Detachable collars

The detachable collar trend is one of my favourites. It has a classic look but also adds charm and character to an outfit. It's quite versatile and can range from dorky to elegant.

They've appeared in some great runway collections:

It's also been quite popular with celebrities, Alexa Chung being one of the most prominent wearers. But one of my favourite looks with the trend has to be this look from Hailee Steinfeld:

I've seen some great DIY collar ideas but I've never done any of them myself because I have zero talent when it comes to crafts. If you're looking for ideas, a quick google search will give you tons of results. So what are your thoughts on this trend?

  2. I like some collars but not others... I think I tend to prefer the ones that are made of pearls/jewels that look more like necklaces rather than the straight up collars.

  7. That Miu Miu collar was kind of the start of it all for me. I remember seeing a similar one on Tavi back in the day when I first discovered blogging and I just remembered being absolutely stunned that collars could exist out of shirts. XD

  14. I've been obsessed with peter pan collars for years. I'm a sucker for anything with a peter pan collar.
    Of course my favorite collar is the Mui Mui cat one... swoon.
