Layer Up With The Best Turtlenecks

The humble turtleneck may be considered nothing more than a wintertime workhorse, but thanks to a few thoughtful details, labels are giving shoppers reason to hone in on some standout picks.

Instead of standard knits, brands such as Madewell and DvF are injecting a bit of sparkly fun into the mix, adding a major dose of of glam to something that’s usually seen as a practical way to keep warm. Is ribbed more your pleasure? Head to Everlane. The cult-favorite line has one of the best chunky knits out there. And for shoppers looking for drawstrings, colorblocking, and other details, like high-low hems and split sides, we’ve gathered together our favorite standouts.

Hoping to add some spice to the sometimes-dowdy turtle? Try slipping a camisole on over your knit for a shot of nostalgia and ’90s style. Trying to layer a turtleneck under your jackets can be a pain, so try a sleeveless one or opt for a thinner, lighter-weight piece to keep your layers as thin as possible. And thanks to the sweater’s trademark collar, you can skip out on the scarf, so try some statement earrings or a show-stopping necklace to add a flash of fun.
