How to Layer a Roll Neck Jumper

Roll neck jumpers are one of my favourite winter items as they’re not only a great winter warmer but offer a classy look that can transcend between casual and smart so easily when layered with the right combination. For a minimal smart-casual layered look that achieves maximum impact with minimal effort, try reworking a roll neck by tucking the jumper into a pair of modern fit trousers whilst completing the look with a sharp overcoat. This look can be reworked as either a weekday or weekend outfit, due to its versatility the look would work just as well in a boardroom as it would do in a bar on an evening out.

The key to achieving this relatively minimal look is to use a subtle statement in the form of a print, colour or check pattern. Which in this case is established by the check pattern trousers, but this is not to take anything away from the check overcoat which works very well to create a strong silhouette and bring a premium touch to the layering being achieved. Below let’s have a look at each of the items in more detail that make up this smart casual minimal look.
