Turtlenecks Creep Out of Their Shell

Turtlenecks—maybe they make you think of skiing, or perhaps about French intellectuals, or dare we say, even turtles. But it's time to yank your long-necked shirts from the back of the drawer. They're functional (warmth!) and create a nice contrast when used in layering—like a base coat of paint. The black turtleneck may be the go-to piece, but we saw some colors and stripes here and there as well.
