I loathed wearing turtlenecks as a kid, and would actively try to destroy the ones in my closet when the weather cools down every fall to avoid having to wear them.
As an adult, though, I love turtlenecks. They are perfect for wearing ornate necklaces with: you get all of the sparkles without having to contend with cold beads brushing up against delicate skin around the décolletage. And since its “comeback” last fall, the myriad of choices available now ensures a high likelihood of your finding something flattering.
