Trending: The Return of theTurtleneck…& Our 10 Picks

Fountain of 30

October 11, 2011 • Fashion Blog, Shopping, Trends

I have such fond memories of being in elementary school and lamenting over my turtleneck collection. See as a die-hard preppy in my younger years it was important to find the right ones…where the neck always stood up perfectly. To fold over your turtleneck in those days was gauche. So here I am several years (OK, decades) later obsessed again. Turtlenecks made a return on the Fall ’11 runways, most notably in Jil Sander and Celine‘s shows. Whether you chose good old cotton jersey or a thin cashmere knit, the idea is to wear it with virtually anything, but mainly a structured jacket.

Here are our 10 turtleneck picks:

1.    Theory Bethel Wool/Silk Turtleneck Sweater, $245

2.    Piazza Sempione Jersey Turtleneck, $315

3.    Ralph Lauren Collection Cap-Sleeve Turtleneck Top, $1,098

4.    Saks Fifth Avenue Collection Cashmere Turtleneck Top, $218

5.    Armani Collezioni Cashmere Turtleneck, $555

6.    Tory Burch Caleb Turtleneck, $225

7.    Three Dots Turtleneck, $55

8.    Calvin Klein Turtleneck Top, $49

9.    L/S Turtleneck National Jean Company, $68

10.    A.L.C Ribbed Jersey Turtleneck, $230
