How do I love the turtleneck? Let me count the ways. One, it’s perfect for hiding a bad hair day. Also perfect for giving you secretly cool, effortless hair that stays tucked in the neck. Second, hides everything! Three, keeps you warm. Four, and this is the most important one, turtlenecks are the sweaters of grown, accomplished women. Women in turtlenecks are fearless and confident and unbothered by anyone’s bullshit.
Fashion seems to agree because turtlenecks are everywhere right now. Even the men (hello Lebron, I see you)! And we’re not talking about the thin, ribbed turtleneck that’s great for layering underneath things in the winter. You know where to go for those – it’s Uniqlo. We are focused on a specific version though – the slightly oversized but still flattering cozy sweater. How can you wear it? Practically anyway you want. Jeans, midi skirts, trousers are all a perfect match. Personally, I think it’s impossible to go wrong with a pair of mom jeans. Of course, Everlane has a variety of wonderful ‘necks. I’ve lost sleep over this particular sweater from Raey.
