Cowl necks aren’t just for your favorite sweater! The floppy design can be lowered for a sexy look – especially if it’s attached to a mini dress! See how stars have styled the look!
When you think of a cowl neckline, your mind might immediately go straight to a comfy sweater with what looks like a built-in infinity scarf for a neckline. While that’s certainly not wrong – and a fair connection considering it’s currently January – there’s a sexy take on the design that we’ve been seeing everywhere lately. If you drop the floppy neckline down a few inches, it turns into a neckline that accentuates cleavage quite nicely, and everyone from Kim Kardashian to Lily Collins appears to be a fan. Throw in a mini dress silhouette and you’ve got yourself a fierce ensemble that will turn heads anywhere you go!
Kim rocked the look most recently when she attended the Versace pre-Fall 2019 show with husband Kanye West in New York on Dec. 2, 2018. The 38-year-old reality star looked incredible in a shimmery silver mini dress by the designer. Her particular neckline was dropped significantly, showing about as much cleavage as a plunging v-neck would. Kim rounded out her look with a pair of see-through Yeezy pumps, obvi.
Versace seems to really adore the neckline, because it’s not the only time we’ve seen it on one of the label’s designs lately. Emily Ratajkowski sported a black cowl neck midi-dress with a thigh-high slit on the runway for the luxury brand’s Spring Summer 2019 show during Milan Fashion Week on Sept. 21, 2018. That’s definitely nothing to scoff at – in fact, that’s a pretty good sign that we’ll be seeing deep cowl neck dresses in the coming seasons.
