How To Wear Men’s Turtleneck
Though it’s often been overlooked in men’s fashion and seen as outdated due to its popularity back in the 60s, 70s, and 80s, turtlenecks are having a sudden comeback amongst stylish gentlemen in this modern age.
You can dress them up by wearing them in sleek classic ways or you can dress them down for a more casual or street style affair.
Whether you choose to downplay or accentuate your look with the turtleneck you are definitely going to look great wearing it.
For some ideas and style inspiration, here are 6 different ways you can rock this timeless piece.
6 WAYS TO WEAR MEN’S TURTLENECK
1. Choose the right type of turtleneck
Choosing the right type of turtleneck depends on the function and look one prefers. To find the right turtleneck you should consider the type of fabric, the color, the pattern, and the weave.
For a formal or business look, go for the classic thin knit turtlenecks in neutral colors.
For a casual look, go for the chunky knit turtlenecks and choose any color you are comfortable wearing but ensure they go well with the rest of your outfit.
2. Turtleneck with a Two or Three Piece Suit.
A simple, two-piece or the more sophisticated three-piece suit styled with a dark turtleneck is a perfect choice for any man who wants to achieve the classic look.
3. Turtleneck with a Double-breasted Suit
Layering your double–breasted suit with a turtleneck is a cool way to dress up this style.
4. Turtleneck on its own, with nothing but jeans, chinos, or dress pants.
Pairing your turtleneck with nothing but jeans, chinos or dress pants is a cool way to dress down this style in a smart casual way.
5. Turtleneck with a coat, blazer, sports coat, or suit jacket.
The coat, blazer, sports coat and suit jacket all do well when layered over turtlenecks. They make a turtleneck look instantly more professional.
I personally love wearing my thick turtleneck top a lot with sports jacket considering that they are the most loose-fitting option, however, it surely goes with all four pieces – just ensure you choose a thin turtleneck for blazers (since they are not as loosely fitted as long men’s coat and sports jacket.
6. Turtleneck with Leather Jacket & Bomber Jacket
Leather jackets and Bomber jackets are super versatile no matter which color they come in and yes! … They go with turtlenecks.
Mix and match them in style either by pairing your turtleneck with jeans and a black leather jacket or by pairing it with a dark leather bomber jacket and black wool pants to ooze class and sophistication.
Turtlenecks have been worn by men for many many years. They are also one of the best pieces of clothing for fall and winter seasons.
