The black turtleneck, its beauty is in its simplicity, its versatility and its innate ability to slim the body and frame the face. Adorned by some of the most celebrated style icons of our time, Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn and Jackie O. A flattering layering piece that transitions effortlessly from season to season. When choosing this closet staple, look for high quality fabrics such as cashmere and merino that stretch without losing their shape.

Here are my top picks this season:

Banana Republic Merino Wool Turtleneck

A classic fit with price tag to match. Added bonus it’s machine washable.

Lord & Taylor Turtleneck

Elevate your look in luxurious 100% cashmere.

Nordstrom Signature Cashmere Turtleneck

Ultra-soft, lightweight and slightly fitted making it the perfect closet staple.
