Turtleneck Comeback

Turtleneck is never out of the fashion trend, especially when it comes to the season of fall and winter.

Known as the “Turtleneck” in the US & Canada, it is also referred to as a “Polo Neck” or “Roll Neck” in the United Kingdom and a “Skivvy” in Australia. The name “Turtleneck” refers to the high collar that “envelopes the neck”. The “Turtleneck” with its long collar that can be elongated or drawn back, emulates the “turtle’s neck” and thus it obtained its name. The collar is typically close fittingand long enough to be folded down over itself creating a double layer of warmth and style on those it bedecks.
