While turtlenecks can certainly be worn year-round, they typically get the most mileage during the fall and winter season. The extra neck coverage is essential once temperatures drop, so it's no surprise we've started seeing this piece appear in the autumn ensembles of some of our go-to fashion girls. Among the most popular we've spotted as of late? Printed turtlenecks (think a wild animal print or classic stripes) because although a classic, clean pick can be paired with everything, there's something about a patterned one that just feels so current.
Don't think that you can't pair a printed turtleneck with everything in your wardrobe, either, because you certainly can. Mixing and matching patterns is a trend that will never get old, so get creative and pair a striped top with a checkered skirt (an example of which you'll find below). Or, go a safe route and team one of this season's hottest and wildest prints (ahem, snakeskin) with uncomplicated black pants.
Ahead, we've rounded up the best of the best in terms of printed turtleneck outfits to copy. So read on to see the looks and then shop our favorite patterned pieces to buy now and wear all season long.
