Stephanie Thornton Plymale, CEO of Heritage School of Interior Design, Best Selling Author and lifestyle blogger, was recently featured in The Girlfriend in an article titled,“The Best Winter Turtleneks to Keep You Snug — And Oh — So Stylish!” Here are Stephanie’s favorite turtlenecks to keep you cozy this Winter!

Tissue Turtleneck in Fall Garden Floral from J.CREW

I am loving turtlenecks for Winter. The possibilities are endless. This little gem from J.CREW comes in a green floral and doesn’t need ironing, we love that! Who has time for wrinkles? This lightweight turtleneck can be layered with a blazer, shirt or shacket.

Gather Tee from Free People

Dress up your black jeans with this black and white check turtleneck from Free People. This one sports a vintage vibe which is on trend in fashion and design for Winter. Stretchy, lightweight, comfy and perfect to layer up.

H&M Cropped Turtleneck Sweater

This crop knit sweater from H&M can be layered with a comfy tee and a pair of high waisted jeans or even a mini skirt. Once the temperature drops you can add leggings and boots for this stylish look. We love the modest price point for this wardrobe basic.

Side-Button Turtleneck Vest from Anthropologie

I’m loving this truly timeless staple. This cozy-chic, chunky knit piece in bronze is sublime with a pair of pleather leggings or even tucked into a mini skirt. To evoke a seasonal voguish look, I suggest throwing on your favorite knee-high suede boots.

The Pima Micro-Rib Turtleneck from EVERLANE

Alicia McCaslin of Tullebox says this cotton micro-rib sweater is a terrific wardrobe staple, perfect for those who find cashmere and wool too warm or have allergic reactions to animal fibers. Use it to support your seasonal “statement piece,” she advises.

Turtleneck Knitted Sweater from Mango

Channel Jackie Kennedy with this iconic short-sleeve sweater, challenges McCaslin. This stylish sweater is available in three colors, and looks fantastic with ivory denim or your favorite pair of corduroy pants.
