Tights are great for keeping our legs warm under dresses or skirts. Wearing camis under our sweaters does more than just prevent them from itching at our skin. But our all-time favorite winter layering piece? The turtleneck. These thin knits were practically tailor-made to be worn under slip dresses, button-up shirts, transitional jumpsuits and cozy pullovers, adding a pop of color or pattern and offering just the right amount of warmth (especially for our necks, duh!). Here are 22 of the best turtlenecks to buy ASAP and layer all the way through to spring.
