Turtlenecks are the ideal winter staple: They're a scarf and a sweater, rolled into one. Nothing is more satisfying than hiding your face in the cozy knit collar when confronted with a chilly gust of wind (or an awkward social run-in). The frumpy fit that comes along with the oversized silhouette, however, is not so cute.
Is it too much to ask to hit the cold-weather trifecta: a warm knit for layering, a roomy neckline in lieu of a scarf, and a formfitting shape that doesn't give away just how many layers are piled beneath? We think not, and we found 17 turtlenecks that are as comfy as they are chic. You can wear them out solo, or layer them under other choice knits. As for which one you should buy, the race is neck and neck.
