Today I am happy to show you how to style a pink turtleneck, jeans and white combat boots. I have recently jumped on the white combat boots train! I know what you are thinking…you are in your 60’s and you are wearing a pair of combat boots? Yes! Yes I am! How do you style white combat boots? The key to pulling off this look is to balance the feminine and masculine elements and to accessorize wisely. These boots also happen to be perfect for this winter season too!
The great thing about both the pink turtleneck and the white combat boots is that they are available on my daughters Poshmark site! Here is a link to the brand new combat boots and here is a link to the pink turtleneck sweater. (*Update the sweater has been sold! ) But she has lots of other sweaters.
The boots are all brand new never worn and are available in multiple sizes. They are the perfect pair for me because they have a feminine look to the with a rounded toe. I will be sharing different outfits in the coming weeks wearing these boots.
How to begin styling the pink turtleneck
I really love this pink turtleneck it has a luxurious feel to it and I love the fact that the shoulder seams hit my shoulders instead of a drop sleeve.
The drop sleeve just makes my broad shoulders look even bigger.
To create a layered look I started with an oversized white blouse. (ignore the wrinkles…I was trying on lots of sweaters) Seriously I don’t know how fashion bloggers make their clothes look perfect every time. I am showing reality here at Karins Kottage or should I say Karins Kloset haha.
The white blouse mixed with the turtle neck is such a great combo.
You may remember some of my other white blouse outfit ideas here and here. A white blouse is an absolute must for anyone’s wardrobe. Don’t you agree? Mine is from banana republic.
Just pop the white collar up so it sticks out of the top of the turtleneck to add a little interest at the neckline. Then I usually pull the sweater sleeves up a bit to show the cuff of the blouse. Leaving some of white blouse showing underneath is a fun casual look. Doing these little things is the easiest way to break up the solid color and adds interest and texture to the outfit.
You will notice in the photo below I do not have the white blouse peeking out from the bottom. It is not a great look. I am short waisted so the sweater is just a bit too long.
To break it up I tucked the bottom of the sweater up a bit to show the blouse tails.
I have more fashion posts at the bottom of this post make sure to check them out 🙂
Ripped jeans with the pink turtleneck and combat boots
Start by choosing a pair of high-waisted jeans that fit well and are comfortable to wear. These particular jeans are made from a stretchy denim material, so they will mold to your body and provide a flattering fit.
Get a more casual look with jeans that have a little ripping at the knee. These ankle length jeans work well with these lace-up combat boots. I want to show off the black laces against the white boot.
My daughter has a pair of ripped knee jeans on her Poshmark site here.
The soft feminine pink turtleneck against the ripped jeans counter acts each other in a nice way. Kind of a ying yang thing going on.
My jeans are Nicole Miller New York high rise ankle skinny jeans. I bought them from Tjmaxx last year. I found some similar ones that you can see at the bottom of post in SHOP SIMILAR FASHION.
A pair of black jeans or a pair of dark jeans would be a good look as well. You could pair the jeans with an oversized sweater.
White combat boots with jeans and turtleneck
At first I didn’t know if I would like combat boots especially white boots. I mean really who would’ve thought back in the day that white combat boots would become a fashion staple. Let alone for a woman in her 60’s haha! Never in a million years would I have thought I would be wearing a pair of military boots BUT guess what I LOVE THEM!
The fashion world has convinced me that these winter boots can be part of cute outfits! There are so many different styles but I like the classic combat boots the best that lace-up.
They are really great this winter because it has been so cold and snowy! Plus they are great for plain old rainy days too. It has been very rare this winter that I have been able to wear flats or even my sneakers because it has just been too cold.
These white combat boots are really quite cute on and keep my feet nice and warm. These boots take my pink turtleneck and Jeans to a new bold look.
They make me feel stylish, young and maybe even a little bit spicy haha. At 62 that is an awesome feeling!
I recently came across this darling lady who is going through cancer but has an Instagram account where she shares her fun bright colored fashion. Her name on Instagram is Cancer Fashionista. You should follow her as she is very inspirational and her fashion is fabulous!
Pink turtleneck blue jeans and combat boots with a black coat
To finish off my fun cute outfit I decided to wear my long black coat. I bought the coat while traveling in Italy because I was freezing back in November. This is a must-have classic piece for any winter wardrobe, as it will keep you warm and also add a touch of sophistication to the outfit.
I also think a pink turtle neck and jeans are a fun addition to any wardrobe. When paired with white combat boots, they create a bold and edgy look.
The black coat not only looks fab but it keeps me toasty warm here at home in Utah.
I asked my daughter if she had a long black coat on her Poshmark site but she did not. She does have this adorable classic tan plaid trench coat for only $49! Brand new with tags! It is a women’s size 2 but she says it is very roomy.
There are different ways to style this look in cold weather. In place of the long black coat you could try a leather moto jacket or an oversized denim jacket mixed with a graphic t-shirt.
I am going to try wearing my white combat boots with a pair of wide leg jeans to see what that looks like. It may be too much of the 60’s look for me but who knows may I will be surprised and love it.
Not sure about trying the boots with long dresses but they could look cute with midi dresses and some black leggings.
Pop on a pink coat
After I had taken all the pictures for this post I looked over and saw my favorite pink coat. I decided to slip it on over the pink turtleneck and BAM! Another fun look just by adding a different colored coat.
Yeah….you can just call me fashion girl from now on 😉 haha
I would encourage you to look through your closets and start with one clothing item. Maybe it’s a green or blue turtleneck or a red or brown coat or a fun pair of boots, whatever it is work from there adding different items you already own to create a new fun outfit for yourself.
If you need something fresh and new pop over to my daughters Poshmark shop. You can see some of her items at the bottom of this post. There are some serious deals at a smidgeon of the original price. Madeline not only has adult clothes for men and women but also for children. Make sure to go check it out.
Accessories for my new look
The best way and easy way to accessorize is with a scarf. A black and white plaid scarf with pom poms was just what I needed to complete my look.
My other accessories are very simple. Silver hoop earrings are my personal choice. Cross-body bags are always fashionable and are one my favorite ways to wear a purse so my hands are free.
One important thing is that fashion should make you feel awesome, give you confidence and something to have fun with.
I hope my fashion tips on how to style a pink turtleneck jeans and white combat boots inspires you try something new.

Karin, you look absolutely fabulous! This is totally my kind of outfit. I have lots of pairs of combat boots and I adore them. I also love wearing shirts underneath sweaters so that the shirt ‘tails’ show, as well some of the sleeves. It really does add interest. I love the look with both coats too. Gorgeous!
Sally in St Paul says
The juxtaposition of edgy/masculine and soft/feminine is so great here – perfectly balanced. The styling details like the popped collar really make a difference!
Karins Kottage says
Thank you Sally! So nice of you to say this 🙂
I bought a pair of lug sole cream booties this year so I really don’t need another pair of I sure love these white combat boots! It looks so cute with the pink sweater: the whole outfit is such winner. I found that as I get older (I’m 47), I am having more and more fun with my clothes and like to try different things.
Karins Kottage says
You are 47 years young my friend! I am going on 63 this year! The combat boots are a really fun new shoe style for me. Fashion is fun and it is nice to hear that you are having fun and trying new things 🙂
Love it all! I have a pink sweater I just got for Christmas that is very similar and I struggle with the odd length and fit… not long enough or loose enough for leggings but a bit too long to hit at the waist. I do love the material though and your post gave me another idea for style it.
Barbara at Mantel and Table says
You are just darling Karin! This is a great fun look, and the combat boots really add to it! If not in our 60’s, when!?! 😊
Karins Kottage says
Right! Yes I say wear fun unique things right now. Why wait! Thank you so much for your sweet comment. It means a lot!
Looks fine on you but not so much for me; just not my style. At 69 I look for comfort more than style and to think I used to be a fashionista in my younger days. Granted comfort and style would be welcome if only I could find it.
Karins Kottage says
This is actually a super comfy outfit. The boots are surprisingly very comfortable as well. They have a good arch support for me. They feel lightweight like I could walk around in them all day. You never know until you try. That is the great thing I have found recently that things that I think I won’t like or be comfortable in…actually are. Thanks so much for commenting. Have fun experimenting with fashion. 🙂
I love all the looks ! I never thought about wearing a blouse under a turtleneck before. You and I have a very similar look and taste in clothing. I’m 64 and I wear what makes me feel happy.
Karins Kottage says
Thank you Mary 🥰 You made my day! Fashion should be fun right? I love that we share similar looks! Being in our 60’s is such a fun time to try out new fun looks 😁. Let me know if you try the blouse under the turtleneck.
You do look cute. Combat boots aren’t for me. Mine are in a truck in the attic with some of my uniforms from my Army days. I chuckle when I see how this utility boots have become trendy!
Karins Kottage says
Linda… I bet you get a chuckle because you actually wore real army boots! It is funny how these boots have become so popular. I remember my dad having a big huge pair of black ones sitting in his closet. I am grateful these are not heavy and that they have a feminine touch to them.
Thank you for your service to our country! ❤️
