The fashion industry has witnessed a number of 90’s trends making a comeback. From polka dot prints to satin dresses, corduroy jackets and more, fashion enthusiasts and Instagram influencers are giving yesteryear’s style a shot. One such style that has found its way back is the cowl neckline trend.
Cowl necklines were widely popular around the 1930s. The cowl neck creates waves of folds below the collar creating a visual cosiness in your outfit. It can make even a very simple A-line dress look luxe and elegant. Though it resembles a draped scarf, complete with its soft folds and a layered appearance, this loose and floppy neckline can make a statement in its own way. This summer, grab your outfits featuring a cowl neckline and flaunt your collar bones. Take inspiration from these Bollywood divas on how to ace the style.
Tara Sutaria is a vision in her ivory corset dress. The satin silk knee-length dress came with a cowl neckline. The actress styled the look elegantly with classy accessories with transparent pointed-toe pumps and sparkly silver earrings and rings.
Janhvi Kapoor’s retro 70’s disco vibes was definitely a head-turner. She teamed her bright pink bell-bottom pants with a shimmery silver top with cowl neck line. The backless strappy metallic mesh top took the centre stage for all the right reasons. Janhvi kept the look minimal with delicate silver hoops and stacked enamel rings and completed her style with a sleek ponytail.
