Pop It, Lock It, Polka Dot It

“I love a good collar,” I exclaimed. My coworker responded, “Wow, I can’t wait to see you when you’re old.”

Well, she may be on to something. I definitely go for a more matronly look sometimes, and I’m not sure why. Maybe it’s because I love feminine details – ruffles, bows, girly prints…

There is something so great about a collar. You can pop it, lock it, polka dot it. Sorry, I just had to. But, it brings sophistication to most any look. Nowadays you can even buy a removable collar to put on any shirt you own. You can pop it for a preppy look. You can use it as a placeholder for a scarf or necklace, and you can fold it over any sweater for added texture and pattern.

Below I’ve tagged some of my favorite collared blouses and removable collars to add to your next outfit.

White Layering Blouse | Collared Stripe Dress | Plaid Blouse | Chambray

The first blouse can be layered with any sweater to get that preppy back-to-school look. You can also layer a sweater over the striped dress. A flannel is always a good staple to have in your wardrobe, and once again can be layered or worn front tucked with jeans and booties. Lastly, a chambray is a must and the bell sleeves make this blouse more unique.

Enjoy!
