You can never go wrong with a great sweater during the fall and winter months, but what do you purchase? The cozy cowl neck or the scoop neck sweater you can pair with your favorite statement necklaces? I say, get them both but when you can get both for the price of one, even better! Enter the Leo & Nicole convertible cowl neck sweater! This ultra soft knit sweater features a removable fold-over cowl neckline with faux buckle detailing, a relaxed fit, and a rounded tunic length hem. This sweater seriously has it all! With the extended length, you can wear it easily with leggings and tall boots, and since the neckline can change so can your style. Here I will be sharing two ways I styled this one sweater so you can see just what a difference a collar makes! For the first look, I decided to wear my hair up. When I wear tops with exaggerated collars I tend to put my hair up as it gets in the way. Since I chose a ponytail, statement earrings were a must. Here I went with my favorite handmade earrings from Berry & Leather. They are so lightweight and finish the look effortlessly. For jeans I am wearing distressed black jeans from Dear John Denim, and buckled ankle booties from XOXO. The booties add height and extend the leg keeping this look long and lean. For look two I kept the same jeans and changed up all of the accessories to show how different this top can look! To complement the lovely red shade of this sweater I decided to go with gold-tone and cognac shades. To remove the cowl neck from the sweater all you have to do is detach it from 2 small clear buttons on the back of the neck. Since I am wearing the sweater as a scoop neck now, I wanted to wear my hair down and add long layering necklaces to balance the look. I decided to add a fun snake belt from Express, faux suede booties from Rampage, and my signature Henri Bendel bag for finishing touches. This style looks great tucked in or untucked as I have demonstrated here. – It is just such a versatile piece! Overall I think this sweater is really great quality and offers a variety of options for styling. Pieces like this one are amazing wardrobe essentials, and being offered in an assortment of colors, there is bound to be one perfect for you!
