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.
