Warm Up!

I looooooove me a turtleneck!

Love them. Here in Paris, temperatures are slowly dropping (I’m kinda mad, but I admit the return of cool weather gives the civilized woman that I am an excuse to order tea and pistachio cake at Merci Café, so I guess I won’t complain, well, actually I will — we’re in Paris after all, but anyway…) it’s time for jackets, scarves, and turtlenecks.

Apparently in New York, the Indian summer suddenly got taken over by a hurricane so all my friends are under the covers with their boyfriends or on Tinder saying “Want to come over to my house?” “No, how about you come over here?” so I have a feeling when I get back it will be time to get the Canada Goose out and I tremble at the thought, but oh well. Everyone come to my house ok?

And here in Paris at Studio Dorépublique (we’re renting an apartment at République and it’s like being at summer camp, woohoo!)(well, actually, with all the work we have to do, let’s say it’s more like studying for exams at boarding school and inhaling coffee all together) we all love turtlenecks because they solve the mid-season problem in three seconds: they’re great under or over a shirt, they look cool under a coat (like on Caroline de Maigret, for example, the queen of cool) and they’re great by themselves too, especially when you’re wearing a piece so striking (like a red skirt made out of leather) that you don’t want to wear anything that might draw attention away from it.

Hehehe except that won’t work on me, since my eyes always wander where they aren’t supposed to ;)

  • Les babouches que je crée au Maroc sont du même imprimé que le manteau de Caroline de Maigret ????????

  • I’ve always loved turtlenecks but nowadays, in this selfie era… they are a must! They hidden double (or triple) chins like magic! Scarves also do the job perfectly… No worries about that extra cake portion. Oh, Autumn fashion is my fave :)

  • I’m slowly getting into turtlenecks again. I use to hate them! But now I want them in my closet!

  • We just stocked up on some cashmere turtlenecks from the Lemaire capsule at Uniqlo, so thanks for these inspiration shots!
    While you are in Paris, come visit our Accessory Showroom at Rue des Arquebusiers n. 11 (right around the corner from Merci)! Here until Oct 8 with lots of great brands here and on this street

  • bouf… Moi je suis une claustrophobe du col roulé. C’est beau mais ça m’étouffe !

  • Cet article à tous pour me réconcilier avec le col-roulé, je lui trouve en général toujours quelque chose à redire (ça gratte, ça m’étouffe, c’est trop chaud…). Mais je dois avouer que celui porté par Caroline De Maigret à l’air top ! Ni trop serré, ni trop chaud et quelle dégaine !

    Asia Typek!

  • I also love turtlenecks, they create a great line, and can be very elegant. I really liked pic1 and 3 in this post.

  • Anyone knows where is the cool black coat that lady on the second photo wearing, from?

  • I love turtlenecks!

    Les cols roulés fins, pas possible si on a de la poitrine, je trouve… Sinon, ça se porte.

  • so great to be able to choose because the weather is nice….when it gets really cold..we become “survival look”
    that is not so fun,,,,

    République…super coin quand on débarque à Paris! Plein d’énergie et de mélanges à tous les niveaux, Paris quoi ;) … hâte de voir ce que vous allez nous préparez :)

  • J’aime les cols roulés mais il ne faut vraiment pas que se soit serré sinon j’étouffe, je suis mal à l’aise. C’est peut débile mais je ne supporte pas, va comprendre.

  • Moi non plus je ne supporte pas ;)

    ahhh…the turtleneck! Who can forget Nora Ephron’s love of the turtleneck. See ; “There’s Something About my Neck”
    I like a turtleneck that has some casual “stand-up-ness” to it. As we age it is best, I find , to have some crisper lines of clothing around the neck and framing the face. Especially true for being photographed.
    But the turtleneck is soooo cozy…I love it on crisp windy days.

  • Moi aussi, j’aime beaucoup le col roulé! Ça va à merveille à certaines personnes.
    Personnellement, je suis très content que la température baisse, il est enfin possible de ressortir ses plus beaux vêtements chauds haha.

    Love how they look on others!

    Don’t love at all how they feel on me! I’m always too hot with a turtleneck indoors and feel like I’m suffocating in them. A scarf for me every time, but I won’t say “no” to watching others wear their sleek and elegant turtlenecks!

  • Je suis entièrement d’accord avec toi, et tu as tellement bien résumer la chose, dans cette ode au col roulé ;)
    Je viens d’ailleurs enfin de m’offrir un col roulé fin noir, la base, et pourtant je me demande encore pourquoi je n’ai pas saisie l’opportunité de l’acheter dans tous les coloris qui étaient disponibles.
    Il va bien me dépanner celui-là pendant la saison ! ;)

  • Je dis pas hein, mais moi j’aime pas les cols roulés. Sur les autres ça ne me dérange pas, mais sur moi, j’ai toujours la sensation d’être engloutie et prisonnière de mon pull ou pire de mon sous-pull… Alors j’ai une grande collection de mini foulards et d’écharpes, ça compense et mon coup reste couvert. En plus si je me fais un total look black je peux mettre une touche de couleur sur mon cou et je kiffe.

  • I am actually surprised, Garance, that you wear turtlenecks. I love turtlenecks, but as a fellow well-endowed woman, I find that they accentuate my full bustedness in an unflattering way. You don’t?

  • That first jacket is great! I actually don’t own a turtle neck, but I really think I need one.

  • Me too!
    I love turtle necks too because I hate coldness and it keeps me warm in winter! It is not very sexy but with a short skirt, and feminine outfit, it’s quite nice!

    Petite and So What

  • I love tiny mock turtlenecks only! I feel too confined in a regular one…but I do love how wonderful they look with cozy oversized scarves!! xo

  • Ah moi aussi j’adore les cols roulés! Que ce soit un sous-pull en coton ou un gros pull en laine j’adore en porter, ça fait classe, ça habille un cou (?!!). On peut rajouter un collier et ce que j’aime par-dessus tout c’est qu’on n’a pas besoin de rajouter une écharpe ou un foulard (sauf s’il fait -10°C bien sûr). So yes, go go go pour les cols roulés!!!

    Though I have mixed feelings when it comes to wearing turtlenecks, I must say, your selection of outfits totally inspired me to wear them more often!

  • J’aime aussi les pulls a cols roules ( pas roules mais droits) comme celui sur la premiere photo : fin et qui n’engonce pas le cou.

  • Haha, just order a black one before opening the article… It’s so basic and yet it looks so polished, it just makes an outfit look more put together. And the best thing is that you don’t have to wear a scarf anymore :)

  • Un très bel hommage au col roulé, toujours vecteur de style, toujours de saison, toujours au coeur de la mode et des tendances.

  • Les cols roulés sont des classiques

  • Ah je ne suis pas fan des cols roulés mais j’adore l’expression ( très marseillaise) ” ça fait dégaine” , je suis ravie que tu l’internationalises !

  • Super article, et OUI au look dégaine avec un col roulé oversize…quel dommage qu’à Los Angeles, là où je vis, on ne puisse en porter que 2jours dans l’année!
