Traditionally, with the onset of cold weather, our wardrobe begins to be occupied by cozy knitwear. So even in the most inclement weather, you can feel like you are in a warm blanket. In addition to bright cardigans, sweaters with fun prints from 90’s and pillar dresses, roll-neck knitted collar will become one of the top trends this year. Such collars can be worn both as an independent wardrobe item in multi-layered looks or used as an alternative to a woolen scarf. Stay tuned because we’re going to tell you what colors and styles to bet on this season and what this piece of wardrobe will be most harmoniously combined with.
Despite the fact that a roll-neck knitted collar have gained particular popularity in the last few seasons, they were invented back in the 16th century in Venice. At that time it was trendy for noble ladies to wear dresses with deep cutouts. So as not to freeze in bad weather, they covered themselves with such "detachable details". Roll-neck collars of the day were as elegant as possible - they were decorated with embroidery, precious stones and other spectacular details.
Modern items look either like high collars, or like vests, but without seams on the sides, or like capes up to the middle of the shoulder. Some designers complement them with zippers or buttons, which is typical for the apres-ski style. They can be made from cashmere or from a wool / cotton blend. When choosing a rollneck collar, pay attention to the quality of the fabric - it should be pleasant to the touch, thornless and rather dense to keep warm even in severe frosts.
You can wear a roll-neck collar in two different ways: going outside, you can combine it with a coat, jacket, puffer, sheepskin coat and any other outerwear that you don't want to hide under long scarves. On the other hand, the roll-neck collar is ideal for outfits in which you plan to wear indoors. In this case, plain shirts, turtlenecks, oversized jackets and, no doubt, dresses will be perfectly matched. If you want the outfit to look more strict, opt for monochromatic options in muted shades. If, on the contrary, you do not have enough bright details, then take a look at items with prints, leather inserts or lurex.
Today, roll-neck collars are presented in the collections of many brands. So, we are sure that everyone will find the model just for them. The trendiest options are in our selection.
