You usually bust out your cozy denim jackets and hoodies when the weather gets chillier, but there are other ways to stay warm, especially if you’ve got important office meetings to look polished for; reaching for those long-sleeved turtlenecks in your closet is one option! With its high neckline, this closet staple gives off a refined feel like your basic button-down blouse—except it's a lot cozier to wear. P.S. If you're not a big fan of how its neckline takes up your neck, mock necks (a.k.a a turtleneck-like top with a shorter collar) are a great alternative.
Check out the different ways you can start re-wearing your turtleneck:
1. Pairing a stretchable, long-sleeved turtleneck with a printed blazer will provide you all the warmth you need without looking bulky—or dull.

2. Do you pair your turtleneck with your jeans way too often? Switch things up by tucking it into a pair of printed culottes...
As a bonus, the print, especially if it comes in dark colors, can hide away signs of the rain.
3. ...Or by powering through a lazy, rainy work day with a pair of colored pants:
Go for tops in muted hues to avoid a clash of colors.
4. A turtleneck paired with checked, tailored pants is both toasty and meeting-ready.
