How to Pull off Wearing Necklaces with Turtlenecks, According to A Stylist

And there are no awkward dangling chains in sight.

Turtlenecks are hands down one of our favorite winter style staples. They’re classic and stylish, plus they keep our necks warm. But there’s a major mystery surrounding the turtleneck: How do you style one with a necklace?

Sure, this might sound silly, but whenever we think of turtlenecks and necklaces, we see visions of skinny silver chains worn under the sweater, awkwardly coming up and over the top of the neck hole.

“I remember that look when people used to wear a chain popping out the top of the turtleneck, and I think that was, like, 1983,” New York-based stylist Lisa von Weise told HuffPost. “That definitely feels outdated to me.”


When we asked von Weise to share some tips for styling turtlenecks with necklaces, she suggested opting for a longer pendant necklace.

“It should not, in any way, fight with the neck,” she said. “In fact, a pendant or a longer length necklace would fill in the space and elongate the torso. A turtleneck can kind of make you feel a little closed up, and the look is a bit Victorian, but you’ve really got to do something with all that empty space there.”

That’s not to say von Weise was totally against the idea of wearing a turtleneck with a shorter, chunkier necklace.

With von Weise’s suggestions in mind, we did a little research and found some examples of turtlenecks paired with necklaces ― long and short, dainty and chunky.

Take a little inspiration from the stylish men and women below:

Try Something Subtle

A thin collar necklace, as seen on blogger Doina Ciobanu, can add just a hint of sparkle or shine.

Or Go Bold

If your turtleneck is plain, why not add a beaded collar, like actress Charmin Lee did, for a dose of drama?

Layer Up


Take a page out of Marisa Berenson’s stylebook and pair layered necklaces (or a single necklace with multiple strands) with your turtleneck.

Don’t Be Afraid Of Clashing


Actress Cate Blanchett proves there’s no such thing as too much sparkle with this look, which is actually great inspiration for holiday dressing.

Dress It Up


Turtlenecks don’t only exist in sweater form! Singer and actress Mary J. Blige brought the turtleneck-and-necklace combo to the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival in May and nailed it.

Try Something A Little Edgy


The chunky lock-and-chain necklaces we saw on the runway at the Tommy Hilfiger show earlier this year make pretty great accessories for turtlenecks.

Pair Chunky Knits With Chunky Chains

If you thought a chunky turtleneck sweater would swallow your accessories in its folds, think again. As we saw at the Marc Jacobs fall 2017 runway show, it’s all about proportion.

Go For Length


Another great option is to try a long necklace, which adds an instant boho vibe and ensures your jewelry doesn’t get overshadowed. Check out this look from the Ground Show fashion show during Mercedes-Benz China Fashion Week in November.

Try A Large Pendant

Artist Cleo Wade is proof that large pendants and statement necklaces are still cool. And they definitely look great with turtlenecks.
