Since turtlenecks are back in a big way, it felt appropriate to jump right in with chunky turtlenecks. Probably the most cozy of all the chunky knits, the turtleneck is at times tricky to style because you don’t want to look like a blob with your head poking out. To make sure you’re bundled enough to stay warm but also look really cute, you want your look to have clean lines. This means picking sleek silhouettes and skinny jeans or tights so there’s a sense of shape. No sweatpants here unless you’re loafing around the house. We want the turtleneck to evoke a sense of coziness but the rest of your outfit says “I’m put together.”
This look features a pair of cropped leather pants which is cool but kinda hard to wear so I chose to recreate the outfit using ankle-length coated jeans instead. Feel free to go the cropped leather route, but the jeans are just as cute. Overall this is a chic, easy to put together look, with a very oversized chunky turtleneck and camel coat. Add some tough booties and a few simple gold accessories and you’ve got a cozy city-ready outfit.
Olivia Palermo is one of my top style crushes, and here she is rocking a chunky turtleneck and looks incredible doing it. The key, again, is proportions. She has a big sweater, skater style flippy skirt, but then leans out the look with opaque black tights and high heeled booties. The result is fun and flirty. Any flouncy mini skirt will do, but I found this cheetah print skirt and had to recreate Olivia’s look. Again, go with simple accessories because you’re so bundled that you want the sweater jacket combo to be the standout.
