THE ROLL NECK, THE REBELLION AGAINST THE TIE

They make life so easy: you can wear a turtleneck to work and then afterwards throw on a jacket, and it becomes very dressy. You can go anywhere you like.” – Designer, Halston

Inspired by the crazy 70’s, the Rollneck makes a return to the wardrobe must have for 2016. Originally seen as a work wear item for sailors, athletes, hockey players and even the US Army during the WWII, the rollneck has become an iconic symbol for non conformist as it was seen as the substitute to wearing a tie and suit.

The roll neck is an investment piece, and should be a staple of your wardrobe. The roll neck moves with the body, is flattering while elongating the figure and accentuates the face.

Toughen it up with leather or denim jackets, forget wearing a tie to work, replace it with a basic colour roll neck and if you’re daring enough, wear it in a bright colour. Dress it up or down, the roll neck is the perfect winter top to layer with your favourite suit or jacket.
