cowl neck sweater two ways


Do you love classic styles and looks, but also like to add a little edge to your outfit every now and then? I do! And I’ve got the perfect sweater for you to create both a classic and edgy look. I should have told you about this black cowl neck sweater earlier. It’s so soft and cozy! But it’s almost sold out online.

The first look is perfect for the office. A black cowl neck sweater paired with glen plaid pants is nothing but classic. The red shoes add a little fun to the outfit. The chenille fabric and cowl neck take this from plain sweater to a fabulous piece. You could also pair this sweater with a pencil skirt and tall boots for a classic office look.

The second look is still pretty classic with a camel blazer, but the black on black with velvet and leopard booties gives the outfit just a little edge. If you work in a more creative environment, you could probably wear this one to work too.

A moto jacket with this last outfit would certainly give it a lot more edge. You could also wear  a chenille cowl neck sweater with regular jeans, a moto jacket and chelsea boots for another edgy look. The possibilities for this type of sweater are endless, no matter what your preferred style. If you are not a fan of  the cowl neck you can also create similar looks with a turtleneck or plain crew neck sweater, but I think a cowl neck gives a sweater a little extra something.
