With the winter approaching us, there’s one item that every man should have in his closet: a turtleneck. This basic item definitely keeps you warm, but still has a corny image to most people.

This season the designers showed us that this classic piece can look cool, by giving it an exciting twist, like using bright colors and prints or mixing different fabrics and textures. For instance British designer John Richmond, who let his models walk down the runway in a roll-neck revised with small fur and leather patches. And Dior gave it a cool and masculine touch, combining it with loose pants and an oversized blazer.  All these different looks emphasize the good thing about the turtleneck: you can wear it in many ways.
