Call us crazy, but lately we’ve had our eyes on one of the season’s most tough-to-tackle tops: the turtleneck. Audacious, you say? Perhaps! This classic staple has graced the necks of countless style icons (think: Audrey Hepburn, Marilyn Monroe,), and we've found some equally amazing modern day inspiration to help get your turtleneck out of the closet and onto the streets!

Who thought turtleneck could be street cool? At least not like this! This look is simplistic, but big on style. You too can take the Plain Jane route and keep your look about just one or two statement accessories and let the outfit speak for itself.

The next time someone tells you turtlenecks are boring, show them this. The right pair of shoes, bag and a rocking colour combo like this and you're dressed to kill.

Turtlenecks can be really fashionable, if you find the right one and style it right. Take some inspiration here.

This one has a retro feel to it: Wear it if you want to make a statement but stay comfy too. It's strong, but not too strong. The best part, it's got unisex written all over it.
