Cover Up in Style Wearing Women's Turtleneck Tops

Wearing a women's turtleneck is a timeless way to cover up during cooler weather. These ladies' tops feature long sleeves and distinctive high necks to protect you against the winter chill. You'll find women's turtlenecks from top fashion brands like Liz Claiborne and Worthington at JCPenney.

The Appeal of Timeless Women's Turtleneck Designs

Women's turtleneck tops seem to have been a fashion staple for as long as anyone can remember. They've long been worn by fashion icons like Marilyn Monroe, Jackie Onassis, and Audrey Hepburn. In recent years we've seen turtlenecks appearing in the runway collections of esteemed fashion houses like DKNY, Victoria Beckham, and Suno. With department stores like JCPenney stocking a variety of turtlenecks, it's easy for women across America to recreate these catwalk looks.

Women's turtlenecks tend to fall into two categories. The first type, made with a fine knit, is the most versatile as they're light enough for winter and spring and the easiest to style and layer. Heavier turtlenecks made from chunky cable knits are much harder to layer unless you size up your coats. They look best taking center stage with your favorite skirts and pants.

Style Your Women's Turtleneck Tops Right

Women's turtlenecks are incredibly versatile pieces, which is perhaps why they've endured over the decades. They look just as good worn with tailored pants, jeans, and feminine skirts in a range of cuts. You can proudly let them shine in the spotlight or layer them under coats, jackets, or retro puffer vests for extra warmth.

A thick, cozy turtleneck looks best balanced with a pencil skirt or skinny jeans. A more slimline silhouette on the bottom will emphasize your shape. You can wear more voluminous bottoms, like bootleg pants and A-line skirts, with more delicate knit turtlenecks. These turtlenecks will also work with the same bottoms your cable knit turtlenecks will, though. Petite women like Audrey Hepburn can show off their feminine frames with this look.

For something really different, try wearing a lightweight block-colored women's turtleneck from JCPenney underneath your favorite spring dress. Add thick tights, and you've got a look that can take a well-loved sundress through to fall and winter. Discover a range of traditional women's turtlenecks at JCPenney.
