One of my favorite style details this season is the embellished collar, but not just any type of collar. I'm talking about the ones emblazoned with everything from studs to glitter to jewels. It's an unexpected statement that allows you to skip accessories and not look drab.
The intricate beading and touch of glam on this top instantly caught my eye. Finding one of spring's must-have items at T.J.Maxx for a fraction of what I'd pay at a department store was just the icing on the sartorial cake. To really show off the collar, I buttoned it all the way up to the neckline and paired it with a neutral-toned jacket and denim. I love how such a small detail can define a whole look. Another detail that made me swoon: the blouse's scalloped hem. No way I'm tucking this baby in.
Possibly the best thing about this trend is that you can try it out without buying anything new. On a lazy Saturday afternoon, try making your own with some fabric glue and a handful of studs, rhinestones, or any other embellishments.
