The humble turtleneck sweater has taken on a life of its own lately, becoming a firm winter staple. Thanks to it being a favoured style of both Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle, it's firmly in the spotlight. Be it cashmere, merino wool, fine-knit, chunky, or ribbed, there are soooo many options for turtle neck wearers this winter.
The appeal of a turtle neck is endless due to its versatile nature. Need an extra layer to keep warm under your floral dress? Reach for your roll neck. Want something to pop under your dungarees or a jumpsuit for an extra dimension? Whack on your turtleneck. They're also perfect for those days you just CBA to put a proper outfit together; simply pull one over your head, pair with some high-waisted jeans, trainers and a coat and you're good to go.
If you're wondering where you can pick up your winter knitwear, you won't be short on options. From affordable high street chains such as H&M and Zara to mid-range stores like Arket, there's something for every budget around. When it comes to picking your style, I would say opt for the best quality material you can afford. Cashmere may be pricey, but it'll keep you snug all winter long and will last you for years to come (just remember not to wash it with your regular load).

I'll be honest: this mohair wool fabric doesn't look that enticing, but it's such a cool, gorgeous design, I'm very tempted to just throw on a long-sleeve jersey underneath to save my skin and be on my way. Just imagine this with a pair of skinny black trousers and heeled boots. Eternally chic.
