It was only a few years ago that turtlenecks were one of my enemies. I hated how they looked and felt, like I had something stuck in my throat or as Mitch Hedburg would say, “like being strangled by a really weak guy, all day.” But I finally got to the style and let me tell you, turtlenecks have a moment. From real royal families to fictitious “royal” families like the Roys on Succession, turtlenecks are a fall staple for a chic look without too much effort. We’ve rounded up some of the best turtlenecks to give your next fall outfit a new silhouette.
Organic Cotton Embossed Turtleneck T-Shirt
Waffle knit is all the rage this year (has it really gone out of style?) And this Everlane turtleneck gives you all the comforts you expect from a long undergarment but worn on its own.
HEATTECH Women’s Turtleneck T-Shirt
HEATTECH is one of the best things Uniqlo makes and it’s my personal choice for the winter season. It’s stretchy, comfortable, and perfect to wear alone or in layers.
Splendid 1×1 Ribbed Long Sleeve Turtleneck T-Shirt
Made from a blend of cotton and rayon, this breathable turtleneck is one you’ll want to keep. It’s a bit stretchy but not too thin, which is a fine line that some brands don’t realize.
Cotton turtleneck t-shirt
Is there a basic that Everlane can’t do big? 100% cotton and lightweight, wear it as a shirt with jeans and a blazer or layer it under a chunky sweater for maximum warmth.
Amazon Essentials Women’s Plus Size Long Sleeve Stand Collar
This lightweight stand-neck option is for those who find their way into the world of turtlenecks but don’t want to dive into it. The cotton / modal / polyester blend is soft and durable enough to be worn as its own diaper or under a sweater for extra warmth.
Lands’ End Women’s Supima Cotton Long Sleeve Turtleneck
Made from 100% Supima cotton, the soft neck can be worn, folded or crumpled for a more casual look. The slim fit hugs your body without snagging, making it ideal for wearing under sweaters in the winter or on its own.
You can’t really go wrong with a classic. LLBean’s affinity for quality and affordability gives you a wide range of options and this Pima cotton turtleneck is at the top of the pack. Seriously, it has a 4.4 star rating with over 1000 reviews.
