High necks haven’t had their day just yet. While they’ve been looked at as a mumsy-type piece in the past, their return to the market is now better, and more stylish than ever. If their extra-cosy effect isn’t enough to get you onto this trend, perhaps a little inspiration from the street style stars could do the trick. As far as we’re concerned, the higher the neckline, the better.
Browse through our gallery below to see how a tight turtleneck top, relaxed chunky sweater or feminine dress can easily incorporate into your own personal style. We’re talking casual-cool, preppy, ladylike, sexy (you read that right) and sophisticated edge. Find out how to work it into your existing wardrobe, plus check out our top shopping picks from the web.

You wouldn’t think it, but the high neck is actually pretty sexy when you go for a tighter fit or darker colours. It also creates the illusion of a bigger bust.Photo: Don Arnold/WireImage
