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.

Here's another example of how to wear a collar necklace with a dress, as seen on Demi Lovato. I like how the necklace completely covers the dress' neckline, making it look like one cohesive garment.

Jeweled collars look amazing paired with separates, too, like this lace blouse and satin skirt outfit seen on Holland Roden.

Embellished collars can also be used to dress up a casual look, like Amy Poehler's t-shirt, skinny pants and heels. Easy and stylish!

Are you a fan of jeweled collars? How are you wearing yours?
Love the way Demi wore it. I personally like to wear them with collared button-ups.
