Turtlenecks can be tough to accessorize. They cover so much of your top half it's hard to figure out what else to throw on top of them that won't overwhelm your look. If you want to make your turtleneck look a little bit more interesting, you'll be happy to know that there are a few cool ways to take your look up a notch.

Add a Faux Fur Vest

Faux fur is incredibly trendy. If you're looking to make your turtleneck even warmer, top it off with a fab faux fur vest. It makes your look totally chic, fashion-forward and incredibly comfy. If you're going to go so warm up to, slip on a pair of boots to make your look warm on bottom too.

Add a Necklace

You can pull off a necklace with your turtleneck that'll totally work with your look. The key is to get the proportions right. Try a long delicate necklace that won't compete with space up top with your turtleneck. Or, if you want something bolder, throw on a chunky statement necklace. Just make sure it doesn't sit right on your turtleneck, as that can be a little bit uncomfortable.

Delicate Earrings

If you want to go for a more simple and understated look, a pair of pretty and delicate earrings are just the ticket. Try thin gold or silver hoops or a simple chandelier earring to keep your look a bit more muted. Studs also work well. Pearls are perfectly elegant. Try a tiny pair or make it a little more fun with oversized ones.

Slip on a Scarf

A cute scarf helps to accent your turtleneck without taking anything away from it. Try sticking with thinner scarves and don't tie them tight around your neck. Instead just let your scarf hang over your neck. If your turtleneck is in a monochromatic shade, pick a scarf in a bright color or cool print to add a little something extra.
