Trend Alert: Holy Cowl!
November 29, 2005
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.
