Trend Discourse: Short Cropped Turtlenecks & Mocknecks


      Looks like winter has finally come to NYC after a rather abnormally warm December. This week was the first time I felt the bitter chilly winds that are waiting to invade my parka for the entire month of January and February. To fight the cold, I've been loving turtlenecks whether they be in a chunky knit, or a thinner cotton blend. One particular type of turtleneck has been catching my eye recently though - the cropped turtleneck or mockneck. Paired with some high waisted jeans and some winter booties, I think it's a really chic winter outfit!

      I can't decide whether I like traditional turtlenecks or "mocknecks" better. Mocknecks are collars that still have a high neck, but they don't fold over or go all the way under your chin like a traditional turtleneck would. The mocknecks remind me of Audrey Hepburn's classic outfits in Breakfast at Tiffany's. I loved that oatmeal beige colored boxy top that she wore over black pants with the pigtails! But I also do love the classic turtleneck especially if it's in a chunky heavy knit. In conclusion, I think the mockneck and the turtleneck are both timeless classics which you can't go wrong with.
