Q:

How do you wear a cowl-neck sweater?

A:

Cowl-neck sweaters should be minimally accessorized and balanced with other outfit pieces, because they add bulk and detail to the neckline. Necklaces are not recommended because they compete with the cowl, but bold earrings and bangles are complementary jewelry accessories.

Shoe choice is important for balancing the volume of the cowl neck. Boots and ankle booties provide a solid counterbalance and create a proportionate outfit, but dainty shoes create a top-heavy appearance. Belts also help to balance the volume at the neck by cinching in the narrowest part of the waist. A lacy camisole is a good layering piece if the drape is too low-cut at the neck.
