Along with the icy weather and diminishing daylight, the onset of winter brings the annoying fashion challenge of keeping warm without losing your figure to form-enveloping layers. Just how does a girl keep a clean and slender look when the wind is howling outside and you would much prefer snuggling up with a warm blanket than putting on your standard daily uniform and facing the cold? Well Iâ€™ve fallen for cowlneck sweaters. They are simply the best way to face a frosty day and there are so many lovely styles to choose from that I donâ€™t have to worry about bulky sweaters swallowing up my silhouette.
Not only that, wearing a cowlneck is like having a built-in scarf without the hassle of loose ends trailing behind you. I love this Dolce & Gabbana sweater ($213; orig. $355) because the drape of the cowl looks so luxurious and the color is red hot. Find more warm(er) weather sweaters at Bluefly.com.
