Cowl is cool: Cowl neck is the Y2K trend that’s worth the hype

A-listers can’t get enough of 2000s fashion — from velour co-ords and claw clips to low-slung jeans — Y2K fashion is everywhere!

The cowl neck is one of the most redeemable throwback styles that has been re-imagined again and again. The cowl neck has given 2000s pop culture some of the most memorable fashion moments — be it Carrie Bradshaw’s Dior newspaper dress with a breezy yoke or Paris Hilton’s chainmail Versace dress which she wore on her 21st birthday. 


The rounded folds of the loosely draped cowl neck accentuate the collarbone and can also add a sense of subtle volume to some silhouettes. 

Here’s how you can style the cowl neck trend:

Sara Ali Khan

Sara Ali Khan’s Retrofête LBD has a subtle cowl resembling a soft, plunging V-neck.The spaghetti straps and halter detailing add effortlessness to the party number and help Sara show off her angular shoulders.

Janhvi and Khushi Kapoor

We love a twinning neckline moment. The Kapoor sisters went for a glitter overdose for a recent birthday party and opted for cowl neck mini dresses. While the cowl on Janhvi’s number is more structural and adds a sense of volume to the deep neckline, Khushi goes for a classic cowl neck.

Tara Sutaria

There’s nothing a good monochrome look can’t fix. Tara’s ivory satin corset dress from House of CB skims her curves and the elegant cowl is a contrast to the structured corsetry boning in the bodice.

Kylie Jenner

As Leo season approaches, consider stepping out of your comfort zone, just like Leo babe Kylie Jenner. The makeup mogul picks a sultry satin number with a soft cowl and relaxed silhouette.

Mira Rajput Kapoor

Mira Rajput’s floral dress has a unique cowl detailing which highlights the sweetheart neckline and also adds a sense of texture to the number.

Suhana Khan

Future Bollywood debutant Suhana Khan is not one for playing it safe. Her cheetah printed dress with a cowl neck is no-nonsense and she pairs the party-ready number with subtly bronzed make-up, for a sun-kissed selfie.

Mouni Roy

The Brahmāstra actress stuns in this wine-coloured dress with a voluminous cowl. The dramatic slit and the backless detailing really help the look come together.
