As the weather gets a bit milder, we can’t help but get excited about all the new-season trends we’ll soon be wearing. And some of them are super easy to start wearing right now, such as the trend for big collars.
XXL, supersize, oversize, whatever you want to call them, big collars are, well, big news for SS21: on blouses, knitwear or even detachable to wear with any outfit you please. Printed, denim, frilly, lacy, leather, contrasting or muted, the big collar trend can easily be integrated into most styles, making it a great addition for any woman’s wardrobe.
An oversize collar adds a lovely romantic quality to an otherwise plain outfit, and an oversized detail instantly adds some wow factor (plus they’re perfect for Zoom meetings and catch-ups when people can only see your top half anyway).
