Coats? Check. Cozy sweaters? Check. Tights? Check. If you can mark the previous items off, chances are you're well equipped for braving the fall-into-winter weather. But you'd be remiss to forget that one timeless, simple staple that pairs with anything and everything in your closet is a black turtleneck. This trusty layering piece is like your second skin in the cooler months when extra layering is required. It sneaks under dresses that aren't exactly winter-appropriate, tucks under a sweater for extra warmth, and can work solo with your favorite high-rise jeans. In short, all your outfits suddenly become black-turtleneck outfits over the next six months.
Need proof? We have 15 outfits ahead that show just how versatile the basic is. We even included where you can score one (or more) for yourself, so read on.
These looks only scratch the surface. Feel free to get creative with the ultimate layering piece.
