Let's go back to basics. Everyone wants to look chic in the winter while staying warm, and the black turtleneck is Marie Claire fashion editors' favorite way to stay stylish and bundled up through the season. Investment pieces like this one should be high quality and stand the test of time, and our all-time favorite black turtleneck, the Wolford turtleneck bodysuit, is worth the price tag with its second-skin feel and seamless knitting technique that ensures a flawless, smooth fit. Here's how to wear it every day without your coworkers even noticing you're recycling it.
1. The Neutral Look
In a wardrobe rut? Go back to the classics—the essential pieces that you've built your wardrobe on. The white trouser, perfectly roomy cardigan, sturdy Chelsea boot, and slightly slouchy wool coat will never let you down.
2. The Effortless Look
Wear this casual, cool ensemble while out running errands or enjoying lunch with friends. Button the flannel to the top or keep it unbuttoned for relaxed weekend vibes.
3. The Paris-Inspired Look
An off-duty wardrobe doesn't have to lack sophistication. A polished black turtleneck pairs perfectly with a pair of high-waisted chinos and a loafer. Parisian chic, oui?
4. The Workplace Look
Make this turtleneck work for your in-office wardrobe. Style it with a blazer for the boardroom and wear it alone for dinner and movie.
5. The Big Meeting Look
This black bodysuit alleviates the need for tucking in yet another layer. Close the deal with a streamlined black pant and lady-like jacket
6. The Going-Out Look
Transition a warm weather dress to a going-out staple with a form-fitting black bodysuit. While the mix-and-match possibilities are endless, we love to punch it up with an on-trend animal print.
7. The Fancy Dinner Look
Need a solution for your favorite sheer blouse? Pop on this multi-tasking turtleneck to paint the town red.
