I got my first collar from Romwe through a deep discount, I only pay about $6 (or is it $4?? I forgot) after the discount deduction ;) - It's a wide scalloped collar add-on, and it was love at first sight ^__^
I love collars because I think they can accentuate your blouses nicely, and they can double your wardrobe because they can re-new old clothes and make it look like it's another clothes! Take example of these outfits below..
This top is actually just a casual common t-shirt but when I put on a collar it become another blouse! The collar has turned this ordinary black tee into a cute scalloped collared black top! I got many compliments when I wore this the other day, especially on the blouse ;p

Another way to wear the collar is to wear it with a dress, it will give your dress a new look too! I experimented with different shapes such as round neck blouse, v-neck cardigans, boatneck top, etc.. And because this is a wide-type collar so I can also wear it with a tank top and it would cover the strap on the shoulder and made the tanktop looked like a sleeveless blouse instead ;p
Below I wear it with a slightly v-neck dress, the length of the collar falls near the v-neck opening so it doesn't really show that the collar is actually an add-on. I used my long hair to camouflage the gap, LOL..

Here is another way to wear it. I wore a polkadot tank top and then put on a jacket and added the collar on top of it. With no collar this outfit would look plain. What do you think? There are basically many ways to wear a collar, and it's fun to try mixing and matching it ;)

I am now looking for more collars because I think it could be a staple in anyone's wardrobe due to their versatility. Now that I have a wide collar I am currently hunting for a more smaller collar, I'm also looking for a v-shaped collar. It's still hard to find cute affordable collars here because I think the trend hasn't come fully loaded on this country yet, so there are still limited options out there. So for now maybe I'd browse Romwe and start building my wishlist instead ;p
How about you? Do you love collars too? Where do you get your collars?
