Turtuleneck, Polo-Neck, Roll-Neck
Turtleneck, Polo-Neck, Roll-Neck, you can call it all of the above and all would be correct! As a kid I hated wearing them, I thought they were stuffy and restricting but my mom loved them along with mullets so lets just say there was a period in my life were I looked like a cross between Joe Dirt and Dianne Keating.
Now that I get to dress myself and decide what hair cut I get, I don't mind wearing the infamous turtleneck cause I get to wear my way!!
If your wondering who is responsible for bring back the turtleneck…well if I had to pick one person or designer I would say it is/was Balenciaga, there fall 2018/2019 had almost ever girl walking down the run-way wearing turtlenecks layered under t-shirts sweaters and dresses and it was done in spectacular fashion!
There was other designers that that had a similar emo but for me it was Balenciaga that made me want to run out and buy a turtleneck!
The Turtleneck comes in all colors and styles, personally I like a thin knit because you want it to double as a layering piece, that way you don't feel to stuffy when you start adding a shirt, or dress, or a sweater or whatever else you want to layer over your turtleneck! The best part is that they are super inexpensive and you can get them anywhere, I rounded up a few of my favorite styles!
