At Marcella, we’re in love with the black turtleneck. Whether she's sheer or opaque, the black turtleneck is for us THE capsule wardrobe staple due to her versatility and effortless style quotient. Dress her down for the casual, about-town minimalist outfit. Dress her up for the automatically elevated formal look. Or wear her as a layer to keep you cozy.

Meet Our Cara Turtleneck Top
Timeless and head-turning at once, the Cara Top is a reimagined take on the classic long sleeve turtleneck top. Fully covered feels lighter than air with our premium European jersey construction, which we've made sheer at the neckline and sleeves for an unexpected hint of skin. Cara's high-stretch fits just so in all the right places and she's breathable enough to layer across seasons.
Five Styling Ideas For The Black TurtleneckCARA TOP SHOWN STYLED WITH: VINCI PANTS | MEER LUG SOLE BOOTS | VANESSA HOOP EARRINGS
#1: Downtown Cool
The Cara Top perfectly offsets these vegan leather pants to give you an edgy, yet timeless look for serious street-style points. Paired with our Meer Lug Sole Boots—made from genuine Italian leather, the perfect combination of Chelsea boots and combat boots—this look isn't classic workwear, per se, yet still works in the office as well as she does on the street. We love a workleisure moment!
CARA TOP | VINCI PANTS | RAPHAELA BOYFRIEND SHIRT | MEER LUG SOLE BOOTS | MARCELLA BASEBALL HAT | VANESSA HOOP EARRINGS
#2: Easy Like Sunday Morning
When it comes to a layered look, bid farewell to the bulky vest your great-aunt championed, and swap in a crisp bit of tailoring with a menswear-inspired button down. By pairing a black turtleneck with a boyfriend shirt like the Raphaela, you can create a stunning casual wear look that turns heads. Get extra style points with laid-back accessories—like a dad hat and a canvas tote—for the perfect high-low mix.
#3: It Girl
This look is about day-to-night dressing for an effortlessly cool feel all day long, and beyond. When a sleek turtleneck is paired with a black midi-skirt like the Alma and Carnegie Knee-High Boots, you can create an essential look that’s as perfect for lunch with friends as a night out on the town. Our Claude Two-Way Bag is the ideal accessory—wear it with the shoulder strap for day or carry it as a clutch for cocktail hour.
#4: Blue Jean Dream
A black turtleneck paired with jeans and ankle booties is about as classic as you can get and the ultimate example of minimalist dressing. We love Cara styled with light-wash denim and these narrow-heeled boots for a fail-safe outfit option.
#5: Cozy Cool
Want to layer on a little coziness? Add our chunky knit pullover, the Audrey Sweater, over your It-Girl look and you have the ultimate outfit for transitional weather. The knee-high boots and skirt pairing elevate (and add a twist of edge to) this sweater-weather combo.
She's A Hero Piece
Nothing SCREAMS chic more than a black turtleneck for women. Whether you want to dress the piece up for the office or keep it laid-back (possibly with layers?), a timeless black turtleneck is the true essential for any capsule wardrobe. Call us biased (which, yes, we are...) but we think our Cara Top is a great pick—she's a classic with a twist of edge, making her a true Marcella must-have.
Hi there These are beautiful outfits and I am a fan of your capsule collections since discovering you this last year! I am curious if these vegan 🌱 leather pants were being sold under a different name, around the last holiday or just a few months ago. I love the style suggestions here and was thinking wonderful vegan pants, but could be best with vegan leather boots to match! Why not make it all vegan I would love a vegan crescent bag or crossbody as well- to match these outfits! Great style and lovely model. I wouldn’t mind supporting your brand more online as an ambassador wearing your vegan clothing ! Love the minimalist style ! Keep offering that for your earth 🌍 and animal loving customers!:)
