Here are different types of turtlenecks

1.Classic turtleneck: A classic, snug-fitting turtleneck that covers the neck and fits close to the body. This style is versatile enough to be worn as a base layer or on its own.

2. Mock turtleneck:  This is similar to a standard turtleneck, but with a shorter, non-folding neck. It offers a more relaxed and casual look while providing neck coverage

3. Sleeveless turtlenecks: are a fashionable choice for layering or warmer weather. They still provide the neck coverage of a turtleneck but without the bulk of sleeves. They can be layered with a long sleeve shirt for a chic look.

4. Cowl Neck Turtleneck: offers a draped, loose neckline that adds texture and volume to the look. This can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion and it is often more relaxed and cozy.

5. Chunky knit turtleneck: Chunky knit turtlenecks, which are made from thicker yarns, offer warmth and cosiness. They are ideal for the cooler months as they tend to be thicker and oversized for a warm, winter-ready style.

6. Turtleneck poncho: Blends the cosy comfort of a turtleneck with the loose, flowing form of a poncho, creating a sophisticated and casual look.

7. Ribbed Turtleneck: Are characterized by vertical ribbing on the fabric that adds visual appeal to the clothing. They are typically form-fitting and flattering.

8. Bodysuit/fitted Turtleneck: Provides a form-fitting silhouette that highlights the body’s curves. They are ideal for layering underneath coats or blazers to give a polished and streamlined look.

9. Loose turtleneck: Offers a relaxed and comfortable fit, usually with a looser neck. This style is ideal for a casual, laid-back look and may be worn with jeans or leggings.

10. Turtleneck Sweater Dress: Combines a turtleneck style with a dress length, resulting in a versatile and chic wardrobe option. Turtleneck jumper dresses are comfortable and fashionable, making them appropriate for both casual and formal situations.

11. Buttoned or zippered turtleneck: Features buttons or a zip across the neck for adjustable neck covering. This style adds a touch of intricacy and can be worn slightly unbuttoned for an alternative look.

12. Turtleneck Crop Top: Offer a modern and trendy take on the turtleneck style, ideal for wearing with high-waisted trousers or skirts for a fashionable look.

13. Cutout or off-the-shoulder turtleneck: Cutouts or an off-the-shoulder design give the conventional turtleneck style a modern twist, adding refinement and edginess.
