I had nothing but turtleneck sweaters when I was a kid, probably because my mom thought two birds with one stone since a turtleneck sweater means – most of the time – not having to wear a scarf. In time I came to realize that I don’t enjoy the very snug turtleneck feeling around my neck, however I kept worshiping loose boat neck sweaters. Besides the feeling, regular jersey or slim fit cotton turtlenecks always come across as too “bland”. Then Ece Sükan ushered in a new age for me by layering turtlenecks and basically wearing them under every piece of garment possible. Not only they keep the body warmer especially for summery stuff like deep V necks or thin fabrics (which is vital in Canada) they also seem to be adding that one thing missing from the look, every single time.
