The oversized collar has been a rising trend since last fall, appearing on the runway for Emilio Pucci, Mui Mui and Louis Vuitton. While D was guest posting for PMT, she wrote: “Necklaces shaped like fake collars are very trendy these days. Not so sure about that one… I’ll ask Emily to do some research and write a post about it.” This was in late August. Yesterday, D sends me an email titled “...even Willow's doing it.” OK, OK! I got the hint. Here’s your Collar Post, my dear!
A detachable collar updates an outfit without any major expense. (Honestly…WTF will show you that it’s also an easy DIY.) Don’t be shy to experiment with color, print or embellishments! The Peter Pan collar is the sweetest, girliest choice. A hot trend back in the 1960′s, a rounded collar is a fun way to add pizzazz to a simple t-shirt, or make an evening dress more playful. For a crisp, masculine look, follow the footsteps of Cupcakes & Cashmere and opt for a pointed Tuxedo collar.
You will find some awesome (and affordable!) choices at H&M, Zara and Forever 21.
Tell me: Will you be rocking this trend?
