From the beatnik era to Steve Jobs' habitual donning of this staple piece, the turtleneck's place in fashion and pop culture has been storied. Though it looks good as a stand-alone item, the power of the turtleneck lies in the layering opportunities it affords — whether combined with outerwear pieces or worn under a loose-fitting tee or camp collar shirt.

As fall sets in, layering should be a central part of your styling repertoire. That means that your wardrobe should feature a strong foundation of roll-neck sweaters for the coming months. Luckily, a host of brands, from Stone Island to Jil Sander, are getting in on the high-neck action this season which makes your fall styling life smooth and easy.

Check our highlight roll-necks below.
