At some point a few years ago, I stopped wearing turtlenecks. I’m not sure what it was, but I’m officially rescinding my turtleneck prohibition. A turtleneck sweater — with or without a cowl — is a flattering fit that highlights your cheekbones and does that delicate trick of being sexy but not revealing. Plus, they’re really, really warm, which is kind of at a premium right now. After the jump, 10 terrific turtlenecks, to keep you covered.
In winter, you just can’t have enough ways to stay warm. So let us present to you the poncho sweater — an innovative two-in-one kind of garment that can be worn as an extra layer during the colder months. And though we caution you to stay away from more “stereotypical” ponchos — covered in fringe and vaguely ethnic designs — we think sticking with a simple design with modern details will do the trick just fine.
On the one hand, this sweater looks enticingly delicious. On the other, I still can’t eat it. And that makes me HANNNNNGRY (which is a word combining the two miserable qualities of being both hungry and angry). So for that reason alone, I’m not particularly fond of this pizza sweater. Consider also that I’m not entirely sure of pizza sweater’s origins (Alien baby? Pizza the Hut?) and this pizza sweater is a confusingly delectable Do Not Want.
Daisy Lowe is the model daughter of Bush frontman Gavin Rossdale. Remember him? She’s also in constant circulation on the British tabloids for her public exploits and relationships. Supposedly, this photo was taken just days (hours?) after she and “Dr. Who” star Matt Smith broke off their 18-month relationship. That explains the overall dark palette and sunglasses — after all, who wants to be seen in the aftermath of a break up? We still think Daisy looks tops here, though, with her charming schoolgirl silhouette, bright pops of color, and little pup. After the jump we’ve given you all the tools you need to steal Daisy’s style, no heartbreak required.

Last night, on the season finale of “Kell on Earth,” DNKY hired Kelly Cutrone’s team to produce a short viral video, since fashion is embracing the internet as the wave of the future. With a limited budget and only a day to shoot a short film, Kelly wrangled the camera guys, models, and PR girls while dealing with time restraints and police issues — all to show the world the power of a Cozy. So, just what is this object? Essentially, it’s simply a wrap sweater that comes in a variety of colors. But the key is to get crafty with your Cozy and learn to tie it in a bunch of different ways. You’ll show off your DIY skills and fashion styling sense, plus you’ll get to be part of Kelly’s power girl army she dreamed up for the video. Each Cozy retails for $195, but you can get your own 10 percent off today by becoming a member of DKNY. [The Recessionista] Keep reading »
