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.
The death of Steve Jobs, co-founder of Apple, has brought mourners and techno-philes to pay their respects at Apple stores around the globe. But there’s been one reaction in the past 24 hours that I never would have expected: St. Croix mock turtlenecks, which Jobs loved and was oft-photographed wearing, has seen an “almost 100 percent increase in sales” overnight. In response, St. Croix told TMZ it is planning a memorial to their unlikely brand ambassador, which is quite sweet. Says a St. Croix rep, “We have a great respect for everything he did and we’re glad he believed in our American-made product.” [TMZ]
A St. Croix turtleneck is one way to pay homage to the inventor of the Mac. But if you’re looking to rock a Steve Jobs look with a perhaps more feminine slant, I’ve rounded up some cute, ready-for-fall turtlenecks at all price points. All of them, it goes without saying, look good with an iPod.
