Okay so designers are getting in on this with collar-necklaces. A great way to liven up a jewel neckline, in place of a necktie on a tailored shirt, or otherwise update something in your closet. Collars as separate pieces are a new concept to us, but that is what they used to be–separate pieces worn with shirts and dresses. Check this earlier blog post of mine on collars I’ve designed. These are a bit more than necklaces, and hence, have even more ability to transform that basic tee or plain dress into something else–from steampunk to victoriana to totally modern, you make your own look.
The best part, these are scarf-like projects. Small yarn quantities, quick to knit, easy to wear, and best part, fun to knit! Great way to try things out without committing to a huge project. Then, think of all the different ways you can use them to make an ordinary outfit extraordinary!
