The High-Necked Knit – A Style Guide

Possibly best known as Steve Job's staple, the Turtleneck can take you everywhere this autumn. Here's how the high-necked knit can fit into your travel wardrobe.

INTO THE WILD

A corduroy safari-style suit in a nature-inspired print stands out, no matter where you are. With a similar slight ’70s vibe, a dark turtleneck makes for a muted counterbalance.

ANYTHING BUT BASIC

While the turtleneck is typically thought to be an unassuming and cosy staple, this particular take –with its contrasting collar and cuffs, and vivid abstract print – stands perfectly well on its own.

FANTASTIC VOYAGE

A brown cable-knit top adds texture with a classic edge to a crisp nautical-inspired dark suit, and works well whether you’re travelling by sea or otherwise.

LAYERS OF INTEREST

When in cooler climes, covering up with big and bulky pieces can overwhelm one’s frame. Instead, wear several thin layers so you’re both snug and stylish.

HAVE IT ALL

Worn with tailored separates, a comfy knit top adds a touch of ease – while its high neck keeps the look on the dressy side (the look just wouldn’t be the same with a V-neck).
