Up here in Massachusetts it’s still cold and blustery with a hint of snow, so my Wallpaper Cowl is getting a lot of usage. But what are my non-New Englanders to do? I invited Allyson and awesome Holla Knitters Elsha and Jamie to style it up their way with the help of Polyvore. Four different places, four different looks–which one inspires you?
I say pair your Wallpaper Cowl with a bright coat and snuggly boots. I love my Uggs despite the backlash and rock a pair like this that look more like “real boots.” And a relaxed ombre sweater still looks good with your cowl when the coat comes off indoors!
Jamie writes “I really wanted the cowl to be the showpiece it deserves to be so I kept things simple. Jeans, tank, a leather jacket to play up the cowl’s lining color, and a fun pair of boots. Oh, and a bag big enough to toss some knitting in.”
Our print maven Allyson says “It’s getting warmer! But you still need to bundle up with fun accessories like Emma’s Wallpaper Cowl, and a slouchy knit hat. And, as usual, I’ve embraced my love of mixing prints and worked both stripes and polka dots into this every day look!”
Elsha gives us options! “I love versatility in my outfits, and the Wallpaper Cowl is so easy to style! Sometimes I want to look more rough-and-tumble – give me boots and let my kick-ass attitude shine! Other times I love the soft and feminine, with stilettos and sleek lines. This cowl works great both ways!”
A couple months ago I showed off some amazing Holla Knits FOs, and today I’ve got more!
