Gotcha by the Collar

Collars are like the research assistants of the garment world – often overlooked, and rarely given the credit they deserve. However, Lydia of the blog Style is Style used her savvy skills to create an ensemble that spotlights a can’t-miss-it collar, paying homage to this under-appreciated accent.

The fashionable foundation of Lydia’s look is formed by solid style staples: black patent Mary Janes, obsidian tights, a gold cardi, and bourbon-brown belt. These fab four stylishly support the true star of the show – the cutely collared and flowery frock! Although florals are flourishing in fashion right now, this gorgeous gal stands out from the posy-printed pack thanks to the bow-bedecked, wide white collar on her darling dress.

Check out The Sharon Jumper, About the Author Dress, Calpurnia Blouse, or Cute Clipper Dress, and you’re sure to find a cute collar that’ll make ’em holler!

About Natalie

As the owner of three small, fluffy dogs, Natalie has accepted the fact that dog hair being everywhere and on everything is just part of her lifestyle now. She cannot stop decorating (and redecorating) her home, and lives by Robert Venturi's words, "Less is a bore." Fresh flowers, floral print dresses, and a good gin and tonic are just a few of her favorite things.

    She’s adorable! And the collar totally adds to the look. I’ve been debating the Sharon Jumper, but now I have a great idea for how to wear it!

    ModCloth, is anyone listening? I love your website and I would like to be able to wear your clothes, but at 5’7, all of your dresses are magically transformed into shirts. What about us taller ladies, Modcloth?

    I love the way collars like the one this lady is wearing automatically give garments a vintage-y feel!

    I was checking out the items suggested & actually surprised to see sizes bigger than just a Large. PLEASE stock more bigger sizes in more items! Even an XL would be great. Us girls even with a bit of curve want to look fabulous! 🙂
