I'd wear this if they'd issued it in other colours than pink:

Nice, if plain, "mock Turtle" neck tops in Zara  at v reasonable price . https://www.zara.com/uk/en/basic-high-neck-sweater-p00693323.html?v1=38391831&v2=1445421 (I prefer  a "Mock Turtle Neck "  - like a Turtle Neck but without the "fold over", and also tend to be a bit lower so kinder on the chin, so picked one up

The also have them with t-shirt sleeves, which feels very 1960's - in the shop they seemed to  have more colours available for the short sleeve  https://www.zara.com/uk/en/high-neck-t-shirt-p00722421.html?v1=41219901&v2=1445111

they also had quite a nice "chore jacket" or "worker jacket" in the store (they are everywhere now ), only in a mid-blue with a contrast stitching, that looked quite nautical /1960's, which isn't on the website

I was able to pick up something  very similar to those from Uniqlo last season... both black and white ones (in cotton, Laird  ;) )

Those high neck (I hesitate calling them "turtle-necks", as the collar isn't that high really) t-shirts and jumpers seem to be in vogue lately, lots of high street brands (for instance, Topman or Mango Man at one end of the spectrum, Sandro at the other) making them. Most of them are plain, however, I miss some retro-stripes action, like the Topman I got last year.

Talking about US designer Todd Snyder, his last collection is a veritable treasure trove of cool retro knits, some of them in more colours than shown here. Strictly sales clobber, mind you:
