The Turtleneck

What’s old is new again! The turtleneck first appeared as an undergarment for college athletes in the late 1800s, rising to the height of 1950s beatnik fashion before being relegated to 90s thrift store racks. Well, the once-dorky turtleneck is back in fashion thanks to the efforts of designers like Donna Karan and Stella McCartney. Parents should celebrate. Why? They keep kids warm and look downright classy, even with jeans. Pair with a vest and a messenger bag for a professorial vibe.
