I'd call it a crewneck, personally. I am also busty and it's not a flattering style for me. I do much better in a scoop or V-neck.
If wisdom’s ways you wisely seek,
Five things observe with care,
To whom you speak,
Of whom you speak,
And how, and when, and where.

I don't understand why people keep calling it a turtleneck. To me, a turtleneck is one that folds around your neck and creates something that looks like a cuff around your neck but above your shoulders.
I don't either. A turtleneck is something that is high collared and fits closely around your neck.

About a year ago, we had a woman show up to court in a track suit. Federal court. And she was one of the lawyers.

That incident was the last straw for many of our judges here in Chicago and they organized a "fashion show" of appropriate court attire for law students. It was held at the Chicago Bar Assoc.

Basically, folks, it's a business occasion.

I've heard the style described as a mock turtleneck also.

You're right, it's not a turtleneck.  I hadn't looked at it recently enough. :)  It still makes her look like one breast, though.  And while breastS are a good thing in Hollywood, one singular one in the middle is still not a good look!

Thank you! And not just any business occassion - the most formal of them!  

And this is exactly why her white dress, and all that cleavage in the pantsuit were completely inappropriate for court.  The second outfit came closer - but where's the jacket? the Collar? where on earth is that much cleavage acceptable in a business setting...wait - dont answer that! ;)

Quite a few female lawyers don't wear collared shirts with their suits. They often wear something like this: http://t1.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcThNrEfJAfhHGAKj9RuKiyfsYIFOEmj0rQBRcj5x9Gux1yXgn80Vw But, no, you shouldn't have your cleavage hanging out.

And yes, if you can afford a suit, you should definitely wear one, but many times, people can't, so a blouse with clean slacks or a close-to-knee length skirt will suffice. But in this case, Lindsay can afford something more appropriate for court.

Well, she's getting there slowly.  At least she's not showing cleavage and she's wearing tights.

I hated this one too!

I'm not saying she should dress like a total frump, but seriously.

And once again- DO SOMETHING WITH YOU HAIR!

In addition to proper foundation garments. The problem is not just that her bra does not fit, it's that we can tell this with her dress on.

It's like the sports bra squished fit look - not a good look to go for....

I found today's outfit to be bizarre as well.

I just don't understand. Doesn't she have a stylist?

I would think a stylist would know courtroom = highly publicized case = two bad outfits = everyone watching! In other words, get it right.
