It’s All About the Neck…

It’s all about the neck this winter, and that means hiding your neck under a jumper with either a roll, polo, or turtle neck.

In a nod to that 1970s trend that we cannot escape this winter, the polo neck is back. It’s not that easy to wear, it can be unflattering around the face area, and can make a larger chest look even bigger. But it can be a thing of beauty. You can wear it under dresses, tops, other jumpers, pinafores, and more! It’s uber-versatile. Buy a thin one and think of it as a fashionista base layer!

We love this navy blue polo from H&M (£29.99) – tight fitting and cosy.

If you want supersoft and silky on the skin, then try H&M’s cashmere sweater (£49.99).

French Connection’s grey 100% cashmere rollneck  (£135) is a loose fit for a casual Sunday stroll perhaps?

New Look’s neutral chunky rollneck (£29.99) looks like the cosiest knit we’ve ever seen – imagine cosying up in this!

If a polo is too high, then a lower turtleneck (£15) might do the job. BHS have this gorgeous super soft version in tons of colours.

And of course, they also do a classic polo neck (£15) – and we love this bright blue, which will look brilliant with this season’s 1970s inspired tans and browns.

These necks aren’t just for cosy daytime looks though – check out H&M’s full sequinned version (£29.99) for a party top!

At Debenhams, Principles by Ben De Lisi have a fantastic sleeveless version (£35), perfect with a skirt and a jacket for an alternative work ‘shirt’ perhaps?

GAP’s classic black ribbed polo neck (£24.95) is just that  – a classic. And every wardrobe should have one this winter.

New Look’s striped effort (£19.99) will not flatter everyone, so just be careful with this one – but we do love it.

Finally, how about New Look’s turtleneck ribbed, slinky dress (£24.99) for 1970s perfection? Team with an oversize cardigan or wrap, boots, and a floppy hat. Sorted.
