There are a number of timeless classics that you will find featuring in almost every winter trend throughout the ages and forgetting about scarves and gloves, the turtle neck has to be up there as one of the most frequent.
Not only warm but also versatile when it comes to completing your look, the modest, plain coloured turtle neck is set to pop its head out of its shell and make its way onto the street.
Often created with warmth in mind, their ability to function either alone or as part of an undergarment makes them as flexible as you’ll see, making them a brilliant addition to your winter wardrobe if you are looking for something that has the ability to dress your style up or down.
I thought that with their appearance about to become more obvious as the temperatures drop, i’d take a look at a couple of ways that you could combine a simplistic turtle neck into your style to give you a few ideas for your own variation of it.
With an array of combinations available to you that allow you to put your own style into your outfit, a turtle neck firmly deserves the comments that refer to them as being the ‘swiss army knife’ of the winter fashion world and because I know that some of you will be wanting to get your hands on one as soon as possible to combat the cold, here are a selection that I have seen while shopping over the weekend.
Topman Black Roll Neck Jumper – Was £25.00 – Now £15.00
Black has always been a colour that has enabled men of all shapes and sizes to be able to take to the catwalk of life in some of the most daring fashion, mostly because it is one of the most forgiving shades when it comes to body shape, and with this roll neck jumper fine fitted, that is certainly going to work in your favour.
Priced at just £15.00 in the sale at Topman, it’s a fantastic choice for those that want to keep their shades as dark as those winter evenings.
Other colours are available too, check the Topman website for details.
ASOS Muscle Fit Turtle Neck Jumper – £20
ASOS were always going to be a retailer of choice here and their collection of turtle neck jumpers for men is extensive as you are going to find, so here is their muscle fit cotton turtle neck jumper that has been given the Carrotty Kid nod of approval.
You’ll notice that the neck is not rolled, however that means that it offers up even more options when it comes to customising your look, opening up the chance to also pair it with a scarf should you think that the weather demands it.
Priced at £20 on the ASOS site, it looks great when worn either dressed up or down with a bomber style jacket.
