The turtleneck sweater may seem rather basic for some, but being simple also means that it contains limitless styling powers. Whether its your summer tops, classic shirts or winter wools, this high-neck staple has the power to give any outfit a modern edge. To get you inspired, we’ve compiled our top three looks for styling turtlenecks this season.

Look 1: Classic shirt + midi-skirt + knee-length boots
