The loosely draped fabric around the collarbone that eludes a casual yet chic vibe is what defines the cowl neckline. This style enjoyed its peak popularity around the 1930s and experienced a resurgence in the late 2010s as part of renewed interest in 1990s fashion. Vivienne Westwood has been cited as an important driver of the trend and this season, we have been sporting celebrities finding their lost interest back in the cowl neck fashion. One reason to love the cowl neck is its effortless charm, casualness and how it compliments every face type. Here are 5 celeb-inspired ways to sport the trend.
