From the beatnik era to Steve Jobs’ habitual donning of this staple piece, the turtleneck’s place in fashion and pop culture has been storied. Though it looks good as a stand-alone item, the power of the turtleneck lies in the layering opportunities it affords — whether combined with outerwear pieces or worn under a loose-fitting tee or camp collar shirt. A host of brands, from Prada to A-COLD-WALL*, continue to drop new spins on the turtleneck, and luxe retailers like MATCHESFASHION are stocked up with the high-neck goods.
Roll-neck pieces were a pretty central part of Prada’s SS19 show, hitting the runway under a color-heavy rotation of silk shirts and blazers. Though featured in the Spring/Summer collection, pieces like this light logo roll-neck from the Italian fashion house are perfect for fall, when paired with open shirts and jackets.
For a more weighty option, Swedish favorite Acne Studios serves up the ribbed roll-neck sweater, a thick wool piece ideal for covering up from the jaw down when the temperature drops.
