This blast from the past has Calvin Klein and Balmain to thank for its oh-so stylish comeback after dominating the designers’ recent autumn/winter shows. A key element for this season, the tight- fitting turtleneck is a versatile blank canvas for building any look for any occasion. Wear it as a basic under a sleeveless dress, as an extra warm layer under a shirt or with a highwaisted skirt, bomber jacket draped nonchalantly over your shoulders, to create a sumptuous layered look.
OFFICE STYLE Although it is best to steer clear of cropped turtlenecks, they work quite well with high-waisted trousers or layered the new way, over a fitted shirt. Whereas oversized knits tend to be too frumpy for the oce, a structured, oversized turtleneck is the exception. Casually tucked into a pencil skirt or a pair of cropped, tailored trousers, it makes a sophisticated impression and is a very comfortable day to night look.
Fashion blogger Pernille Teisbaek, in head-to-toe Chanel on day eight of Paris Fashion Week Autumn/ Winter 2015, perfectly demonstrated how to use a cropped turtleneck as a balancing tool if you don’t want to show too much skin but do want to take a fashion risk that’s guaranteed to pay o. To give your fitted, crop top a cool, fresh look, contrast it with high-waisted bottoms (think denims or culottes) and add a denim jacket for a relaxed daytime look or swap your jacket for a boyfriend blazer and heels for the evening.
