The Turtleneck Party Dress That's Actually Kind of Alluring

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Today's pick comes from Racked DC editor Adele Chapin.

Babaton Otto Dress, $85 at Aritzia

I'm drawn to party dresses with sleeves. It's a little bit prim and proper of me, but practically speaking, it works because I'm always freezing. This Aritzia dress is really, really covered up. It is, in fact, a turtleneck going-out dress. Stay with me here. It's 90s sleek. Picture supermodel Amber Valletta wearing this dress with slicked back hair and minimal accessories. And there's a very unexpected cut-out in the back that makes it special. Definitely shows more skin than you would expect of a turtleneck party dress.
