1. The lightweight version.
Funnel collar top, $50, zara.com.
Styling tip: If you're looking to use a turtleneck as the backbone of a layered look, choose a lightweight, body-conscious knit, such as this one from Zara (above). Think of it as a new version of a button-down shirt. It's a versatile layering piece that works under pretty much anything. Try it beneath a summer dress for a seasonless update.
