Spam the Neckline – The Turtleneck

A high, close-fitting, turned-over collar on a garment, typically a shirt or sweater.

Oxford Dictionary

Ah, the turtleneck. Beloved of hipsters and beatniks. As a neckline, it’s more versatile than it appears at first. It can be a classic, mock, funnel, or cowl neck. It can be layered or worn with full-on commitment as a standalone piece.

We had a fabulous example of a cowl neck worn by none other than the birthday girl herself, Queen Maxima.

You want classic? So many examples of royals rocking the look, from the basic black to turtleneck dresses.
