Three Dots Cowl Neck Top ($52)

I love cowl necks.  I wear them with basic business suits, under belted blazers and with cardigans.  They add a bit of volume, which is nice for those of us who weren’t blessed with cups that runneth over.

I like this short sleeve ballet pink top, and this draped neck top.  If you prefer long sleeves, Ann Taylor has a few on sale.  I also like this casual Michael Stars top with a dramatic cowl neck.

If you would prefer your cowl neck in a dress, Black Halo makes lovely ones in both sleeveless and 3/4 sleeve.  If you are looking for something less expensive, this Three Dots dress is very cute.  I also like this Suzi Chin dress.

Plus size? I like this short sleeve top and this long sleeve one.  As for dresses, this Adrianna Papell frock for daytime and this David Meister dress for cocktail.

    I love the drape of cowl neck tops, but the color/fabric combination on the three dots purple top seems a bit too much for daytime. I would go with the shiny fabric in a more muted color, or a bright purple top in a less shiny fabric. It's great for nighttime, though.

    I love that color of the first top!

    Having been inspired by Scandal's Olivia Pope character, I spent sometime researching this look, I completely agree about the figure type this is best for. Our fully endowed sisters do themselves no favors with this style of top (which I think is technically a draped front as opposed to a real cowl neck which is an overgrown turtleneck).

    I love drape neck and cowl neck tops for the same reason you mentioned – add some oomph to my chest.

The Find: Bright and Striped

For the past few years, the wardrobes of many influencers have tilted toward the beige and boring. ¬†I’m all for a good basic, but staple pieces can only take you so far. ¬†Sometimes, you need to wear something that has a little something extra, and this sale-priced tee certainly does.
