The Black Turtleneck


Lately, there’s nothing I’ve been wearing more than my black turtleneck sweater. If you’re  following me on Instagram (which you totally should if you aren’t, @kahrentorosyan), you have been seeing my turtleneck a lot and that’s because I can’t stop incorporating it into my outfits! Now, provided we are right in the middle of winter and it’s totally acceptable to be wearing a turtleneck, I feel like they’re not getting as much attention as they should. Today, I wanted to share about why you absolutely need a turtleneck, specifically a black one, in your wardrobe!


From Casual to Formal

Black turtlenecks are one of the most versatile pieces one can have in their closet. Starting off with the color itself, anything black can be paired with everything, giving you more room to play with because of the neutral, simple color. I’ve been wearing my turtleneck both casually and formally and the best part is that I don’t even feel guilty about wearing the same piece over and over. One of my favorite ways to wear it is by layering it under an oversized vintage tee and blue jeans. The three together create an effortless, easy look without having to worry about staying warm during the colder weather. I’ve also been wearing my turtleneck under blazers and I love the more classy but edgy vibe you get from throwing on a patterned blazer over a simple turtleneck. 


They Will Never Go “Out of Style” 

I can’t seem but to chuckle when I hear people ask, “Turtlenecks are back”? Of course, some pieces do have their trendy moments and turtlenecks have certainly had theirs throughout the years, but they will never go out of style… in my opinion. I mean, are we doubting the possibility of turtlenecks returning every fall and winter seasons? However, black turtlenecks especially will always remain a staple because of its color. It’s a lot easier to get away with wearing a black turtleneck because of how it can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion. 


You Can Find Them Everywhere

 And I don’t say this loosely! Once fall approaches, I see turtlenecks pop up everywhere! The black ones in particular are easy to find because of the neutral color and popularity, so when you start shopping for one, it’ll be a breeze finding it. There are so many different brands, knits and styles of black turtlenecks which gives you the opportunity to try a bunch on!
