A Must Have of This Season12/25/2015 Stylishpeeps Comments Closed
Turtlenecks have gotten a bad reputation. For whatever reason, more men are “afraid” of the turtleneck shape than any other classic silhouette in menswear.
Ironically, when pulled off correctly, it can be one of the most chic and elegant pieces in a man’s wardrobe.
A warm type of manly charm
While some may think that men can’t carry off this all covered look in style, I think turtlenecks totally bring out the manliness in you. A chunky knitted turtleneck simply worn with pants and brogues is a complete look in itself and doesn’t need any more styling. It will keep you warm and make you look elegant in shades of beige, grey or brown. You can even add some color to it by wearing printed knitted turtlenecks if you want to look bright on a sunny day.
Stand Tall And Confident
Wear turtlenecks for the right reasons. It is only a myth that they make you look taller and hide flaws like double chins. In fact, turtlenecks look best on slimmer body types and men who are tall, with high necks. That being said, heavier men are not forbidden to try this look out. You can always opt for wearing one with vertical stripes in thinner materials or simply put on a long coat to maintain the height.
Layer It Up (all the way till the neck)
Winter is all about layering and turtlenecks too, look great when layered with blazers. Long or short, pullover’s on a turtleneck or even a vest look eccentric and cool. You can even team up your subtle colored turtleneck with a bold scarf to quirk up your style. Layering always helps a great deal to pull off a winter look.
Try-On. Don’t Hesitate
It is always good to innovate when it comes to style and you should never hesitate to try-on something you think will look good. You may not own a turtleneck today, but if you feel like picking one up just to try it on at a store, go ahead and pull it over. They don’t charge to try, so what’s the harm? You may just end up loving the style and second opinions from uninhibited fashionable friends always help!
