Slim fitting and sexy, the layering roll neck makes it to the urban jungle
As soon as it gets cold outside, out come the roll neck jumpers, preferably sleek and slim fitting, and with a neck that seriously fits. I have a personal great dislike of roll necks that pretend to do the job but slide down your neck during the day, or, even worse, don’t stay up there from the get go.
Roll necks are the perfect first layer because you can put pretty much anything over them, from jackets and parkas to a cardigan or sleeveless puffa. You can wear a scarf if you want to, or not, either way you’ll stay warm in the freeze whilst others shiver.
You can wear a roll neck, thermal, cashmere, merino or jersey in any weather, for smart or casual. I know that there are those who will never wear one of these, but to me, when it get’s cold, frankly there’s nothing cosier than a fitted roll neck, and living out in the wilds of Bucks much of the time I know these things. Finer knit roll necks work everywhere, from town to country. And you can’t have too many.
