Don’t let anyone make fun of your turtle neck again—higher necklines were all the rage at the Fall 2009 shows at New York Fashion week earlier this month.

Male turtle necks have been associated with Euro ski-bunnies for far too long, and female turtle necks with Martha Stewart-types. It’s time to turn a new page of Vogue, my friends.

Seen in the gallery, in order, are chic turtle necks by DKNY, Badgley Mischka, Michael Kors, Proenza Schouler, Lacoste, Ralph Lauren, Alexander Wang, Vivienne Westwood Red Label, Nathan Jenden and Twenty8Twelve. Stats for Raising Necklines Trending: Older & Chilly
