What is it about a turtleneck that makes it so gratifying to wear? Is it the automatic face-framing effect? The opportunity for a nonchalant hair-tuck? The air of chic mid-century intellectualism it bestows? Whatever the reasons, we’re glad the throat-swaddling style is firmly in fashion right now, because it means more options for us, from paper-thin versions perfect for layering to chunky knit sweaters that engulf you chin to thigh.

Also manifold are the ways to style the turtleneck: It can be a practical base underneath a shift or jumper dress, a layer of warmth peeking out under a button-down or crewneck sweater, or a showpiece on its own. To show off a few of these styling moves, I enlisted three coworkers to demonstrate how they would style some of the season’s best turtlenecks, including the wonderfully glitzy DVF version you see above.

"I’m a huge fan of turtlenecks—I’m wearing one as we speak, and I have another week’s worth at home. I wore this particular turtleneck (of the sweater-dress variety) with wide-leg, cropped black pants and my trusty Kenneth Cole white sneakers, which have gotten a ton of airplay this year. (They work with everything and come in several colors!) I’d wear this outfit as easily to work as I would to a weekend brunch—it’s versatile, and chic, and super comfortable."—Bibi Deitz, news editor

"I haven’t worn a turtleneck since elementary school when it was part of the uniform during winter months (#privateschoolprobs), but I’m down with the return of this staple. A thin black turtleneck is a great layering piece to easily extend the life of warm-weather clothes like a camisole or summer dress—especially if you’re like me and still not mentally prepared for cold weather."—Nicole Price, SheKnows campaign manager

“I love a good turtleneck (mostly because there is nothing chicer than ‘accidental’ turtleneck hair, IMHO). But if I’m being fully honest, I tend to dress like a hobbit so this was a major fashion risk for me, being that it was so form-fitting and also green. I paired it with a simple leather skirt, suede, over-the-knee boots, and a cool belt just to give it a little something extra. Since this DVF number is such a festive, sparkly green, I thought it was a perfect holiday look with a bright red lip. 'Tis the season to be merry!”—Christina Grasso, social media manager
