I've concluded that I've been been avoiding a tiny subsection of my multiple turtleneck community for a while now: the dreaded funnel neck. For too long, I've been making excuses for this neckline, "Oh, it's just like a turtleneck," "They're timeless," and, the absolutely egregious fallacy, "It's very 1960. Jackie O wore them." It would be so easy to just dismiss all of my funnel necks out of hand, but I knew that I needed to at least give them their day in the "sun," (or fluorescent lights of the ice rink, as it were).
Do I even need to say that this particular family of funnel necks are all from the Limited, somewhere around early 2000? Apparently, my thought process went like this: "Oh, this is cute. I bet I will want to wear this exact sweater, but in different colors all winter long. I'll take it in the fun stripes, and then the dreary grey and the depressing black." So, to honor those new millennium wishes, I will try to wear all 3 members of this family this week. Try, being the operative word here.
