I'm just really into turtlenecks right now.

And I'm not the only one. My homegirls Chelsea "Watercolours" Metcalf and Amy are always wearing them 90% of the time as well. So winter appropriate and vaguely 90s and librarian-esque. Anyone else a fan? Also, what do the guys think of them? Because I totally wore one out last saturday night and no one even spiked my drink.

  1. i just bought some from zara even though it is summer in california. couldn't not get them as they were too perfect with small buttons on part of the sleeve and a slim but not too too tight fit

  2. Polonecks are great and so flattering too. When she was older, Katharine Hepburn wore one to hide what she termed "This and that," Tonne Goodman at US Vogue wears one every day with chinos, sandals, and cardigan tied around her waist. Apparently ex-Vogue editor Sheila Wetton wore a camel one everyday and Yoko Ono managed to transform the poloneck from the reserve of the old maid to that of mod cool. Their are a plethora of examples of people who have rocked them and in terms of getting your hands on a good one - Uniqlo and Petit Bateau do the best

    I've thought of it as quite a "don't" for a while, but some of the images you feature make the turtleneck appear more practical. I particularly like them paired with a matching cardi, and also the thick knit ones. Those remove the necessity for a scarf, and honestly, seeing every woman, man and their mothers wearing scarves and boots in Winter has made me yearn for another way to ward off the chill. The oversized ones are attractive as well. Might just have to try it, Emma...
