Do you struggle with transforming your outfits from day to night? Don’t worry, CF is here to help turn that daily annoyance into a fun challenge. Class to Night Out focuses on one piece per week, and aims to help you take your look from study sessions in the library to dancing the night away.

Kids of the ’90s, rejoice! Everything that we wore (and loved) in those days is back in style, and here at CF, we couldn’t be more excited about it. Leggings, overalls, flannel, and plaids of all forms are chic once more.

The most surprising addition to this trend? Turtleneck sweaters. I remember hating these back in the day – fidgety kids just do not like having their necks covered. But nowadays, I think they’re totally awesome. Perfect for those chilly days where you’re feeling a little moody.

This week, I’ll be showing you how to style a ’90s classic a black turtleneck – for both a day of class and a night out. Read on if you’re ready for a little wardrobe inspiration!

(Sidenote: if you’re looking for more ways to wear a turtleneck, we recently wrote a whole post on the subject, so be sure to check that out for more outfit ideas!)

Black Turtleneck: Class

Sweater, Jeggings, Boots, Bag, Cuff, Earrings

For a chic-yet-studious daytime ensemble, ditch the denim and pair your sweater with a pair of olive green knit jeggings. Next, add a pair of black-and-brown Chelsea boots for a super cozy winter look that incorporates mixed neutrals. Accessorize with a sturdy brown hobo bag and a pair of fleur-de-lis earrings for a girly vibe, then complete the outfit with a blinged-out leopard cuff.

Sweater, Skirt, Boots, Clutch, Necklace, Earrings

Create a super glamorous nighttime look by pairing your sweater with a beaded mini skirt. I’m obsessed with these skirts – they add so much drama to your ensemble and minimize the need for jewelry! Add a little more sparkle with a black-and-gold statement necklace and matching amber studs. Complete this getup with classic accessories: a chic black clutch and ankle booties make this outfit truly sophisticated.

  1. I have a marle grey cashmere V-neck sweater I wear over a skinny rib black turtleneck and bootleg jeans that is comfortable, stylish and practical.

    Most of all, it keeps me toasty warm 🙂

  2. Initially I thought that I would never wear a turtleneck because I hated them growing up.
    This has made me rethink them… especially the going out ensemble – it looks nice and warm tehe

  3. I laughed when I saw the first outfit because I’m actually wearing it right now! The only difference is I’m wearing knee-high brown boots. It keeps me extra warm and (in my opinion), brings the outfit just one step up. This outfit takes almost no effort and is ridiculously comfortable! Plus, you can’t go wrong with hunter green jeggings! Not only are they in my favorite color, but I get compliments on them all the time.
