OutsaPop Trashion introduced us to bling collars sold by Eleven Project,
priced in the region of $250 +, but suggests a DIY version;

Wear The Canvas gives us another comprehensive DIY detachable collar tutorial;

And lastly, Geneva at A Pair & a Spare made her own tribal print version, by simply using an unwanted collar from a thrift dress refashion

What are your thoughts on the detachable collar? Yay, or nay?

Fabulous idea with the collars :-)

Cut the cuffs from the long sleeved shirts the
same way ( intact ) and embellish,so easy
and every part of the shirt is used.
The cuff already has it's own fastener,anything can be added,
lace ~ buttons ~ fringing ~ beads~
Lots of fun things..forgot to mention, to be worn as a bracelet. :-)

Nothing on the shirt is wasted,and you will have an original piece to wear. :-)

reminds me of when I was a kid and my dresses had detachable lace collars... if only for that I am not a big fan but I have seen some great looks: Jennifer Aniston has definitely rocked a detached collar or two.
