Stunned analysts clutched one another in disbelief as turtleneck sales rose 29,384 percent this month, thanks to Drake, "Hotline Bling," and a sweater in a gray as soft as his feelings. I just made that figure up, but even without my meddling, 2015 is the Year of the Turtleneck—that's a fact.
Mainly, they're for layering under anything you'd rather be wearing but can't because you don't want to contract hypothermia, but styled à la Drizzy (i.e. by itself), a snug roll-neck knit can be more Netflix and chill than eating Easy Mac by yourself while watching Jessica Jones. That brings us to the Great Boobage Problem.
