Hot under the Collar

Yes the devil is always in the details and this time it’s specifically the collar. They clearly are marmite judging by the reaction to my Instagram Stories the other week! But they were big last season and are set to carry on this spring/summer so here is my edit of the best out there. If you don’t want to go big, then there’s also several ideas for more subtle options. They’re such an easy way to update your wardrobe for the season ahead.

The great thing about a statement collar is that it will draw the eyeline to it, thereby detracting attention from other parts of the body. So if you are pear shape and want to draw attention away from your hips or an apple and find your middle is a problem or perhaps you’re a more rectangular shape and need to add some dimension to your frame, then a collar is just the ticket.

Not sure how to wear them, then here are a couple of ideas to give you some inspiration for different looks.
