Not many men will dare to wear turtlenecks but those who do, get our approval instantly. A polished look and sophisticated yet casual vibe is what turtlenecks give out.

This style can be worn very simply albeit the otherwise complicated perception it carries. This fall, turtlenecks are definitely the most versatile garment we have seen on and off the runway and they are sure to keep you snug as a bug during those wintry times. We tell you how you can carry off this look with panache and elegance.

A Warm Type Of Manly Charm

While some may think that men can’t carry off this all covered look in style, we 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 fashion 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!

Your winter wardrobe is definitely incomplete without a turtleneck to warm you up in style.
