A small way to make a big statement. Whether embellished with beads or pearls, adorned with lace or diamantés, in all shapes and sizes collars add sophistication and are totally glam.

I picked up this polka dotted maroon dress from Cotton On for only, get this . . .R90! Adding an embellished collar-shaped necklace underneath the dress's existing collar completed the outfit and no other jewellery was necessary.

Collar Clips

A huge smile spread across my face as my eyes caught a glimpse of the delicate silver collar clips sprawled across Forever New’s display table. I thought of all my dreary button down work shirts that were in dire need of a revamp and quickly scrounged together R150. My collar clip, as seen below, was a great buy. The classic piece will stay in my jewellery box for years to come.
