The turtleneck has been reinterpreted so many different ways through the years, but one thing remains constant: it's a foundation piece for your wardrobe. No matter what details come into play — is yours ribbed? Is it thin enough to layer beneath a button-down? Does it have cutouts or an avant-garde shape that classifies it as more of a statement piece? — the turtleneck is a basic you start with. Lately, we've adopted ultra-cropped variations and sheer, mesh styles into our closets in an effort to channel the '90s, but there are so many other interesting ways to wear and layer your standard turtleneck if you haven't been sweater shopping in a while. All the outfits we curated below are on trend for the season, and you can pull most of them off with clothing you already own. Trust, no matter your style, there's a turtleneck look for you, so click ahead for some fresh ideas.
