A dickie is something that you would typically wear underneath a sweater so that it looks like you are wearing a turtleneck or other shirt beneath your sweater when you're really not. I suppose it's for those who don't want the added warmth of actually wearing a turtleneck under their sweater but want the "look" it creates.

I don't think you really see people wearing them anymore. They're a little ridiculous if you ask me ... but to each his own I suppose!
