With the cold weather coming into England thick and fast, I’ve been raiding my wardrobe for the comfiest knits I can find. A mock neck sweater has always been a favourite of mine, especially for the autumn and winter time. They effortlessly add a classier edge to your outfits, and although they run the risk of making you worthy of announcing the next iPhone, I love the look they give.
I picked up this black mock neck sweater from French Connection last year (it’s currently out of stock but I’ve linked similar below), and nabbed a similar camel-coloured roll neck sweater (which is currently £14 down from £25) earlier this season. Personally, I have quite a long neck, so I’m a big fan of the shortening that a mock neck gives rather than a crew neck that accentuates.
I’ve been finding any excuse to pull these jumpers out of the wardrobe, and since Scott and I spent a weekend exploring our home village, I thought it would be a fun edge to wear while we did so. I realised earlier this month that I never really shoot inside the village we grew up in, and I want to do more of that. With its quintessentially British brown-brick cottages and lamp-lit pubs.
I’ve linked similar jumpers throughout this post, as well as roll and turtle neck sweaters, too. I’d love to know whether you’d wear a mock neck often, and if so – which is your favourite kind of neck? Mock, roll or turtle?
With the weather dropping five degrees again this week, this will probably be one of the last that I can get away without wearing a coat – which I love the look of when wearing a mock neck, too. Since the neck is shorter than a roll or turtle – and a single piece of fabric as opposed to a roll – it seamlessly blends into a shirt rather than a sweater. Although I do love that on a chunkier knit like a roll or turtle neck, too.
Pin this for later!
