A black turtleneck is a must for many working women, and with good reason: It has a modest neckline, keeps you warm and toasty, and most importantly, serves as a good foundation for countless outfits. Get the most out of this staple by pairing it with these clothing items below:
1. Printed Midi Skirt
Spice things up! A basic black turtleneck makes for an ideal neutral base for a fun printed skirt.
Tip: Try work-appropriate prints like plaid and checks.
2. White Pants
Contrast the seriousness of a black turtleneck with a white pair of trousers.
3. Plaid Blazer
The combination of a high-neckline and long sleeves is sophisticated and cold office-friendly.
4. Black Skirt
Pair your black turtleneck with a skirt in similar hue and you get an instant LBD!
Stretchy, lightweight turtlenecks double as a smart innerwear that you can layer underneath sharp suits.
6. Colored Pants
Corporate ladies can dress up an otherwise plain turtleneck outfit with colored trousers. Jewel tones like burgundy and emerald green won't be too loud for an office setting.
