A mock-turtleneck is a neck style that is fitted, but only comes up the neck a couple of inches. I have always avoided them because they reminded me of the old skivvies people used to wear in the 70s.

But, an old dog can be taught new tricks.

Today I picked up a black 100% merino mock-turtleneck from Forever New for under $70.00. The knit is fine, the sleeve length isn't bad and the neck is extremely flattering. Who knew? Here it is in the cream (the black does not appear on the website):

If you like the idea of a turtleneck/poloneck but the high neck doesn't appeal, I urge you to give the mock-turtleneck a try. Pair with ankle-grazing skinny jeans and ballet flats for a little bit of Audrey chic.
