A ‘must have’ of men’s fashion for winter 2018 is the turtleneck. Yes, exactly the turtleneck sweater coming directly from the Nineties in a revival sponsored by the major brands of men’s fashion.
In fact, many designers have proposed the turtleneck sweater again in a new, contemporary version, characterized by form-fitting and glam qualities.
It’s an item that went unharmed through the decades; in fact, in Italy it is named after Fellini’s masterwork, ‘dolcevita’, worn by the protagonist played by Marcello Mastroianni in the Sixties.
The main characteristic of turtleneck is its neck that clings to the throat of those who wear it. Warm, soft, wrapping and eclectic, this type of sweater can be adapted to different outfits.
The turtlenecks ‘dictated’ by 2018 men’s fashion are made of cashmere, as those proposed by Burberry with their regular fitting, ideal both with classical trousers and more informal outfits.
The turtlenecks by Hardy Amies are also in cashmere, in light gray colors and to be combined with jeans and leather sneakers.
The wool models presented by Zara are informal and easy, proposed in different colors and with a tight-fitting style. Paul Smith’s sweaters are also in soft wool and solid color, while Hugo Boss’ model is night blue.
For those who love colors, there are the proposals in red wool by Mr. P and lawn green with contrasting stripes by Todd Synder.
Colored or monochromatic, in cashmere or wool, turtlenecks remains a ‘must have’ of men’s fashion for Winter 2018.
