Turtlenecks are a classic, iconic piece that have been brought back to life with a modern edge and retro feel. In the 60s and 70s – turtlenecks worn with suits were a common combo in the workplace, ahem Mad Men. Then in the 90’s to early 2000’s – the iconic tech legend – Steve Job’s, made a black turtleneck part of his signature style and uniform. Today, turtlenecks have been revived by designers and music artists who have proved them to be a timeless item for all. Below I am going to show how men can style and wear a turtleneck this Fall.
Men, if you are looking to change up your look, but don’t want to make any drastic changes to your wardrobe – start by introducing a clean, classic black turtleneck to your wardrobe. Besides wearing it alone with some black jeans, here are 3 more ways on how to style a turtleneck this Fall.
P.S. Turtlenecks accentuate one’s facial features.
1. MINIMAL SLEEK – THIN BLACK TURTLENECK PAIRED WITH A TRENCH COAT
The easiest way to try this style is by wearing a thin, not chunky, black turtleneck paired with a trench coat and black pants. This is an elegant, minimal, sleek, yet retro future outfit so you don’t want to introduce more than two colors – keep them neutral. You can either go for a mod-rock Heidi Slimane look and wear black head-to-toe (topcoat, turtleneck, pants, shoes, and sunglasses) or go with a less French, more London look with all black and a tan coat. Mix up the look for a more street style look by adding a snapback and gold chain.
2. RETRO CASUAL – THIN BLACK TURTLENECK PAIRED WITH A LEATHER JACKET
For a more artsy, Bob Dylan inspired look – pair a think black turtleneck with a black leather jacket and some shades.
3. RETRO FUTURE SUITED – THIN BLACK TURTLENECK PAIRED WITH A SUIT
The turtleneck is versatile and able to be worn for many occasions. Try wearing a black turtleneck under a black or charcoal grey suit for a modern man, Steve McQueen meets Migos retro future look.
