Turtleneck Sweaters: Shop Your Shape (PHOTOS)


We all remember the scene in "Something's Gotta Give" where Jack Nicholson's character bemoans the fact that Diane Keaton's uptight Erica wears turtlenecks in the middle of summer. Novelist Nora Ephron loves to talk about how she and her friends wear turtlenecks in her book, "I Feel Bad About My Neck". We are here to tell you that turtlenecks are not only for ladies with wobbly necks (though we will all be there one day!) Think of Audrey Hepburn in a slim turtleneck and capri pants in "Sabrina"--they create a lean silhouette and are easy to pull off in any situation. The turtleneck sweater is the white t-shirt of the winter season--you can pair it with just about anything, and layered under your favorite look it is guaranteed to keep you warm on those chilly winter days. Check out our guide to the best turtlenecks for your shape.
