Cowls are a popular accessory for cool temperatures because of their versatility. Depending on the length of your cowl, there are tons of different ways you can style your accessory. Here is Lindsey modeling 6 suggestions using our Thermal Knit Cowl. For reference, this cowl has a circumference of 50 inches (127 cm), so cowls of a similar length will work well with these styles.

Long cowl styles
Cowls with a long circumference can be worn simply draped around the neck for a bit of warmth. Wear it over your head for a drapey hood. These longer styles are great for when you just want a lighter accessory, such as in a chilly office or on a cool spring day.

Medium cowl styles
These styles will keep you toasty. For the first example, simply drape the cowl around your neck, then wrap it around a second time. This long and short style adds visual interest. For the second look, fold the cowl in half and pull one end through the other like a scarf. This will double the amount of fabric around your neck, keeping you toasty.

Short cowl styles
For the most warmth, double the cowl around your neck. Fight off the wind by pulling one section over your head to form a cozy hood.

These are just six possible ways to wear your cowl; the possibilities are endless! What’s your favorite way to style a cowl?
