How To Wear A Turtleneck Sweater With A Necklace

When you’re pairing your turtleneck with a necklace, it’s important to know how to wear it. Show off your accessory! Don’t wear your necklace under your sweater, and pull it up and over the top.  

Wear your necklace around the outside of your turtleneck sweater, so that it sits comfortably. You can tuck the clasp underneath the fold of your turtleneck.

Simple And Subtle 

Sometimes, less is more. A shorter chain can add some subtle sparkle or shine. This could be a dainty gold or silver chain, or a string of pearls.

These necklaces look great with a plain, dark turtleneck.

Go Bold

Alternatively, you could choose to pair a plain turtleneck with a bold statement necklace. This will really draw attention to your accessory.

Ideas include a chunky chain, a large pendant or a beaded collar.

Try Something Different 

You could wear a necklace that makes a statement and really stands out from the crowd. Add something slightly different to your outfit; a unique piece that you don’t often find. Don’t be afraid to experiment, and make this the focal point of your look.

Layer Up 

Layering necklaces is another way to add a focal point to a plain turtleneck. Try multiple necklaces of different lengths and textures, to create an interesting twist to your outfit.

Try A Longer Chain 

A longer chain necklace also works well with turtlenecks. These fill in the blank space between your high neck and waist and help to elongate your torso.

Try different designs that complement the rest of your outfit.

Chunky Chains 

Chunky chains look great with chunky knits. That way, the chunky chains complement the texture of your turtleneck. Plus, your necklace won’t get lost amongst your turtleneck, and will still be able to stand out and make a statement.

Try Earrings Instead

Is your turtleneck a chunky knit, or particularly bright or bold? Or are you not a fan of necklaces? No problem, try pairing your turtleneck with some bold earrings to add extra elegance to your outfit.
