I have seen this trend everywhere and I absolutely love it! These are a great item to have and can transform the look of any outfit effortlessly. Here are a few of my favourites:
Pictured above - 1. Gold Louis Vuitton Peter Pan Collar Necklace, 2. Studded Gold Louis Vuitton Resort 2012 Collar Necklace, 3. Dannijo ARAM Necklace - $158,  4. Delfina Delettrez Button Down Necklace - $1715, 5. Black Studded Detachable Collar - $18, 6. Black Pu Collar - $25

Miu Miu came out with detachable collars in their Spring 2010 collection with prints such as birds and cats. I was and still am a huge fan of that particular collection, but since then, the variety and styles of the detachable collar are endless! I have seen various D.I.Y projects on blogs and youtube inspired by the Miu Miu collar using iron on transfers.

Dime Piece Designs have created these lovely black and white cross collars, which I think are amazing also. Definitely something I may purchase or re-create with my own twist.

I bought some studs from ebay a while ago and decided to make my own D.I.Y studded collar. Cutting off the collar from a men's dress shirt, I pierced the studs through the material and closed off the spikes at the back to secure them in place - not difficult at all! The best place to find dress shirts are at op-shops/ charity stores in the mens section. I find that they are better quality and keep their shape a lot better then the womens shirts. The total cost for this D.I.Y is under $10!

What are your opinions on this trend?
