CNN —  

It’s officially fall. And time to welcome back one of fall’s official uniform elements: the turtleneck. Like the white T-shirt in summer, a turtleneck in any color of the rainbow and more — under a blazer, as a layering piece for warmth or proudly standing on its own — is a staple we can’t seem to get enough of. Simple and comfortable, it makes both an obligatory Zoom call or a walk in the park with a friend a little bit more polished. Start scrolling for our favorite options for $50 or less.
