The right turtleneck is an essential layering piece for Fall but all to often designers get it wrong. Either the turtleneck is too tight and uncomfortable or the fit just unflattering. This mock neck from Uniqlo U excels in its simplicity. The sub-line is helmed by Christophe Lemaire and really shows his expertise and taking basic garments and putting his touch on them through fit and finish. This mock neck features a slight oversized fit using a heavy-weight 100% cotton construction with a newly developed double-faced material that is soft, yet crisp. Stretch-resistant ribbed cuffs ensure warmth and a good fit. Check out the five colors available via Uniqlo.
