You'll be amazed at how flattering a well-cut jersey or knitted roll neck can be, and short sleeved ones are perfect for coupling with pencil skirts and slim jeans for a mod-goes-80s look. They'll suit most body shapes (pick a good quality fabric to skim those lumpy bits), but it's a look that's best avoided if you're anything above a C cup. Tops like this turn large boobs into shelves, unfortunately.

Black ruched sleeve roll neck £22 Miss Selfridge
This great piece is exclusive to London stores and the website, and is bound to sell out of both very quickly. The tie belt is really great for creating a waist and giving you a really hourglass figure, and the detail on the neck and sleeves will help square off your shoulders. Gorgeous!

Jersey 'Curly turtleneck' top $48 Anthropologie
In a sheer jersey fabric with a good long length, this is great for layering, and is available in a good selection of colours. The edges have a frilled edge, giving the look a softer, girlier feel.

Rib trim turtleneck sweater $17.80 Forever 21
- Great for those who've still not managed to lose those extra Christmas pounds, this bargain top can be bunched up around the hips to hide your sins. The cute bunched up sleeves add a nice touch, and the neck is looser than some, giving you more room to breathe!
