Blog: Drowning Equilibriums
How do you build your outfit around it?
I use it as my main statement piece, it can instantly spice up an otherwise plain looking outfit.
How do you make the look your own?
I still went for the preppy/modern vintage look.
How do you balance your outfit to avoid making it look over-the-top?
If the collar is simple or solid colored, I wear bold/statement pieces of clothing with it, like in this case a striped top and skirt. If the collar is printed or outrageous, then it's best to wear it with plain clothes so that only the collar would standout.
Can you give tips on how to wear this trend?
It's great for layering and adding instant quirk to any outfit—you can wear it with almost anything! You can wear it as a necklace/choker (detached from the top/dress) or as part of the top or dress itself for that instant lift. Depending on your mood, you can wear detachable collars to look preppy, androgynous or girly. I usually wear them with plain round neck dresses or tops.
How would you wear it during the day, at night, to a party, to work?
Day: Depending on the print of the collar, I would wear it with a round neck shirt or sweater, a short skirt swing skirt, and colored flats.
Party: A round neck velvet or sequined mini dress plus the collar as a statement piece.
Work: A round neck plain top with the collar, plus a long cardigan, trousers, and pumps.
