A polar neck, high neck or roll neck is one of the most underrated garments found in a wardrobe. A winter essential, the polar neck is a great base garment that has the versatility to be dressed up or down, depending on the occasion. The most important feature of this piece of clothing is the high, close-fitting neck that keeps you snug and warm.
Gumtree gives you the following tips on how to dress up your favourite polar neck this winter:
- Wearing your favourite summer dresses in winter is now possible with your trusty polar neck. Pair it with your floral dresses or maxis to be stylish and winter ready.
- Pair thick, chunky polar necks with boyfriend jeans, berets, and gold earrings for an effortless chic look.
- Team your polar neck sweater with a leather skirt or pants for an evening out. Add a stylish belt to give you a more structured silhouette.
- Find bright, colourful knit polar necks to give yourself that must needed pop of colour with your everyday jeans. Add gold hoops and a statement necklace to transition from a daytime to night-time look.
- Need a more formal look for work? Pair a bright polar neck with a formal blazer or coat to add a twist to usual office wear.
- Finally, be confident about what you wear. If you are not comfortable with polar necks and still want to try, begin with layering so you are not too self-conscious. And remember, the polar neck is highly versatile and styling it well can go a long way in your fashion game!
