Starched and embroidered
Initially a fashion statement for church office holders or members of the monarchy, they were tied tightly at the neck, starched and elaborately laid in waves - so that they acted like an eye-catching frame that set the scene for the face.
Little by little, collars became more discreet and mass-compatible: bobbin lace, ornamented with eyelet embroidery or quite plain and discreet.
Every now and then they are "in". Like in the 70s, when various designers opted for a conservative schoolgirl look for adult women, or in Japan, where real schoolgirls put on the sexiest collars possible: combined with platform shoes, miniskirts and lots of make-up.
So this autumn they are back once again, and Style PASS has spotted them on various brands: In the picture on the left from ASOS, in the middle from the French upmarket brand Maje and on the right as a loose accessory that you can easily combine with your jumpers and thus pimp them - you can get them from about 8 euros.
What Style PASS particularly likes: combine a playful, romantic collar with a sporty sweatshirt, for example from the Style PASS-Shop. Style PASS thinks jeans with a used look or leather-look leggings look great with it!
