Grey turtleneck knits are versatile and can be worn in a variety of tones to create different looks!

The gray turtleneck is a versatile item that can be used in a variety of situations as a semi-formal item as well as a casual item, as it is highly coordinated with other colors and easily blends in with any color items. Gray, an achromatic color between black and white, comes in a wide range of shades, so it has a clean look when lightened, and a cool appeal when darkened, as it becomes more like black. Another appeal of gray is its ease of use, either as a complement to the main color or as a cushion between complementary colors.

Turtlenecks are a great way to keep warm, so it’s easy to achieve a sophisticated look without resorting to layering!

Turtlenecks are also a good winter sweater that brings warmth to the neck area, and are ideal for a smart winter look without a scarf, stole, or snood, which tends to make people feel overdressed. Generally in Japan, turtlenecks are in full swing from mid-November, when it starts to feel chilly even during the daytime, and can be worn until mid-March, when it remains cold in the mornings and evenings.

How to choose a gray turtleneck knit?

When choosing a gray turtleneck as an inner layer for an overcoat or tailored jacket, a plain, high gauge, simple knitting fabric is best.

The opposite is true of low-gauge, loose-fitting or oversized gray turtlenecks, which have an outstanding presence and are perfect as the main top, but they may ruin the silhouette of your beautiful outerwear or cause you to look overstuffed and stylish. It is suitable as an inner layer for casual outerwear such as down jackets, mountain parkas, and bomber jackets.

In any case, when styling a gray turtleneck knit, remember that there are different points of choice depending on whether you want to use it as a beautiful inner layer or as a single top to play the leading role. For those who prefer a mix of clean and casual styles, a mid-gauge gray turtleneck that falls between high and low gauges is a good choice.
