I was just paging through my Pinterest feed when this photo jumped out at me! How cute are these statement collars?!
Flossy! Though I’m typically not a collar-wearing kind of girl, these trendy toppers may make me rethink that policy. I especially love how each of these collars displays a totally different aesthetic and vibe. Pearls and rounded edges would be perfect for a feminine, dolly-inspired look. Chains and studs are a bit more edgy or rocker. Rhinestones and sequins are for a wild child glam girl. The look is high-fashion approved, of course– statement collars have made runway rounds in previous shows and collections from Milly, Miu Miu, and Vuitton, just to name a few. From colored tips, to decorative trim, to all-out crochet, upping your collar game creates a unique focal point for an ensemble and can function as a chic little nod to your personal style.
Embellishments aside, isn’t it crazy that something as simple as the shape of a collar can totally change up the feel of an outfit? Dramatic, pointed collars, for example, appear more masculine than shorter, rounded styles.
There’s a lot to love about this trend! Bonus: Some of the collars featured in the photo above appear to be completely detachable–either heavily bedazzled necklaces, or simply stand-alone collars (aka “dickies”, no?) that could be mixed and matched with any suitable top or dress. Commitment-phobic fashionistas rejoice! It couldn’t be easier to embrace the statement collar without buying a ton of new blouses. Now that I like.
What do you think, ladies? Do you like the statement collar? Would you incorporate any of these into your look? For further collar inspiration, make sure check out the “collar” tag on Pinterest!
