Turtlenecks have made a comeback as a fall staple!

Some gasp, some gag and some cringe at the idea of wearing, dare I say it, a turtleneck!  Frequently associated with grannies, evil kindergarten teachers and soccer moms, turtlenecks actually aren’t that bad — when worn the correct way. The clever shirts are a simple way to add an additional layer of warmth or cover up a chilly neck when you can’t seem to find your favorite go-to scarf.

Turtlenecks have become popular on the BCBG runway.

This season, turtlenecks have cropped up on the runways and red carpets alike, often worn under dresses, with jeans, or tucked into chic skirts.

BCBG recently showed turtlenecks on their Fall 2011 runway, with simple white versions worn under elegant, belted gowns. The additional layer of the ensemble adds an extra dimension of both style and warmth.

An easy way to incorporate turtlenecks into your daily wardrobe is by pairing a plain, solid color with chic straight jeans and flats or with a fitted pencil skirt. Avoid bulky styles in thick materials, and opt for sheer, fitted, cotton numbers.

Retailers like Express, H&M, Old Navy and more offer a wide variety of turtlenecks in both plain colors and prints.  Stock up this season and let the layering begin!
