Those of us who live in New England are extremely thankful to the designers of labels like (above) Brian Reyes, Cynthia Rowley, Giambattista Valli, and Givenchy for incorporating highly structured collars into their lines this fall, which provide some protection for our necks against freezing winds. No more ugly neck warmers! No more frozen necks!
This look is very trendy right now and definitely makes a strong statement. The structured trend is all about volume and creative construction.
One great way to rock this look is with your winter coat. Obviously it will look amazing and chic while giving you the added bonus of extra warmth! You can throw a scarf on underneath for extra warmth, or just let the oversized neckline work its magic. Here are some coats with high structured collars (click to see more):
Tops with high collars look very chic and sophisticated, especially underneath a blazer or winter coat. You can tuck em into a pair of pants for a more tailored look, or let them hang loose over your favorite skinny jeans tucked into a pair of knee high boots. Avoid any large necklaces or earrings and accessorize with some great bangles, or a big cocktail ring.
