Show Your True “Collars” With These 15 Funky Collar Necklaces
Statement necklaces rarely go out of style but, this season, collar necklaces (which fall right at the base of the neck) have been particularly hot tickets. Though available in a bevy of shapes, the most noticeable trend has been the surge in necklaces with a trompe l’oeil effect, pieces with silhouettes that mimic either notched, Peter Pan ,button-down, or spread shirt collars. Wear them over a plain T-shirt and lightweight blazer to dress up an otherwise casual ensemble, position them atop button-down blouses as if they were part of the original garment’s construction, pair them with a solid jersey or silk dress for added glamour, or even drape them over your bare shoulders and decolletage. Below, you’ll find 15 collar necklaces worth coveting, made with materials ranging from nylon and lace to leather, resin, oxidized brass, iron and zinc, sterling silver, Swarovski crystals, metal or glass beads, and natural stones. Time to collar outside the lines!
