From studs to rhinestones, embellished collars are everywhere. Today, Fashion Reporter Allison McNamara is teaching us how to add a little glitz to a button-up blouse via this clever DIY. In just a few minutes, you too can have some extra sparkle on your collar.
Rife with leather, detachable collars, and camo prints, Karl Lagerfeld's second Karl collection launched on Net-a-Porter yesterday. Like his first lower-priced wares, these deliver the same quintessentially Lagerfeld feel — sophisticated and luxe, albeit with Karl's irreverent twist (like the designer's signature gloves to finish every ensemble). And, just like his last collection, you can nab them for about $45 to $1,005 (save for a few exclusive confections that are priced between $1,000 to $7,000). With a lineup of leather pants, vests, jackets, skirts, and even a slick leather dress, plus covetable add-ons like embellished collars and printed knits, it's hard to choose favourites, but we've narrowed it down to seven pieces to shop right now — the only thing missing? Maybe a Choupette-printed t-shirt.
We love a sparkly collar, most recently seen on the Spring runways including Oroton and Philosophy di Alberta Ferretti, and on celebs like Hailee Steinfeld and Diane Kruger, so we decided to re-create this look. It's an easy way to update a top you already own, and it's an affordable way to try out the trend. All you need is a cotton top with a collar, sequin trim (have fun with colour!), a good quality fabric glue, pins, and scissors — so simple, right? Make sure you let your top dry overnight once you're done, and remember to hand wash it gently so that the sequin trim doesn't come off.
Resort came and went — and left a landslide of trends in its wake. What may have once been a blip on the fashion landscape is now a full-on season in its own right, bringing forth a crop of bold trends to catalogue for the coming year. To make it easy, we're breaking it down inside with a look at Resort's most notable wares. Designers like Prabal Gurung recrafted the peplum for another season, while others, like Proenza Schouler made room for leather in their line-up. The amazing thing about Resort is that just about anything goes — but we've narrowed it down to the top 13 trends. Step inside for everything you need to know.
