Suiting never goes out of style, but there are ways to keep your tailored look appearing on-trend each season. This year, it’s all about what you pair your suit with. So, when the weather gets cold, swap your usual shirt for a turtleneck sweater. By combining a turtleneck with a smart suit, you’ll be able to achieve an incredibly stylish and sleek look. Try it for the office, dinners and other semi-formal events.
James Bond does it. McQueen did it. And the pages of men’s magazines can’t get enough of it. We’re – of course – talking about pairing a turtleneck with a suit for a refined look that’s the epitome of elegance in menswear. What really seals the deal? The utter lack of effort it takes to achieve this iconic trio. If this is still a tough sell for you, start with a lower priced turtleneck for all of the reward and minimal risk. Then, add a little oomph to your look with attention-grabbing outerwear and sleek accessories.
Wear it well:
- The thinner the knit is, the easier it will be to add as a sleek layer with a blazer, a leather jacket, or a wool topcoat.
- Stick to dark colors like black, blue, gray, or burgundy, which will suit fall and winter looks.
- The one (and subjectively only) pitfall of a turtleneck is the task of actually putting it on, so remember style your hair only after you have put on your sweater.
- Take it to the next level of refinement by opting for a double breasted jacket. Mind you, if you’re dressing up this style it’s important that the neck is folded evenly and falls flat.
