Holy Cowl!



Did you know…….

  • Some fashion historians believe the cowl neckline was inspired by the draped garments of ancient Greece.

  • Others say that its loose, rounded folds are supposed to resemble those of a monk’s cowl.

  • And not that the monks much cared, but the unstructured, floppy silhouette is especially flattering to small breasted figures since the extra fabric adds volume to the bust area. 


Holy Cowl!  That’s probably more than you wanted to know.  But don’t you just LOVE the scooped look of the cowl neckline? Especially on a soft, slouchy, comfy, oversized, pull-down-over-your knees, Sunday morning coffee-drinking, catching up with your best friend for hours talking about nothing and everything kind of a sweater.
