Pairing a turtleneck with a suit is actual one of the most simplest things to do but this is where most men will mess up. It's all about keeping it simple. Avoid overly bold colors and stick to solid and neutral colors like black, navy, and grey. If you keep the turtleneck to the same color tone as the suit then you'll for sure nail this look.

Helpful Tips:

  • Start with neutral solid colors if you're just starting out with turtlenecks. Think simple.

  • Thicker and chunkier turtlenecks are best suited for casual looks.

  • Slimmer and fitted turtlenecks are best for dressing up and a more formal look.
