Welcome to the worlds greatest guide to women's black turtlenecks.

A turtleneck is a top with a close-fitting, round, and high part similar to a collar that folds over and covers the neck.  The turtleneck is often a sweater, but does not always have to be a sweater.

The turtleneck style can be produced from a wide variety of fabrics.  The options of color is boundless.  One of the many options would be black and various shades of black.

Black is the darkest color, the result of the absence or complete absorption of visible light. It is an achromatic color, literally a color without hue, like white and gray.  Since the Middle Ages, black has been the symbolic color of solemnity and authority, and for this reason is still commonly worn by judges and magistrates.  In the Roman Empire, it became the color of mourning, and over the centuries it was frequently associated with death, evil, witches and magic.  It became the color worn by English romantic poets, businessmen and statesmen in the 19th century, and a high fashion color in the 20th century.  Black is the color most commonly associated with elegance in Europe and the United States, followed by silver, gold, and white.

Shades of black are colors that differ only slightly from pure black. These colors have a low lightness. From photometric point of view, a color which differs slightly from black always has low relative luminance. Variations of black include what are commonly termed off-black colors, which may be considered part of a neutral color scheme.

In color theory, a shade is a pure color mixed with black. It decreases its lightness while nearly conserving its chromaticity. Strictly speaking, a "shade of black" is always a pure black itself and a "tint of black" would be a neutral gray. Unlike these, many off-black colors possess a hue and a colorfulness (also called saturation). Colors often considered "shades of black" include onyx, black olive, charcoal, and jet.
