I’ve been looking for detachable vintage collars ever since I laid my eyes on the adorable 60s looking one that was paired with Zara’s “Miu Miu” dress.

When I was a kid, my mom always used to style my school uniform with lace and crochet collars. She had at least half a dozen. She would attach them to my sweaters and cardigans that I usually wore with a crisp white dress shirt and a navy blue pleated knee-length skirt. How very Blair Waldorf of my mom.

This Urban Outfitters lace collar hits the spot just right. It’s slightly more oversized than the ones I wore in my childhood. I love the vintage feel and how it can transform a very ordinary garment into a special one. My mom would approve.

$30 CAD at Urban Outfitters.
