Maybe you only got five hours of sleep last night, and it's 10:44 a.m., and the coffee isn't working, and your eyes are puffy and watery. Maybe it's 4 p.m. and you don't want to answer your emails. Sometimes, you just need to quietly hide from work and everyone you know for a little bit. You need a turtleneck with a big-ass neck.

Dressing, while an opportunity for self-expression, is also a defensive measure. Some of us wear leather jackets to feel tough; spiky heels can provide strength. Cocooning turtlenecks like this one — the sort that you can duck your whole face into — make me feel safe when I'm otherwise feeling embattled. It's what I like to wear when it's cold out, or I have a cold or when things just feel like a lot.

This striped one, available for purchase at Steven Alan, also happens to be chic as hell. You can look good and feel good, too.
