Regardless of how you define your personal style, we're willing to bet there's a simple fitted turtleneck lying somewhere in your closet. This style staple can serve as the base layer for a pair of jeans, tailored trousers, pleated skirts, and much more. It can be worn underneath button downs, leather jackets, and crop tops. Minimal in silhouette, turtleneck tee's can also be obtained for little financial investment, then mixed in with more elevated pieces—or simply paired denim cutoffs. Below, we've recreated three looks from three stylish tastemakers, all of which feature today's pièce de résistance: a turtleneck.

Stylist Dione Davis has effectively created a monochrome base layer between her white shirt and cargo pants. The deeper brown hues of the jacket and shoes only add more depth to the elevated ensemble.
