Last week, we put forth a round of turtlenecks to encourage you to embrace the stylish winter accessory. Protecting ya’ neck is still on our mind, though, and now we’re bringing you an all-day solution to keeping warm and handsome through the all-mighty turtleneck.
For my money, there’s no better top to wear on a date than a turtleneck. It sits perfectly on the median between formal and casual and frames your face, perhaps your second best asset after your stellar personality, oh so perfectly. But that’s far from the only occasion when a turtleneck will hold you down. Really, there’s no place where most turtlenecks will look out of place, making it one of the most versatile pieces you can wear all winter and even in the transitional months.
Once you’ve decided to envelop your neck as part of a package deal in your top, there are still many options to navigate. The neck itself comes in your traditional straight-turtleneck, a roll-neck that folds over, or a mock-neck if you’re not quite ready to climb up all the way towards your jawline. Then you’ve got your many material varieties, your lighter jerseys, heavier knits, and even sweatshirts that add some elevation. We’ve put together seven different pieces that encompass this wide range of selections — and you’ll be grateful you picked one up as soon as you pull it over your head.
