Like many fashion origins, the crew neck originates from the world of athletics. It gets its name from the types of sweaters worn by rowers in the early 1900s. The oarsmen were often referred to as 'the crew'. In time the crew neck became associated with t-shirts as well. The following will help you make the most out of your crew neck sweaters... 

Wear Your Crew Neck Sweater AS IS

Crew neck sweaters looks great even on their own. You can wear it with a pair of jeans or chinos. But... make sure the crew neck sweater is neither too tight nor too bulky. You can accessorize with a belt and even add a muffler, if you like. The important thing to remember is to color code your outfit well. If you have a tough time with colors and patterns then pick neutral colors like black, navy blue or burgundy to where, which are easier to pair up.

Wear a Shirt Under Your Sweater

You can pick a button down or a dress shirt and then add a darker shade of jeans or chinos. The safest choice is a white shirt and can really dress up the crew sweater. If you want to go for another color of shirt then make sure it matches well with your bottoms. Keep the collars of the shirt tucked in.

Wear an Untucked Shirt Under Your Sweater

Team it up with a pair of trousers. Again your safest bet is to go with a white or a black shirt but you should also try out different colors. If you are utterly hopeless at color coding then you can begin with pastel shades. They are a lot less risky.
