Fall Trend: Black Turtlenecks

Audrey Hepburn first immortalized the black turtleneck during the beatnik 1950s, and the classic style is back for Fall 2010. While we don’t expect you to rock it with lots of edgy and futuristic updates ala Alexander Wang and Proenza Schouler, you can wear it with big, bold statement and bib necklaces.

    Point to remember: turtlenecks may not flatter larger-busted women. I’ve always loved them, but a picture taken of me in one changed my mind…

  • I always mispell. I should have typed “I know there” not “their”. Sorry everyone.

    I’m 100% with u all concerning the fat neck/turtleneck look. I guess i’ll have to go find a bib necklace. 🙁

  • Do you have any current photo examples of wearing statement/bib necklaces with a black turtleneck? I get it, in theory, but I keep thinking of my un-hip stepmother’s “necklaces over turtleneck” look in the late 80s!
