You've heard it said countless times before that in order to build a timeless and versatile wardrobe, you have to stop splurging on trends and start investing in basic pieces. But let's face it, buying a bold, printed dress is way more fun than spending your week's worth of allowance on a plain black top no one will probably even notice. Plus, how can a basic top be fun and fashionable anyway? We say, with a few styling tricks up your sleeve and a whole lot of creativity, the possibilities are endless! Scroll down as we prove to you that a basic top like a black turtleneck can be bold and non-boring, too.

Say what you want about girls who loves dressing in black, but you have to admit, an all-black OOTD is effortlessly chic and can create the illusion of a statuesque height, too! Make the traditional black turtleneck fun and almost brazen by wearing it with a black maxi skirt with a fearless slit on the side. End the look with a pair of pointy slides for a sleek finish.


Instead of wearing your black turtleneck on its own, use it as a cool layering piece instead! Throwing on a vibrant dress over the muted classic is an easy way to pack a fashionable punch without exerting much effort.

Instead of wearing your slip dress over your black turtleneck, step up your layering game by wearing it underneath instead! Choose a slip dress with intricate details on the hem for an unexpected detail to your OOTD.
