One of the hardest-working basics in the stylish woman’s wardrobe has got to be a polo-neck. And this is one instance where we admit you may need more than one. Here’s why: depending on the fabric and cut, it can be everything from a layering piece to a weekend staple or finishing touch.
For an elevated daytime look, a cashmere roll-neck is the perfect knitwear to combine with smart pieces, such as a silk maxi-skirt or wide-leg trousers. Finish the look with statement boots, like this python-print pair, and your favourite bold gold accessories.
The workwear polo-neck needs to be as practical as it is stylish. This super-thin jersey blend is perfect for pairing with your favourite tailored pieces (like this divine pink suit) or layering underneath dresses as a smart-looking warmth layer.
When you’re playing with proportions, a fitted silk-blend turtleneck looks polished while balancing your silhouette. Case in point: a pair of high-waisted carrot-cut trousers worn with a fitted top half and finished off with a pair of Vega trainers for modern daytime elegance.
A mid-weight roll-neck is the perfect weekend staple, but this one is smart enough to work double-duty as a more elevated basic when you want to look a little smarter too. The roomier straight fit is super-versatile: wear with all of your denim and tucked into midi-skirts too.
