Women and Turtlenecks

Women have generally been the ones to own a fashion trend and set it off with the public. Turtlenecks had been primarily functional until the 1950’s when Audrey Hepburn made them popular with the public by wearing turtlenecks in her movies.

Also in the early 1950s teenage girls had taken to wearing lightweight turtlenecks which emphasized their figures. It is not sure if Hollywood started the trend, or took it from the public, but many movies in this era feature girls in tight-fitting turtleneck sweaters.

Later towards the end of the 1950s the tight fitting turtleneck or tight polo neck, had begun to set off the preppy image which promoted a very clean cut and well groomed attitude. The black polo neck turtleneck was popular among left wing activists or intellectuals.

The large cowl necked garments that pull over your head and frame your face continue to be popular today. They keep you warm and serve to give a somewhat mysterious look.

These days you will see a variety of garments for women sporting a turtleneck style. You will of course see it on sweaters and light weight shirts. But you also see them occasionally on jackets, blazers and dresses. There is also the trend of having a turtleneck on one fabric for the main part of the shirt, and a separate material covering the neck.
