Trendspotting: Return of the Turtleneck
And to address the first and foremost elephant in this room: there is good reason turtlenecks are called turtlenecks, this wasn’t just a case of let’s group a style and animal together for shits. Like, you know, a cowl neck. No, no, turtles don’t have necks. I mean, they do, but only when they stick their heads out of their shells. As will we, only we stick our heads far out of the our knits. Simple explanation, I know, but this isn’t the discovery channel, it’s a fashion blog and whoever told you I was well-rounded was…lying. And so now I talk about something I am slightly better versed in: hiding necks! And fashion. While it’s 82 degrees today, Pat Kiernan says it’ll be getting chillier so I say, let turtlenecks have the inevitable moment rearing it’s neckless head. I’m taking this neck thing real far, aren’t I? Whatever. Most prevalently spotted on Celine and Jil Sander runways last Fall…
I say we give it a real go. If at the very least because it’s a good test in the reintroduction of age-old man repellers to our current closets. Isn’t there something so Diane Keaton x The First Wives Club about a turtleneck? Maybe that’s why
the Rev from 7th Heaven her husband left her. They’ll keep us warm–the turtlenecks, not Diane and her movie–and make for fun new layering prospects. On an unrelated note, we should applaud floral print booties and another: I’m not saying you have to wear a spider man head-covering too, but if you want to, I won’t stop you. Below now, find ways to incorporate the turtleneck into your closet. Do it, do it, do it, do it, do it, do it, do it now. I think I’m drunk. On life!
By golly, this is fun.
