Fall Essentials: The Turtleneck Sweater

A turtleneck, also known as a roll neck, is a classic menswear piece that never really gets the credit or attention that it deserves but it is one of those items that every guy should own.

As I continue with the “Fall Essentials” series, it leads me to one of my favorite alternatives to the traditional shirt and tie, the turtleneck sweater.

If you’re undecided on whether or not a turtleneck is suitable for you, ask yourself these 3 questions.

Do you enjoy practicing minimalism?

Are you having a hard time creating different shirt and tie combinations?

Do you want to look elegant and stylish during the fall and winter seasons without trying too hard?

If you’ve answered yes to any of those questions, then a turtleneck shirt/sweater is definitely for you!

I’ve been rocking turtleneck’s for a while now and the thing that I appreciate most about them is how quickly they can elevate your outfit.

For instance, you can pair it with a suit and wear it to work, or you can pair it with a leather jacket and create a badass 70’s inspired look.

Or you can simply pair it with a blazer and jeans for a night out on the town with your lady!

Brown is definitely an extremely versatile color for the fall, especially if you wear brown as often as I do.

However, you can also consider a grey, navy, black, or even a burgundy turtleneck to add some more flavor to your fall wardrobe.

The key is to wear a neutral color so that it can really make your jacket or blazer stand out!
