Inspiration: Getting Collared

I’m not breaking any ground by sharing the collar trend. It’s been creeping around since early Spring and has now become an all out frenzy. I was tempted to buy a couple I liked in H&M and ZARA last week but couldn’t quite commit. Now I’m regretting that decision a little bit.

I love how you can take this trend and make it your own. There are sweet options – like a lace or pearl peter pan collar –  and more edgy looks – pointed collars with in leather or with gold studs. And there isn’t a ton of commitment. You can take any shirt, add a collar and voila – a new look. I, for one, love the look peaking out of a crew neck sweater.

Here’s a little inspiration and some of my favorites.

Clearly, I’m a fan of the sparkly look. Here’s some options if you’re looking to add a fun collar to your jewelry collection. Also, there are TONS of DIY tutorials out there if you’re crafty! Check out I Spy DIY  and Stripes & Sequins for a couple options. Oh and Etsy is a great place to look for great options!

    I’m on the fence with this trend. I think I might check out H&M to see if I can snag a cheap one and test it out…
