Ask Belle: Black Turtleneck Sweaters

Nov 17, 2014

Dear Belle,

Do you have any suggestions as to where I can find the perfect black turtleneck for the upcoming cold winter? I am looking for one that is snug at the neck (no cowls), thin enough to wear under a sweater but not so sheer that you can’t wear it under an open cardigan or jacket. No wool please; I’m allergic.

Thanks! Maria in Chicago

Non-wool turtleneck sweaters are difficult to find.  However, I did locate a couple…

Ralph Lauren Silk Cotton Turtleneck ($110)

This Ralph Lauren sweater meets your requirements.  Jones New York also offers a cotton turtleneck sweater.  You might also try a supima cotton turtleneck from Land’s End.

Ann Taylor Everyday Turtleneck ($70, petite)

Prefer wool?  This Ann Taylor sweater is a great place to start.  I also like this Gap Turtleneck sweater.  And Target has a $49 basic turtleneck.

Looking for turtleneck fit tips?  Full-length sleeves look best on most people.  Don’t buy your turtlenecks too tight; you’ll look like you’re being suffocated.  If you want to wear a necklace, try a long pendant.  It will lengthen the look.

    Gap Outlet! I found the perfect one at Gap Outlet – ribbed, thin enough to fit under a jacket and long enough to work over pants! I too suffer from the dreaded wool allergy, and this one is cotton with a hint of spandex, nothing else. Note, this isn’t the Eversoft one which has wool and nylon blend. I don’t think they carry it at normal Gap stores – it may be an outlet only style.

The Find: A Striped Tee

Without question, the most worn item in my wardrobe is a black-and-white striped tee. I wear it in winter under sweaters, in spring with white jeans, in summer with black shorts. I’ve been wearing the same one for years (it’s the best). But they don’t make it anymore. So here are some options for replacement.
