3 Reasons Turtlenecks Are A Hidden K-Fashion Staple

Korean fashion is constantly updating itself with new trends and styles. Despite this ever-changing landscape,  turtlenecks are the most versatile piece in every K-fashion lover’s closet. Here, we’re bringing you the top 3 reasons why you should add a turtleneck to your cart:

 

They’re A Skirt’s Best Friend

From iconic K-pop girl group looks to the streets of Seoul, is there a more popular Korean women’s fashion item than the miniskirt? Available in any color, pattern, and fabric, it goes with everything and can be paired with nearly anything depending on your mood. Try pairing it with a turtleneck for an adorably youthful and girly look.

If you’re finding miniskirts to be too revealing or show too much skin, a turtleneck is a perfect solution. The full coverage up top helps contrast the amount of skin shown so you can feel comfortable. 

Patterned turtlenecks — like stripes — bring even more attention up top.

 

They Dress Up Any Casual Look

Yes, even the most chill of dressers can rock a turtleneck effortlessly. If you’re a tee-and-jeans type of person, wearing a turtleneck can elevate your look for any occasion.

The Rate Wave Ribbed Half Turtleneck Tee Shirt’s scalloped neckline makes any casual outfit cute and comfortable.

Want to take the look to the next level? Turtlenecks with unique necklines bring more pizzazz to your look without any additional effort.

 

They’re Perfect For Layering

Whether you choose to dress modestly or simply can’t stop wearing your summertime faves, layering a turtleneck underneath nearly anything is the perfect way to stay warm, covered, and stylish. Pair a brightly-colored turtleneck under a dark-colored dress (like cherrykoko’s Modern Vent Dress) for cool contrast or a dark, skintight turtleneck (like chuu’s Good Feeling Tee Shirt Vol 3) under a tailored blazer for a super chic, upscale vibe.

How do you feel about this cold-weather staple? Do you wear turtlenecks often or do you have reservations? Let us know!

Flutter Moment Dress by chuu

Is there a costume more classic than Wednesday Addams, the queen of Halloween herself? A black dress with a white collar will always be reminiscent of the spooky icon, but this number by chuu can also transfer into the rest of the year as an easy way to look elegant, classy, and chic.

 

Del List Mini Set by LAGIRL

No matter what time of year, this top and skirt set is an adorable and easy going casual look.
