Roll necks are making a major comeback this season and coming in fabrics such as silk and wool, they are proving to be versatile pieces which can be worn for any occasion.
Victoria Beckham put13 show in New York. The British designer’s collection was made up entirely of high-necked items this year and the models pulled them off perfectly. Victoria used bright colours such as blue and yellow and didn’t stick to just one fabric for the finished pieces. Some of her tops also had wide sleeves, which gave more focus to the models’ snug necklines. With their hair tied back and simple eye make-up, the girls’ facial features were given extra definition.
Marc by Marc Jacobs’s line was a blast from the past. The fashion star created a sophisticated and classy collection using simply tones such as red, navy, green and purple. One roll neck in particular stood out – a white long-sleeved midi dress, which featured an autumnal leaf pattern. The model wearing the elegant piece’s lipstick and handbag were matched to the shade of the leaves. Her long hair was left down and given a frizzy finish and the final look was completed with big sunglasses. By wearing hair down the style was given a modern and subtle vibe.
Ports 1961 stayed true to the era its named after with its Fall/Winter 13 range. The fashion house aimed to tackle low temperatures with their cosy numbers, such as a black and white roll neck chequered jumper and a grey roll neck woollen dress. Designer Fiona Cibani used muted toned for the collection aside from the occasional splash of colour. Darker colours are perfect for first-time roll neck wearers as less attention is drawn to the neck than with bright tones.
Wear one of these pieces with skinny jeans or tucked into a high-waisted skirt to really emphasise your stature. With Christmas around the corner, perhaps a festive party is the perfect opportunity to try one out.
