Is it me or are collars now a whole new thing? They have truly been reinvented!

From this, the classic collar on a normal shirt to this:

Who would have ever thought you could buy JUST the COLLAR as it’s own fashion piece?! When I saw this in stores, I was awestruck and laughing at the same time!

Best part about it? If you don’t want to go out and buy one, it becomes the SIMPLEST DIY; just cut off a collar from your shirt!

I have a growing love for collars because they are not only great layering pieces, but they add a really nice flare to clothes to instantly make it more preppy/sophisticated/crisp/cute based on the rest of your outfit.

What I’ve started doing is looking at the lines of a shirt to find more interesting and unique collars. Any collar that’s different than the simple collar will present a different look for your neckline, and hey, that’s worth a shot to try is it not?

A really nice feature to a collar without the shirt is that it can act as an extra layer without having to wear the full shirt!
