The other day I walked into a local boutique and after browsing for a moment, I was approached by an associate. “Is there anything I can help you find today?” she asked. “Yes, actually. Do you have any turtlenecks?” My completely normal (in my mind, at least) question was met with bewilderment. “Uhh, no” she said. Whatever. Turtlenecks are da bomb!

I was searching for a turtleneck because I tried one on at a high end store, but couldn’t shell out nearly $200 in good conscience for a plain black shirt. Don’t get me wrong, it was incredibly soft and pretty, but I mean, that’s a lot of money for something I’ll probably end up spilling wine on or something. Plus, I just knew I’d be able to find a thin black turtleneck somewhere. So my quest for the perfect (affordable) turtleneck began. Here are some pretty amazing ones I found, from affordable turtleneck tees to luxe, high-end sweater options:


I ended up buying 3 of the Old Navy turtlenecks. The thin material is very similar to the $200 version and I was able to get 3 for about 20% the price of one of the original. Talk about a major score!

Do you like turtlenecks for fall & winter?
