With temperatures hitting below zero, the time has come for some extra-cozy knitwear. And while V-necks and shawl-collars will do their bit to keep you warm, nothing beats the scarf/sweater hybrid that is the turtleneck.

Originally worn by English polo players in the 1860s (hence why they're referred to as "polo necks" across the pond), turtleneck sweaters have been around ever since, and it's easy to see why. It makes for the perfect layering piece without adding any extra bulk or fabric, reducing the need for scarves and other winter accessories. And while it's status among yearly trends has dipped in and out of associations with preppy kids and older intellectuals, its popularity among in-the-know fashion crowds is now going steady.

To back up that statement, some of our favorite brands have included dope versions of the turtleneck sweater in their fall/winter collections, whether that's high-end merino wool or more casual cotton long-sleeve T-shirts. When it comes to the piece's many luxury iterations, look no further than Montreal-based SSENSE.

And so, below we've curated 10 of our favorite turtlenecks to shop at SSENSE right now. From Maison Margiela's oversized cashmere sweater to Raf Simons' unconventional sleeveless option, our selection of this luxury piece will have something for everyone. What's more, with SSENSE's winter sale in full swing, quality pieces start at just $170.
