HOW TO WEAR A ROLL NECK? 

Welcome to Fashionable Franks guide to wearing to The Roll Neck. A knitted jumper fashion faux pas we can liken to Ron Burgundy’s attempts at flattering women OR a staple piece of a Man’s Autumn / Winter Wardrobe who desires style as well as warmth! This begs the question “How To Wear A Roll Neck?” Set back and relax as Fashionable Frank shall guide you through this relatively high fashion piece of mens clothing.

I like the Roll Neck. In this blog post I shall show you fashion outfits and style tips when wearing your Roll Neck. The much maligned Roll Neck will spark compliments or criticism, so brace yourself for this. Get your Roll Neck fashion right and you will have a stylish platform to build an outfit from.

WHY A ROLL NECK?

It is stylish, warm and comes in a variety of colours. This helps when it comes to layering. Mens fashion layering is important in  Autumn / Winter for two reasons; 1) warmth and 2) style. There doesn’t have to be a trade off between warmth and style in my opinion. Opting for a Roll Neck will greatly increase your outfit choices. Variety is the spice of life after all! Regardless of your interest in fashion the Roll Neck is a piece of mens clothing to consider buying and wearing. Lets have a look at some pictures to emphasise my point.

WEAR THE ROLL NECK WITH A BOMBER JACKET

The Bomber Jacket is THE must have coat of 2016. A few years ago it was the Parka who took our hard earned cash. Mens Fashion is very trendy at the minute and following trends can be expensive. I suggest investing in a statement bomber jacket in a versatile fabric. Mine is faux suede from River Island and can be dressed for any occasion! Read my guide on HOW TO WEAR A BOMBER JACKET here for more mens fashion and style tips. Now, lets roll with it…..lol

I based these outfits around the burgundy Roll Neck I bought from Burton Menswear. Burgundy is a fantastic Autumn and Winter colour. Burgundy also contrasts well with navy and tan/camel. Every man should have burgundy in their Autumn and Winter wardrobe!

OUTFIT ONE

A classic burgundy and navy mens fashion and mens style combination. Simply contrast two strong opposing colours and you have a great go-to outfit worthy of any occasion. Adding some accessories always helps in my opinion in this case a scarf. I added my beloved Burgundy Chelsea Boots to finish off the look. Rolling up the ends of my skinny jeans adds a bit of character whilst showing off the Chelsea Boots in all their glory!

OCCASIONS I WEAR THIS FOR;

Heading out shopping or meeting friends, going out fashion and date night fashion

OUTFIT TWO

Keeping with the classic burgundy and navy outfit I added some grey jeans. In my opinion, grey is woefully underused colour in menswear regardless of the season. Invest in a pair of grey jeans to change up your fashion and style choices. They look great with everything as we can see

THE TAN BOMBER JACKET

Mens fashion is dominated by neutral tones at the moment, in particular tan/camel. For more on what the neutral tones are and how to wear them, read my blog post on them here. How To Wear A Roll Neck? Wear it with tan/camel colour. A Roll Neck is a great piece of clothing to wear for not only style and fashion purposes but also for practicality – they are warm! I decided to wear grey jeans with this outfit because they add a contrast. I love to contrast colours, tan/camel works incredibly well grey.

WEAR A ROLL NECK WITH A BLAZER AND WAISTCOAT

I love providing mens fashion inspiration in particular different style ideas for you guys and gals. In this case teaming a Roll Neck with 2 pieces of fashion I love to wear, a Blazer and a Waistcoat. When the weather gets cold the idea of layering a Roll Neck under your more dapper pieces is an attractive proposition. You will certainly benefit from the added warmth of knitwear and if you get your layering right you don’t have to sacrifice looking good either. A win – win! To achieve this we turn to Autumn and Winter favourite colours, navy and burgundy. The Blazer and Waistcoat are more of a wine red than burgundy however that is not the point here. The contrasting colours complementing each other and looking great is! Consider wearing a Roll Neck with suit for  dress down Friday at work?

WEAR A ROLL NECK WITH A TAN OVER COAT

The Tan Overcoat is certainly one the most sought after mens fashion trends of 2016. I invested in one in September and I have worn it a lot so far this Autumn / Winter. The versatility of the Tan Overcoat is one of the reasons I bought it. It works with every style you can think of from dapper to street style. I recommend buying one! I bought mine from River Island and heres the link to it. The Tan Overcoats versatility stretches to another versatile piece of mens clothing, our Roll Neck! In this case I have opted for the burgundy and tan / camel combination again because it looks great. Once again the burgundy Chelsea Boots make an appearance! When I shop trendy pieces like Chelsea Boots or Bomber Jackets I pick alternative colours like Burgundy as these colours add different quirky elements to my outfits. Its good to be different!

I bought my Roll Necks from Burton Menswear who have a great 2 for €50 on them which you can find here. My suggestion is to go with colours which complement your existing wardrobe palette. For me burgundy and navy are the reliables and will work well with most other colours. When in doubt try a contrast!

OCCASIONS I WEAR THIS FOR;

Everyday…..is a fashion show so ensure you always look good!

I love to experiment with my fashion. Style is such a personal thing and it requires work. It doesn’t just happen, there is a lot of trial and error involved. So don’t be shy and give it a try!
