Nothing can be more comfortable on a cold day than a men's turtleneck sweater. With the wide range of styles and colors available, there is sure to be something to match your taste.

About Wearing Turtlenecks

Many men prefer to wear a turtleneck sweater on a cool winter's day to keep warm and cozy while looking their best. There are many ways to wear a turtleneck and they can be easily incorporated into an existing wardrobe. Turtleneck sweaters can be worn alone or layered with other items. For example, instead of a dress shirt under your sport coat, try a cashmere turtleneck sweater. Turtlenecks look great with jeans or khaki pants. They can be worn under leather jackets or worn under a ski coat. There are endless combinations for a turtleneck.

You may even want to try a turtleneck in a bright color to add a pop of color to your winter wardrobe. Look for turtlenecks in simple styles that can be worn from season to season. A turtleneck may be a simple sweater, but if you pair it with the right items, it can look sleek and classy.

Some looks to consider include:

  • A fine gauge turtleneck in a slim style in a dark shade such as black or gray can be worn with a dressy pair of pants and look great for a night at the bar or a club.
  • Wear a heavy knit under your ski coat for a day on the slopes.
  • A soft knit can be worn under a tailored jacket with a pair of dress pants for a professional look.
  • Pair a ribbed knit turtleneck with jeans and loafers for a dinner date. Take along a suede jacket to wear if the restaurant is cold.

As you can tell, the combinations are up to you. Wear your sweater to match you personal style. Sometimes just a change in color can liven up your outfit. Turtlenecks come in a wide range of colors from your basic black to the brightest yellow. Choose a fun color that is in for the season to add a fresh element to your existing wardrobe.
