If you love to wear turtle necks (polo necks) like I do, then you have to try the pleated front style from Express. It’s my favourite turtle neck of the season and I’ve tried them all! It’s extra soft, drapes well and fits like a glove. It’s made of a rayon-nylon-spandex blend so it doesn’t itch. The neck fits closely around the skin and does not stretch out. The sleeves are a great length and I often scrunch them to around the elbow. The banded bottom is flattering and versatile.
Wear it plain and blouson the top part of the sweater. Tuck it into high-waisted skirts and pants, or belt it round the middle when left un-tucked. I use a lightweight turtle neck just like a layering tee so it works well under jackets, coats and certain dresses, tops and button down shirts too.
I bought four colours and doubled up on the black . They are on sale for $19.90 right now and if you purchase with a coupon you’ll get them for a whopping 14 bucks. In order to gain length I sized up on this style. It’s a little roomier than my other turtle necks, but the banded bottom and shoulders are adequately tailored and snug so I’m not worried.
After having these turtle necks for a few days I have already worn three of the colours. I think I’m going to live in them all Winter long.
