pair it with pants. You can wear a turtleneck over the beige trousers with wide legs and get the monochrome outfit with clean lines and a lot of comfort. Combined with high-heeled sandals, you can wear it from morning until late at night. A black bag and large sunglasses go really well with this outfit.
Wear it belt
For those who liked this previous look, I have a different outfit with a longer sleeveless turtleneck. This is strapped around the waist. This will highlight your small waistline! As a detail, a belt can be the same color if you want to keep it monochrome and minimal (like in the photo). Or you can choose a different belt with more detail to add an eccentric touch to your look. Shoes of the same color can be a nice touch.
Wear it with a sleeveless coat
The sleeveless coats became almost as popular as the turtleneck. Many fashion bloggers wore this trendy outfit. You will be able to see a lot of women in this outfit by looking at some street style photos taken during the slightly colder months.
The outfit consists of two sleeveless pieces of clothing. I don’t know about you but i love it Especially the one in the photo above. I recommend that you wear beige and gray together. It looks really cool. Combine it with a black leather skirt and ankle boots and you will surprise your friends with this street style outfit.
Wear it cut off
Cropped tops may be something that you are skeptical about, but I assure you it is not necessary. If you wear it with a skirt or high-waisted pants, just a little bit of skin will show up. So don’t worry, you won’t look cheap or provocative.
Cropped turtlenecks may seem like a spring or summer, but you can wear them fully in winter if you combine them with your warmer clothes. They also have the 90s grunge feel to them so you can wear them with leather. If you want to achieve the look of the above photo, mix the printed high-waisted midi dress with the 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 pieces of clothing and pair them with the turtleneck. This gives you a fresh and modern look. Don’t worry about the piece being sleeveless. Pairing it with a good jacket or coat gives you the right amount of coziness.
