Why The V Neck Is Back In The Spotlight

Fashion loves to keep a man guessing, but for a long time now the one thing you haven’t had to agonize over is your neckline. The rule was simple: crew necks are good; V-necks are bad. Depending on its depth, the V was exclusively for part-time golfers or full-time LADS.

The V reflects a desire for more normcore dressing. “In an age of such global political uncertainty, it is unsurprising that fashion turns to the familiar and the comforting.” And nothing’s more comforting than knitwear.

The new rule of V-necks is that there are no rules. They’re not just for Bill Gates and golf clubs, or at the other extreme. The V has won an unlikely fashion victory. And the opportunities to wear one are boundless.

 

Suit Up
Just don’t be tempted to color too far outside the lines, literally – V-necks may come in a rainbow of shades, but it’s best to keep things basic and let the neckline do the lifting.

Texture Mixing
If that all feels a little too geographer teacher for you, consider toughening up the V-neck with a leather biker jacket.

The Cricket Sweater
They look best with tailored trousers or jeans and an overcoat, with or without anything underneath. Consider it athleisure for people who’d never dignify the word.

With Bare Skin
If you’re blessed with Gosling-like looks, then you can steal his Riviera moves and style a V-necked knit au naturel. But to toe the fine line between class and lechery, stick to muted shades and fine fabrics, like wool-silk blends, merino or cashmere. And just take care not to wink at anyone.
