What’s so splendid about Splendid, the brand? Comfort, softness, and oh so fitted. My go to brands for turtlenecks have always been Express. I own like 10 Express turtlenecks. But these last two years, Express style have become more Club style fashion – more metallics, more ruffles, and less basic materials and cuts.
I turned to Forever21 to fill the void however, quality is nowhere near the Express turtlenecks. Many pilled within 2 wears. I already see rips and tears at the seams after only several washes. I then purchased a Gap Pure Body Turtleneck. Great quality and it does not fade. However the fabric is very thin so it doesn’t keep me very warm during colder days.
For a couple of years, I kept looking at Splendid and their line of turtlenecks. At $50+ a turtleneck, it is startling for me to spend for only 1 turtleneck. But during the Christmas sale, I decided to try through shopbop.com. If I don’t like it, I could always return it.
The quality of Splendid WOWed me. It is thick and soft and very fitted. I love the feel of the material. However after several wears, I do see some pilling. But being that it’s black helped cover up the pillings.
