If you’re looking to add some knitwear to your wardrobe this season, top of your list should be a couple of turtlenecks. This versatile silhouette can be dressed up or dressed down. A fine merino can be worn under a double-breasted blazer à la Michael Kors. Véronique Nichanian at Hermès paired a chunky roll-neck with narrow trousers, but they can easily be swapped with jeans for a more casual vibe.
