Style Glossary: Cascade Collar

As the Vanilla Sandies Top shows, double the collar can mean double the charm!

If there was ever a collar style to fall for, it’s the cascade collar. This fluttery collar style is pretty easy to pinpoint, but if you must know, a cascade collar is a circular-cut ruffle that is attached to the neckline of a garment. The ruffle can extend as far down as the waistline in a straight or diagonal line, or, as in the case of the sweetly spun Vanilla Sandies Top above, team up with another ruffle to add even more visual interest!

What’s your favorite type of collar?

    I also love a Peter Pan collar, but I would have to say that my favourite collar is the button up shirt type. It’s just so versatile! Open, done up, with a tie…. oh so many possibilities!

    Sailor collars are my favorite. I would wear them on every single thing if I could get away with it!

    Have to agree with the peter pan collar, so cute!
    I wonder if the cascading collar will look as nice on us girls with bigger chests, or if the frills will just look weird?
