There was a time when rocking a turtleneck went hand-in-hand with Simon & Garfunkel jokes, but not today. Today, there’s hardly a piece more chic. The turtleneck is the workhorse of the winter outfit – it’s super sleek and makes anyone wearing it look at least 30% more fashionable. Plus, the nature of the neckline means it really pops under that floor-length plaid coat that you bought when it was still 90 degrees outside because it was too cute to pass up (I may or may not be speaking from personal experience, here).
Regardless of how you feel about turtlenecks, unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’re bound to have noticed the major way designers have embraced the shape this season. And for good reason. What’s better than being cozy AND on trend? Not much, in my book. Luckily, you can mix it up this time around with fun contrasting patterns and updated cuts. Everyone from Alexander McQueen to Maison Margiela is embracing the turtleneck this winter, and it’s time to stop fighting it. Complete your beat poet look, or make your ensemble runway ready with one of these pieces.
