Your options are wide open with the “fear of commitment” cowl! Button it right up close to your neck for maximum warmth. Too warm? Move the button so the cowl rests on your shoulders or somewhere in between. Super easy and fast, the trick is in connecting two buttons with elastic so you don’t have to commit to a button hole!
