16 of the Best Rollnecks to Cosy Up in This Christmas
Whether you prefer a slim-fit or a chunky knit, you’re in luck as we’ve searched the high-street and beyond to reveal the best roll necks out there right now. The best bit? Most are on sale NOW.
Cable-Knit Belted Vest – COS – £79.00
If you’re after something that ticks off three seasonal trends: (1) a rollneck, (2) a muted tone and (3) a sweater vest, then this COS piece may just be just the number. What’s more, the belted waist tie makes this more flattering than the average sweater vest but has the versatility of being untied after you let yourself loose on all of the pigs in blankets and prosecco this Christmas. What’s not to love?
Cream Long Sleeve Rollneck Tunic – River Island – £28.00
If 2020 has given you a new-found love for loungewear that you’re not quite ready to give up, then this rollneck is perfect for you. It’s essentially an elevated piece of loungewear, and you can even purchase the matching bottoms should you take your loungewear seriously (like us).
Classic Rollneck Jumper in ‘Currant’ – London Cashmere Co – £119.00
Next up we have a more classic piece from the small but successful retailer, London Cashmere Co. This piece is loose with a longer body, making it great for layering – or for those who plan on eating all the pies at Christmas (hands up). Available in 12 shades from classic muted to bright pops, our fav for the festive season is ‘currant’. Funny that…
Dogtooth Printed Roll neck – HOBBS – £32.00
Hobbs is renowned for its high-quality clothing that really lasts. This printed roll neck exception. Available in a range of colours, our personal favourite is the monochromatic dogtooth check, which would look gorgeous teamed with black, cobalt blue, Christmas tree green, or holly red. Simply style yours up under a sleeveless dress, an A-Line skirt or black trousers for a simple but chic Christmas outfit. Oh, and did we mention that it’s currently on sale – reduced from £39?
Chunky Knit Recycled Rollneck – Baukjen – £111.00
If you don’t own a chunky knit for optimum cosiness, then this one from London-based womenswear brand, Baukjen, is definitely worth considering. It’s subtle, chic and classically cosy but doesn’t have the added (unfortunate) bulk that comes with most chunky knits. It’s a sustainable piece made from recyclable wool – meaning it’s warm and thick, but the sustainable fibres allow it to be a timeless piece that will last for many, many years. What’s more, it’s currently on sale for £111, down from £149. Did we just add another item to your Christmas wish-list? I think so.
Fitted Rollneck Glitter Sweater – &OtherStories – £24.00
Would this really be a rollneck round-up without a little bit of glamour? Obviously, &Other Stories are here to save the day with this sweater. Perfect for a dressed-up Christmas day or even a night of disco dancing (on your kitchen tiles) for New Year, this will do the trick. It’s also constructed for a fitted, flattering second-skin silhouette. We’d recommend teaming it with your most trusted black trousers and some silver earrings – statement or subtle depending on your personal style – and you’ll be good for go. Again, we’re letting you onto a real winner with this one as it’s only £24, down from £35, which saves you almost a third (31%)!
Leopard-Print Rollneck – GANNI – £73.00
If we had to create a list of the biggest ‘It Girl’ brands of 2020, GANNI would sure as hell be a strong contender. With a Scandinavian history, they certainly know how to create pieces that balance style with longevity. That’s why it should come as no surprise that they’ve made it onto our rollneck round-up with this leopard print number. Why? Because they’ve transformed a classic silhouette into an on-trend must-have by incorporating the most popular pattern of the season: leopard. And let’s be honest – this outfit is a lewk. And a cheaper one than expected as it’s currently on sale for £105, which is a 30% saving.
Overlapping Rollneck Jumper – The Kooples – £112.50
Here’s another high-end piece, but a bargain one at that. This subtle rollneck is currently half price on The Kooples site (reduced from £250.00), however, it’s worth keeping in mind that Fenwick has also started to stock The Kooples, should you want to see it in person. For us, what makes this particular piece a top pick is the overlapping element at the bottom as well as its flared sleeves – both of which give a classic silhouette a modern upgrade.
Organic Cotton Rollneck in ‘Rosewood’ – Everlane – £26.00
The sustainable (but affordable) brand, Everlane, is well renowned for their essential pieces made of nothing but materials that have been constructed in the most ethical factories. That’s why Everlane really can say that their rollneck “is an icon for a reason” with confidence. Not only is it flattering with its slim fit and laid-back feel, but it’s a purchase that comes with a backstory, as you’re able to look at the factory it was produced in. Oh, and if you’re not into this colour – it’s also available in three others.
Colour-Block Rollneck Poncho – Apricot – £39.00
If you’re after something a little bit more alternative, then this rollneck ensemble may just be the one for you. It’s by British indie brand, Apricot, who champion playful prints on classic silhouettes. You really will wear this all winter long as it can help jazz up any outfit or be the perfect blanket-esque ensemble when working from home. Personally, we’d pair it with some dark coloured denim, knee-high boots and a fedora (yes, just like this model).
Ruched Detailing Rollneck Sweater – Have to Love – £19.99
If you’re looking to purchase a rollneck whilst supporting a local business at the same time, then this piece from Gosforth based, Have to Love, is worth checking out. With its ruched sleeves, fitted style and simplicity in design, it’ll no doubt become one of your most loved winter wardrobe staples, and you get your money’s worth in terms of outfit options. And as the cheapest item on our roundup at less than £20, this palatable price tag makes it an instant match made in fashion heaven with your purse.
Striped Rib Short Sleeve Rollneck – Jigsaw – £49.00
‘A short-sleeved jumper in winter? And in the North?’ you may be thinking. Hear us out. This striped number from Jigsaw is actually the most versatile jumper out of all those featured. It’s a sweater, so is snug enough for winter, however, we’ll let you onto a secret here: It has a mock-neck turtleneck on top – making it a secret style weapon for spring, too. You can wear this one pretty much all year round. We’d style with black leather trousers in winter, and a denim a-line skirt in spring – showing that it really is the jumper that can do both.
Rollneck Vest in ‘Pastel Green’ – Mango – £35.99
We really couldn’t create a rollneck round-up and not feature another sweater vest! They’re just too on-trend to not talk about twice. Plus, this one comes in the most delicious of pistachio colours. Sure, whilst not many of us would have been seen dead wearing one a couple of years ago, it’s now the silhouette of the season (that’s fashion for ya). Simply, team it with a trusty blouse underneath and let the knitwear do the talking.
Wool Cashmere Blend Rollneck in ‘Baby Blue’ – REISS – £145.00
Whilst there’s no denying that the dreary weather has us reaching for our darkest clothing most days, we’re here to urge you to add a pop of colour into your wardrobe for an instant mood boost! With its baby blue shade and cashmere blend for extra cosiness, it certainly won’t leave you feeling blue.
Rollneck with Cutaway Arms in ‘Chocolate Brown’ – MANGO – £35.99
Chocolate brown has been one of the ‘it’ colours of 2020 and we’ve been super happy about it. This gorge Mango number has cutaway arms for added style points as well as a soft rib for comfort. We’d paid this with cream wide-leg trousers and a cream coat for a cookies and cream inspired outfit combo. (Yes, that’s a thing at HLN).
Balloon Sleeved Rollneck in ‘Fog’ – Pieces – £40.00
At a first glance, this sweater may look simple, but don’t be fooled. These flattering balloon sleeves make for a super cosy vibe, with fitted cuffs adding sophistication. We recommend wearing this one with a bold red lip and your favourite trousers for an outfit that lets the upper half do the talking.
