Although a popped collar brings the cotton polo shirt to mind, that isn’t what’s happening here. Instead, street-style photos show the collar of a button-front shirt strategically poking out from under a turtleneck sweater or a crewneck sweatshirt with a tied handkerchief.
Is it a clever way of beating the winter chill? Or is it just a passing trend that looks uncomfortably snug around the neckline? We’ll just have to wait and see.
