Turtlenecks have a bad rap.

Whether it's because they can feel a little too tight at the neck, look frumpy or too preppy, many of us opt out of the cold-weather staple. Well, the aversion ends now. Contrary to some belief, turtlenecks can be fashion-forward, easy to wear and just plain cool. Please see the most style savvy stars as evidence.

With the right techniques, you can maximize your style and feel cozy and warm while you're at it. If you have edgier taste, find inspiration in Emma Roberts and wear your favorite neck-warmer underneath a strappy maxi-dress. Top it off with a leather jacket like all bad bosses seemingly do.

Feel like you can't breathe? Turtlenecks will keep you warm and snug but can also feel a bit restricting. If that's the case, do as Miranda Kerr and Demi Lovato, and opt for a cropped sweater—that's built-in ventilation right there. Feel like turtlenecks are too drab? Punch up the color—it'll make a world of difference (just ask Gigi Hadid).

If fashion mogul Victoria Beckham can make it work, so can you, too. Just keep scrolling for more celeb-inspired ways to wear this wardrobe staple.
