Adding something unique to a wardrobe can be a difficult step.
Most people find that their closets contain very similar styles, but in varying colors and patterns, or very similar colors and patterns, but on different articles of clothing. We all have particular trends and habits within our comfort zone, so even if you like something new and different on someone else, it may be hard to take the plunge and add that piece to your own collection.
One thing that helps me to branch out from my norm is to test out or imagine the article I’m considering with various pieces that I already have. Sometimes I’ll find that one little accessory can change the whole look of an outfit I wear a lot, or that it encourages me to mix in things that I already own, but don’t often wear.
To imagine my scalloped collar as an element of my wardrobe, I added it, like a cherry on top, to three different looks created from my closet. I found that it works very nicely with any top that has a higher neckline, but it could also be worn with the right lower neckline, if it were treated as a statement necklace instead of a collar! Which look is your favourite?
Look 2 | You may remember this Alice in Wonderland outfit! It’s so simple – just a dress, some flats, and the collar!
Look 3 | Can you say day off? This is an ideal way to be comfortable and ready for anything, while still keeping things cute!
How would you wear the scalloped collar?
