There, we said it. If your turtlenecks are quietly stacked at the back of your wardrobe, it’s time you consider bringing them back. Most men tend to give the humble silhouette a pass, for reasons unknown, when it really doesn’t have to be that way. To begin with, roll-up neckline exudes a sense of sophistication and the wearer always seems well put together. There are also innumerable ways to go about paring them up.
Ranbir Kapoor’s Koffee with Karan appearance last season was the first time the idea of men wearing turtlenecks really caught our attention. The white roll neck on a black suit was such a distinct sartorial choice. That and all the other times’ Akshay Kumar, Rajkummar Rao and Aditya Roy Kapoor have embraced this silhouette and gotten it right make for a good case to try it too.
If your schedule is more on the lines of attending board meetings, a black tie event or a dinner part with friends, take the formal route and pair up your roll up tee with a well-fitted blazer and dress shoes. You can also swap your blazer with a trench coat and Chelsea boots to go with it.
A rather casual pick for the season would be to pair up your roll neck jumper with a denim jacket and sneakers. It’s a full proof way to step out for a movie date or when heading to a local bar for drinks. Another classic way is to wear your turtleneck sweater with an overcoat and black denim jeans.
If your sartorial instincts too are making you want to dive into the roll-up sweater trend, here are the best one’s to stock up on this season. Scroll away.
