Victoria Beckham's turtleneck was a bit more fitted so as not to take away from the designer's full skirt, which appropriately matched the material of her ribbed sweater. The illusion of vertical stripes and her tall suede boots made her outfit feel streamlined and clean.
Mary-Kate Olsen always makes the most of her turtleneck by employing the high-fashion hair tuck. If you want to try out a similar look, aim for designs that are loose-fitting. A silk style is the perfect option, and it appears totally luxe.
If you thought turtlenecks weren't sexy, Kendall Jenner's ensemble will change your mind at the drop of a hat. The cold-shoulder detail on her long-sleeved Donna Karan dress was instantly eye-catching, so she swept her hair away to let the design take center stage.
Emmy Rossum's outfit was right on point for the holiday season — when you're visiting your family for a home-cooked meal and plan to cozy up on the couch for hours. Find a soft cashmere turtleneck in a neutral color, and throw on a blazer or an embellished cardigan for a little more structure. Stay smart by opting for ballet flats and movable jeans.
Katie Holmes brought an edgy yet casual twist to her oversize sweater. Choose a style with a foldover neckline, and throw on a few leather accoutrements, like your moto jacket and go-to satchel. When you complete the look with boyfriend jeans and heels, you'll be releasing your inner street style star.
Kim Kardashian's olive green Kardashian Kollection dress is the perfect foundation for a longer trench coat or sweater. Play with proportions in a body-hugging knee-length dress like hers, and look for a subtle, low-rise turtleneck that won't distract from the rest of your outfit.
You'd never think to pair a textured, frill-adorned midi skirt with a chunky knit, but that's why Olivia Palermo is truly a style genius.
