Buying a whole new wardrobe this season feels a little pointless, given that most social events are off or reduced to much more minor affairs at the very least. But, alas, here we are staring at our wardrobe, willing something new to come out of it.
What we really need in times like these are inexpensive little updates that can instantly transform your existing wardrobe by their mere addition to any outfit. Accessories are your new sartorial best friends and the detachable collar is one such item that you should be making yourself strongly acquainted with.
Detachable collars are a great way to breath new life into old garments – simply pop a detachable collar on top of a (collarless) jumper, blouse or T-shirt and ta da! You have an entirely new look to play around with.
What’s great is that oversized and statement collars are already a big trend this season: while the frilly, lacy and broderie anglaise style collars play into the hyperfeminine trend seen on the catwalks and high street rails alike this year – the more frills, ruffles and cutesy embroidered flowers, the better – other more structured styles or collars in unexpected fabrics such as faux leather can bring a surprising and modern twist to your look.
We’ve found 17 detachable collars on the high street and online that you should consider investing in this season, and they start from just £2.
