5 Super Chic Ways To Wear A Roll Neck This Spring

Apr 05 2018


One of the hottest looks right now is springs latest fashion trend; the roll neck. The roll neck has been around for quite some time, laying low as a wardrobe staple for the colder months. Recently we’ve seen a shift, alongside the general movement towards a more modest style, into roll necks becoming less of a staple and more of the main event.


Championed by fashion icon and designer, Victoria Beckham, and hitting street style in volume, the roll neck has appeared to take the lead as a knitted essential in every fashionistas collection. Lately, we’ve seen Victoria Beckham rocking the look with shirts, layered over knee-high boots and pairing with super-chic maxi skirts and, here at Modisme, it’s a look we’re loving.




This week, we wanted to take a look at some of the best ways to wear this classic piece in a brand-new way, representing a modest and elegant style with a fashion-forward, modern vibe. These are our favourites.


Under A Shirt

Layering a soft roll neck underneath a classic shirt, not only adds more wearability to all your shirts, but it’s a simple and trend-led way to create street style layers.

Teamed With A Dress

The slip dress is big again for spring so the roll neck allows modest dressers to enjoy the look in a covered and sophisticated way. If you opt for a satin slip dress, why not try a statement roll neck beneath like this electric blue velvet underneath black satin.

Under A Cosy Knit

Despite it being the beginning of spring now, the chill in the UK is still frighteningly apparent. The silver lining to this freakish weather is that we can wear and enjoy our knitwear for a little bit longer than normal. Layering a roll neck beneath your knit looks stylish and also adds some extra warmth. Pairing the high neck staple with a low V-neck knitted sweater can also be a great way to add coverage to a dipped neckline and stay right on trend.

Under A Shirt Dress

Victoria Beckham taught us the best way to layer when it comes to roll necks and shirt dresses. A simple roll neck in a fine knit can pull the colours out of a chic, printed shirt dress, adding interest and nailing the trend in one.

Styled With Statement Trousers or Skirt

If you feel like a break from layering, why not style your favourite chunky roll neck with a statement pair of trousers or maxi skirt. Keep colours neutral so the bottom half of the look can do all the talking.

Under A Tee & Blazer

Blazers are back in a big way and especially plaid blazers. So, try layering a simple and chic roll neck underneath a logo tee (Gucci works perfectly!) and throw over an oversized check blazer to finish the look with a polished, yet street style vibe.
