Effortless Styling; The Turtleneck

Turtlenecks have been a reoccurring trend in men’s fashion and are also a classic staple piece. That being said, I believe turtlenecks will be making a much bigger appearance in men’s fashion throughout 2017. As mentioned in my ‘top 3 stylish essentials for winter‘ post, turtlenecks are my absolute favourite as they can be easily styled. They can be worn over chinos, denim or even with a suit. In fact, every gentleman should invest in a well fitted turtleneck and don’t just stop at one colour.
