How to Wear The Detachable Collar

I make and sell a lot of these detachable collars at Cut and Sewn.

Here is one all wrapped up and ready to ship to a lucky buyer in California.

At my shows I hear a lot of people admiring them but asking  “How do I wear this?”

Here is my advise:

  • Don’t over think it, just throw it on, treat it like any necklace or scarf.
  •   These look great over a collarless shirt, with a cardigan, over a dress, or with a tank top.
  • Consider adding  a couple of necklaces to dangle out from underneath.
  • Don’t get bogged down thinking that it needs to match what your wearing.

The Man Repeller is an avid wearer of the detachable collar, here a just a few of her many takes on the situation:

And Tavi over at Rookie is huge fan of collecting and wearing collars of all shapes and sizes, they recently did an article on making your own.

Is this a detachable collar at Marni? I can’t tell, but then that’s kinda the point right?
