Collars are having a HUGE moment right now and have been floating around for quite some time. I for one LOVE a good collar and find myself adding collars left, right and centre to each and every look.
It's the missing detail that can really elevate and finish off a look. Whether the collar is oversized, adorned in lace, scalloped, daggered or Peter-Pan(ed) I am such a sucker for a good ole fashioned collar.
The whole Berries & Cream lark that has stemmed from TikTok has only worked to elevate my love for a collar and I'm loving how Berries & Cream has become some what of an adjective surrounding outfits and styling.
I thought I'd share with you some of my fave collared looks of late whilst also sharing a lil wish list of some of my fave collars and collared pieces on the market right now.
This first dress is by Sister Jane, a brand I have loved for just about as long as they have been going (10 whole years!) This piece is such a classic LBD, however the addition of a collar and some sparkly buttons makes it all the more FABULOUS! Whether it's an evening dress you're after, a Christmas party dress, something for work or even a dress to pair with trainers, I think this dress has it all!
Over at Saturday By Megan Ellaby we have soooo many awesome collared pieces. It felt only natural to bring my love for collars into my own collections, kicking things off with The Margot, our classic collared polo top with a subtle dagger collar featuring our iconic clam embroidery. And more recently with our Suki rugby shirts, Strawberry Queen dress, Willow polo top and Wendy, that I'm wearing in this look here. All of our collared pieces, similarly to the dress above are such versatile little beauties that they work with a whole host of styling pieces. Whether it's your favourite jeans, your trusty A-Line mini skirt, a statement suit or a slip dress layered beautifully over the top, each of our collared pieces are failsafes for your wardrobe.
Another collared dress beauty in the form of this checked piece by GHOSPELL. This style of dress as always and will always remain a failsafe for me, a go-to for all occasions particularly when paired with a chunky shoe such as my trusty Louis Vuitton derby's. The cut is so flattering and the OTT collar paired with the OTT sleeves creates such a statement! With two such statement elements to the dress I really love the use of such a subtle colour and print that works to make the dress oh so wearable indeed.
Finally, and before we head on down to wishist town, we have a top by one of my fave indie brands Sabina Sommer. I purchased three pieces from Sabina Sommer when I found out I was pregnant as I knew they would work with my expanding tummy, whilst also being great for nursing and for everything in between. They didn't let me down.
Since then I've become Insta pals with Sabina and she kindly sends over the odd piece each season and this is the latest top I picked out. SERIOUS berries & cream vibes with this insane collar hey! I'm having such a love affair with the colour green right now, but saying that, I feel I've been in this affair with green for the last couple of years...
What I love so much about these pieces is how they all wrap around the body so they're great for all shapes and sizes, ever so flattering, whilst also being perfect for layering too. They can be dressed up and down and they're such fabulous pieces to reach for on days when I'm not so sure what to wear but know I want to feel fab!
