Make The Cowl Neck Work For YouWritten by simplymaternity on Thursday 13th of October 2011
This Autumn the Cowl neck seems to be everywhere, in dresses, jumpers, blouses and even in some t-shirts the baggy full neck and long flowing top is a great autumn look for any woman, but when you are pregnant you can really use this look to create something extra special.
Wearing Maternity Jumpers when you are pregnant can be difficult. As your temperature changes so quickly, it can be challenging to find a jumper that is going to keep you warm when you are cold but then isn’t going to overheat you when your temperature rises. But a cowl neck design can help to combat this problem. The low cut and baggy neck opening mean that you can adjust the neck to give you just the right amount of coverage when you need it and can then fully open the neck when you need to breath.
But the cowl neck is not just practical, it also looks gorgeous too and does wonders for the pregnant form. The wide opening at the top exposes more of your skin than a standard high neck jumper and therefore draws attention up your body to your neck area, away from your growing belly.
The fitted nature of the body of the cowl neck design also gives definition to your waist and back and stops you being swamped in your clothes which can make you look and feel bigger than you are.
When choosing your cowl neck designs opt for tops or dresses made of a heavier material that is also going to let your body breath. Again, Jersey or a wool mix will provide a flexible, breathable style that is also going to keep its shape and continue to look great however often you wash it.
With such a sophisticated style around your neck, accessories can be kept to a minimum for day wear, but you can really glam up this style for evening wear with some shiny jewellery and high shoes. Consider wearing your hair up and off your shoulders during your pregnancy to accentuate your slim neckline and to bring more emphasis up your body onto your neck and shoulders giving you a glamorous look for any special occasion.
For day wear we love this 2 in 1 Maternity Top. This top cleverly uses the very popular layering style to provide interest to this top without you having to actually wear two layers and over heat.
The deep plunging neck provides style and definition while the fake underlayer makes this overall look casual enough to wear to any daytime event. Complete the look with a great pair of maternity jeans or combat trousers and you have the perfect casual outfit that is going to keep you comfortable but looking fabulous.
