A Layering Trick To Battle A Bad Case Of The Mondays

Photographed by Christian Vierig.
I would not be exaggerating if I said I wore a turtleneck with every single outfit, every single day that I was on the road for Fashion Month. When I had to look like I made all the effort while making as little effort as possible, the turtleneck was my secret weapon in giving all my outfits that extra tweak. Except, of course, it wasn't a secret — every other tired, cold, brain-fried person was sporting a turtleneck as well. And, I have to say that as a group, we looked pretty good.

Like the button-down shirt of seasons past, the turtleneck is one of the most versatile layering pieces out there in that you can wear it under pretty much anything. From your summer tanks and slip dresses to your winter wools, the turtleneck supplies any outfit with a modern edge. And, it's as easy as just putting one on. Ahead, check out five ways we wore our turtlenecks, and get a leg up on your impending case of the Mondays.
