How to

Pull Off a Turtleneck

They were on the runways of Burberry, Duckie Brown and Bottega Veneta. You've likely seen them in old photos of guys like Redford, Dean and of course, McQueen. But the turtleneck can be a bit tricky to pull off. The key is texture. Look for a sweater in a neutral color, with a chunky knit and think of it as an alternative to your standard shirt and tie. Layer it under a jacket and remember, comfort is key here, so don't be afraid to stretch out the collar a bit or even leave it unfurled and messy.
