The past few seasons have brought a variety of changes to the traditional collar. From removable collars to jeweled collars, these once-humdrum elements have taken on a life of their own as an accessory of sorts. Trendiest this season? The contrasting collar.
The concept is basic: a contrasting collar pops against the color or print of the rest of the garment. White shirts with black collars are pretty common these days, but now a variety of unique colors and styles are available.
Personally, I’m coveting the Derek Lam dress above and the first Nasty Gal blouse shown below. As shown in those two examples, a contrasting collar paired with a print makes such a bold statement – here at CF, we cannot get enough of this look!
