Ask BB: How to Wear a Collar Necklace

Recently I was given a very beautiful detachable jeweled collar. Are they still in and what are the multiple ways I can wear it? —Maria

Are they ever! Embellished collars are the ultimate accessory this winter and holiday season, whether "built-in" or detachable like yours. There are also dozens of DIY tutorials out there in case you want to make your own (like this one from FabSugar). I recently purchased this jeweled collar at Jewelmint and have been looking for ways to wear it, so I actually created a Pinterest board dedicated to embellished collars. I think the key is to experiment!

Let's look at some ways to wear your jeweled collar. Kate Mara styled her Dannijo collar necklace by pairing it with a long-sleeve dress with a simple scoop neckline. The necklace sits comfortably on the fabric, and adds an element of surprise to her look.
