A turtleneck is a high neck clothing, normally reaching right up to the chin. You can either fold it down to half its height when warm or leave it up in the winter. Sleeveless turtlenecks are available in various forms and fabrics like tops, dresses sweaters, etc., in wool, cotton, cashmere, etc. Read ahead for the different forms and how you can wear them.

A Sweater

One of the best uses of a sleeveless turtleneck is in winter clothing. You can have gorgeous knitted sweaters in wool or cashmere, using the sleeveless turtleneck pattern. Go for dark colors in sweaters and team them up with a stole in a totally contrasting color.
You can also have turtleneck dresses in a woolen fabric with a pair of well-fitted woolen or Lycra leggings in the same color and a shrug for the shoulders. For example, a black turtleneck woolen dress, black leggings and a black shrug with some sequin work on it can give a classy look. You can wear high-heeled, knee-length boots to keep your legs warm.

A Top

Sleeveless turtlenecks are a good option for special occasions. In spring, you pair a pretty turtleneck top in a bright color like red, fuchsia or orange with a pretty printed skirt which has a combination of white and the color of the top. Or pair long, cinched waist turtleneck tops with slim fit jeans or leggings and boots.
You can also wear a top that covers the waistline with a pair of leggings for a casual, yet elegant look. You can also go in for a smart top in a light and more sober shade like beige, cream or white, and wear it beneath a jacket which is a part of a business suit. You're ready to go to work in a stunning formal outfit.

A Dress

Not many women will try this, but sleeveless turtlenecks make great dresses too. Especially if your body shape is tall and slender. You can have a figure-hugging cocktail dress in sheer black with a turtleneck.
The base of the dress is a matter of your choice. You may want to keep it a straight fit or a flared skirt style. The straight fit, with small side cuts is a better option if you're aiming for a sultry and sexy look. The flared dress gives it a more formal and serious form.
Besides cocktail dresses, you can also have gorgeous sleeveless turtleneck summer dresses. They are airy and available in light, breathing fabrics. If you think the high neck will suffocate you, then you can go in for a mock turtleneck. It will be light on your neck and look pleasant too.
A sleeveless turtleneck is a sort of evergreen piece of clothing. You can wear a different kind for every season. You can also wear it differently for different occasions, as and how you want it. So, get yourself one for every season right away and enjoy its versatility.
