Mistakes to Avoid while Wearing a Turtleneck with Suit

  • Avoid wearing a turtleneck that is too loose or too tight; your neck movement has to be easy while walking or eating.
  • Use light fabric for your turtleneck, mixed in cotton. Bulky fabrics or excessive layering can create a lumpy silhouette.
  • The neck of the turtleneck should be way below your ears, and the length must end at or slightly below the waistband of the trousers.
  • Do not accessorise this combination with bags or hats etc, unless you are out in the sun for a while. Then too, we will suggest, go for sunglasses.
