You know that picture of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson where he’s posed in a black turtleneck and blue jeans, accessorizing to the nines with a chain necklace, leather belt, and fanny pack?
I can’t tell you the number of times I’ve looked down and realized I’m wearing essentially the exact same outfit.
But who could blame me?
Pretty much every item in the iconic ensemble claims a spot on recent trend lists (hello, dad jeans and belt bags) — including, of course, the timeless turtleneck for women.
From tight-fitting tissue knits to chunky cropped styles, my rotation of turtlenecks plays a starring role in almost all my cool-weather looks.
And while I rock a Rock-inspired plain black number plenty, I really love sweaters that steal the show with eye-catching hues, playful patterns, or surprising details.
We rounded up the 10 cutest statement turtlenecks for women on the market right now, so you can transform your standard jeans-and-a-sweater ensemble into a photo-worthy moment — with or without a fanny pack.
This sweater’s swirly stitched trim and rainbow stripes remind me of a layer cake. Balance the sweetness with a pair of chunky lug-sole boots.
Reach for this western-inspired knit next time you get invited to a dance party. All that fringe will add extra razzle-dazzle to your signature shimmy – pair with versatile cowboy boots for a timeless ensemble.
Stay warm in hot pink. Consider color blocking with other brights, like a midi skirt in vivid orange or lime.
This delightful cropped mock neck is ideal for elementary school art teachers — or anyone who wants to steal their look.
I have never once in my life participated in a winter sport. That doesn’t stop me from aspiring to the perfect aprés ski–inspired outfit, like this turtleneck plus a beanie, boots, and a mug of hot cocoa.
Fall’s answer to floaty eyelet dresses, this adorable knit would look just as good alongside leather pants as it would with a patterned skirt and tights.
A criss-cross cable knit and bold folded neck turn a basic sweater into a statement one. Of this turtleneck’s four cute colorways, I’m partial to the rust shade, which would play well with wide-legged white pants.
Just when you thought the leather-look trend only applied to leggings and jackets. This turtleneck would add cool contrast to denim or even corduroy.
Call this under-$150 sweater a sartorial mullet — business on the torso, party on the sleeves.
This pretty sweater’s pastel brights and bold ruffled shoulders give it an updated ’80s vibe. Offset the cropped length (and keep your belly warm) with high-waisted pants.
Try two trends at once (the sweater vest and the traffic-stopping turtleneck) with this sleeveless knit. It’s a no-brainer over dresses you’d like to carry into the colder months, but don’t underestimate the coziness — and cuteness — of a double-sweater situation.
