Collar Tips and Tricks

1. ebay    2. H&M    3. River Island    4. ebay 


I thought I'd do a bit of a fashion-inspired post today for a change, seeing as I tend to just concentrate on beauty and the occasional lifestyle post. Collar detailing is something that I've really got in to over the past few weeks, and it seems to be absolutely everywhere. It seems to be extremely popular on shirts and blouses at the minute in just about every store, so I decided to see how I could jazz up an old Levis shirt I got last year. I think it is actually a man's shirt but I love it! It's really oversized and comfy, and I really love the blue colour of it.

I bought some studs a few weeks ago and was very tempted to stud the collar, but I didn't really want to do anything that was too permanent in case I decided I didn't like it. Instead I decided to have a rummage round and see if I had anything that I could keep changing and swapping. As well as collar tips and detail, big statement necklaces are massive at the minute too, so what better excuse to have a play around with some different looks?!

The H&M necklace is something that I've started to wear a lot because it's so simple and goes with anything. The River Island necklace is a few years old and I actually forgot I had it, but I think it looks quite expensive and very vintage. Both of the collar tips are from good old ebay, which I actually don't have links for at the minute I'm afraid. I definitely know that if you type them in there are millions of choices, and I think mine were around £1.50 with free delivery from China. You have to wait a while for them to arrive, but for that price I don't think anyone can complain. There are loads of different things you can use to brighten up a plain collar, I think I'll definitely be investing in some more.

How do you jazz up your shirt collars?
