The turtleneck is our true fashion friend. And there is something so youthful and smart about a turtleneck sweater. It has of course been a fashion detail that has been hard to miss over the past twelve months, but also, if you look back at those gorgeous vintage black and white prints of our favourite style icons, there they are in their black roll necks. Audrey Hepburn in Funny Face, Juliet Greco singing on stage, François Hardy “main dans les mains”, great worn with short hair or indeed long. It covers the neck in the most stylish way and flatters the jaw line. This season it is being worn every which way and by all ages. Always a Beatnik favourite with the leather jacket and your simple Capri Trouser – in which Winser do a fab offer of colours for just £79, or perhaps Winser Jeans, £125; it also works well under your suit in black and is a foil for sharp colours.
