Famous for its conservative, high-necked coverage, the turtleneck seems to have gotten a bad rep in the fashion world over the years. Luckily, a handful of designers are offering up takes on the traditional style that are anything but dowdy. See a few right here:
Cashmere Destroyed Turtleneck Sweater Dress, Ben Taverniti Unravel Project ($1,420). Barneys New York, 660 Madison Ave., 212-826-8900; 2151 Broadway, 646-335-0978; 101 Seventh Ave., 646-264-6400
A distressed turtleneck dress takes the typical neckline for a funky turn. Pair with statement-making booties and you’re all set.
