Yes, we understand. The weather is also making us sluggish and wish we could bring home with us anywhere so we can Netflix and snuggle whenever we want—kinda like what inspired this how-to guide to wearing a turtleneck top.

But hey, look at the bright side: There’s an excuse to wear high-necked pieces in our tropical country without getting the side-eye, semi-thanks to the series of typhoons who can’t seem to quit entering our country.

Here are our best picks on how to wear the turtleneck, whether for a day affair, for a night out, or going out of the country.

Rebel revival

For school or for any other everyday wear: Learn a thing or two on breaking your usual all-black rule by layering a boldly printed shirt atop your turtleneck.

 

Casual encounter
