A pert collar is one of Fall's sharpest trends, and we're digging the look on style-savvy celebs. It adds a ladylike finish to a look, be it Rachel Bilson's floral collar on her Preen dress, or Abbie Cornish's sexy but proper Louis Vuitton frock. Here are the key tips on the trend:
For a sweeter result, go for a peter pan collar, which means a rounded collar rather than a pointed one. It's girlier, but it's also a fun way to add a little flirtiness to severe dresses, or make a sheer dress a bit playful.
For a crisp look, choose the traditional pointed collar. Experiment with color and print: to get Rachel Bilson's look, try a floral blouse under your basic black crewneck sweater and see how it totally updates it.
As these stars show, this look works great for evening. Try a collared shirt with embellishment, and tuck it into a pair of sexy leather leggings, or go a bit more proper with a full skirt. Regardless of what you choose on the bottom, people will be drawn to your neckline, so make sure your hair and makeup are spot on.
