Lightweight plus size turtleneck shirts (for spies)
February 14, 2017 6:29 PM   Subscribe

I'm looking for recommendations for plus size lightweight turtleneck or mock neck shirts. I found one at Target on clearance, and it's not even on their website. I'd prefer black, cotton and spandex or jersey. Size 2xl (20-22.) This shirt makes me feel like a spy. Bonus for other spy clothes that can be worn to work.

I like the Lands End layering turtlenecks & some of the other styles. I like the fit--I do think they run a little big. Also the Starfish leggings might be spy-worthy.

My mom really likes Land's End turtlenecks.
This one is available in plus sizes and is a cotton/rayon/spandex blend.
Here's one that I think is fairly light weight 100% cotton and available in plus sizes. But they have several styles, including mock necks, if you poke around the website.

Ack, should have previewed. :) But seconded.

I don't have a brand rec beyond (again!) Lands' End, but I'd definitely look at old beatnik fashion for sylistic inspiration for this. (You'll need, of course, awesome sunglasses. Perhaps even a silk headscarf for those wild car chases in convertibles or your speeding off on your Vespa to follow a perp... A classic trench, too.)

LE's rib knits are lightweight.

Wintersilks go up to 2XL (Here's their size guide) and I love them for layering turtlenecks.

And, never pay full price at Lands' End--there is a 30% off sale right now.

Marked all as best answer since I'll likely purchase one or two of each of the suggestions. Also thanks for spy suggestions - if anyone has any more let me know! Thanks, AskMe!
