How to Wear a Roll Neck

Versatile, relaxed and really easy-to-wear, the roll neck jumper is a useful piece of kit that is effortlessly stylish. At first they may seem a daunting prospect, but we think it's a must for any man's wardrobe. And when teamed with the right gear, you can look good in a roll neck both this season and the next. Here are three reliable and foolproof ways on how to wear a roll neck this season.

Lighten the Load

When it's neither quite cold enough to warrant a thick overcoat nor mild enough for a shirt and jumper, opt for a slick roll neck sweater layered under a lightweight bomber. It's not quite cold enough for chunky knits so choose a fine gauge, which are also great for the office. Alternatively, you could stick to wearing a roll neck on its own with a pair of formal trousers for work or dressed down with slim fit jeans or casual chinos. Once again the roll neck proves to be a versatile item you'll wear on both off-duty and smarter work days.

 Suits You Sir

The thinking man’s alternative to a shirt and tie, wear a fine gauge polo neck jumper underneath your favourite suit. A lighter-hued roll neck works well with a check suit or for something a little bolder try a plum colour under your navy or black suit. You'll always look sharp in this fuss-free piece of office attire. Add this sophisticated knit to your wardrobe to take you from the boardroom to bar for a mid-week date.

Under Wraps

Lastly for a modern update, choose both a blazer and bomber over your roll neck. The ultimate contemporary look, you'll get the best of both worlds by pairing tailoring with on-trend streetwear. Keep it easy and go tonal with your hues or look suitably seasonal in an autumnal palette. Finish with your go-with-everything brogues for a stylish outfit that'll be on constant rotation.
