Britney Spears: turtlenecks’ biggest fan.

No one loves turtlenecks more than Britney Spears. It’s just a fact. From her immaculate white “Sometimes” top to her red latex “Oops…I Did It Again” catsuit to her mid-aughts Starbucks run uniforms, the Louisiana girl-turned-woman has been a fan of the hyper-modest neckline since way back her earliest days of pop superstardom. That’s not to say she didn’t also delve into lower-cut territory (and midriff-baring and micro hemlines) because she totally totally did, but Brit’s thing for turtlenecks, and even a subtle mock neck, is pretty unique, and with the exception of Spears herself has remained a relic of the late ’90s until now.

Despite it not necessarily being the most flattering steez for most normal humans, Britney has stood by the look for over a decade and may be the precise origin to blame responsible for the sartorial phenomenon that is the short-sleeved, cropped turtleneck. Now, to celebrate her 32nd year (AND because we’re right on the heels of her eighth studio album Britney Jean), we’re offering up 32 turtlenecks for any brave lady (Brit included) whose closet (and clavicle) is feeling a little bare.
