This Red Ochre colored turtleneck can go really well with white denim or, even black ones. Pair it with light lipstick and some simple antic jewelry and you would make heads turn.

Orange is evergreen. And it looks superb if paired with a dark color like that of Black or, Blue. A pair of knee high boots, some simple jewelry and you are ready for whatever occasion it is.

Skirts also go really well with Turtle Necks. Wear a dark colored blazer and a light colored skirt along with a nice contrasting colored legging and you have the perfect combination.

I really liked the heels that this model is wearing.

This is the simplest of all combinations. Light colored turtlenecks, an army colored loose jacket and pairing it with Blue denim can give you the perfect look yet keep it simple. Dark sunglasses will add to your overall looks.
