I stood in front of my closet and said: I need more fun.
But I’m in that phase of life where I don’t want to add things to my closet just because. I’m…picky. It has to be the right color for me, a style that represents my personality, and a silhouette that I like to see on my body. After discovering my best colors, I set out to find solid basic pieces in my favorite colors, and while my wardrobe looks very cohesive now (which makes my life EASY), it was time to add some edge.
I need more fun.
Printed Turtlenecks: An On-Trend Wardrobe Hack For Adding Fun & Interest
I found my fun by way of a printed jersey turtleneck in two of my favorite colors: deep blue and brown. Now before you run because you don’t like brown, do.not.worry. I’m not here to tell you to wear brown. Instead, I want to encourage you to add some fun to your closet in the form of printed jersey tops. Nothing precious, only a piece that will be so versatile that you will want to wear with leggings, jeans, and even a dress or a skirt.
Let me show you.
This is the top I got:
Tee shirt material, fitted but not so much you feel uncomfortable, fun enough, and in colors that go with the rest of my closet. It’s easily wearable with what I wear most days — jeans. You can layer it under a blazer, button-down, or cardigan for a peek of fun. And that turtleneck + camisole combo looks even better if that turtleneck/mock neck is printed. Lastly, it looks amazing on Zoom calls, so you don’t look so basic with just a solid top.
Find A Printed Turtleneck For You
I spent nights looking for great picks, and you know what I found? They’re mainly made by higher-end European brands. However! I was able to find some great pieces at every price range, starting at $30. Let’s see! You can find six to eight picks per category below. Most are turtlenecks, but there are some crew and mock necks with the same vibe.
1. Not Your Usual Animal Print Turtlenecks
I’m all for non-traditional colored animal print, especially for those who can look washed out by the warmer colors of most animal prints.
2. Bold & Colorful Printed Layering Turtlenecks
My top pick for print, inclusive sizing, and the price is this Boden top. The three options are stunning. Bold prints will make any outfit stand out. Wear them by themselves, or let them peek under more layers. Most here are on the investment side, so make sure the colors are your best.
3. Sexy Sheer Printed Turtlenecks
These sheer ones are perfect to feel sexier without showing a lot of skin. My top pick is this $38 AFRM top that comes in many great prints and has raving reviews. I had to order the blue one.
4. Light & Airy Printed Turtlenecks
Some of my most recent clients look their best in lighter shades, so my eye has been paying a lot of attention to them. Get ready for spring with these pretty colors. This watercolor print is everything.
5. Classic & Chic Printed Turtlenecks
I was ecstatic to see chevron stripes, or glen plaid prints. You’ll look so put together even if you pair them with jeans.
Are you ready for some prints? Which was your favorite?
