Collars have been trending for the last few seasons and they're set to be huge in autumn/winter 2012 whether they're embellished, detached or in contrasting colours. We picked a couple of looks and enjoy!
Last summer, peter pan collars were big and since then, the trend has continued on with designers offering their spin on it. The great thing about collars is, it makes everyone look put together and with funky textures and colors, they're also wearable outside the office.
the trio - leather jacket + sweather + collars
Want to make it simple? Choose unusual collars that make your button-ups anything but ordinary. These intriguing accents are not only eye-catching, they're also an easy way to add visual intrigue to a relatively minimalist look

For a crisp look, choose the traditional pointed collar. Experiment with color and print.
For a sweeter result, go for a peter pan collar, which means a rounded collar rather than a pointed one. It's girlier, but it's also a fun way to add a little flirtiness to severe dresses, or make a sheer dress a bit playful.
Put on an embellished necklace with a fuzzy sweater for a layered look.
Try a collared shirt with embellishment, and tuck it into a pair of sexy leather leggings, or go a bit more proper with a full skirt. Regardless of what you choose on the bottom, people will be drawn to your neckline, so make sure your hair and makeup are spot on.
Add an embellished collar necklace to your all-black ensemble to add sass to monochrome separates.
