I’m really digging collars right now. No longer reserved for corporate male fashion, the buttoned-up look is taking feminine styles and silhouettes to a whole new level! Basic blouses and dresses are brought to life with contrasting and embellished collars and fashionistas everywhere are buttoning up – all the way up – no Saturday Night Fever butterfly collars this season!
When I saw this basic black sheer sleeveless blouse with a fun animal print collar, I immediately pictured it with my coral skinny jeans. I love the way this look flirts with androgyny for a trendy yet comfortable casual Friday look!
I added an edgy spiked necklace under the collar for a little extra “Rawr!” and a solid pop of metal against the basic black blouse. I love the way it came together and I can’t wait to experiment with more collared looks. Stay tuned for my feature on detachable collars – I’ve got a few styles coming in the mail that I can’t wait to share with you!
