Roll On Roll Neck

The classic Roll neck. Not a trend distinctly known for its 'cool factor', or even for being a trend, having received a large amount of criticism in the fashion world in the past. 

However, for the now, it is here to stay and adding a roll neck to your repertoire is an instant wardrobe update. Whether it's a big, thick chunky knit worn on its own, or a slightly thinner version worn underneath a blazer, the roll neck works every time.

My favourite look is with a two-piece suit replacing the usual shirt and tie combo. This updated, modern version gives your suit a more casual look allowing you to wear it for a number of occasions. 

Alternatively a pair of jeans, a blazer and a chunky cream knit is a winning look for any occasion. If you want to be really crazy, you could even try layering a fine knit under a chunkier jumper, whatever works best for you.

Having been seen on a number of runways and designer collections, editorials and all over the high street, the roll neck is a very accessible item for men of all ages. 

However... a couple of tips before you invest. Firstly, if you are going for a fine-knit version, make sure you get a good fit. There should be no gaping, but not too tight, as it can be very unflattering if you get it wrong.

Secondly, please don't go for a 'quirky' print or 'out-there' pattern. The roll neck is all about understated cool, so block colours are a must. 

Apart from that, you can't really go too wrong! Overall, the roll neck is an incredibly versatile piece of clothing which can be worn in a number of different ways to update your style this season. What do you think of the trend?
