LIKE MOTHER LIKE DAUGHTER

One of the reasons I like these collars so much is that they are so versatile, looking good no matter what your age or style.

You can pretty much wear them with anything and make it your own.

So, ring the changes this summer and swap your favourite necklace for your favourite  shirt collar for the night

Soft but striking and looks fantastic on any neckline

LOVELY COLOUR PALETTES

A lovely way to wear your collar is by customising it with swing tags. I designed these cloud shaped tags to be attached to the zip ends of my girls Vamp dresses. They looked and felt so nice I had to used them else where as well. When the collars were designed it turned out they were the perfect little addition to add a pop of colour or contrast.

So you can have a little fun and customise your collar with some swing tags in any colour you like, there are 8 to choose from. We can add them to the collar for you or you can put them on yourself and change them around when you feel like it. They fit on all the collars so are completely interchangeable…

I’m a default plain dresser. I will almost always pick plain over print and probably grey over anything else. I know, I know, stop before you faint with excitement. But my point is I have to force myself to step out of my comfort zone to try colours and prints. When I do and it works I love it, It’s instant happy for me. So, here I’ve put together some print and colour paletts , all worn with a statement skirt, just to give you an idea of how easily the colours mix and how great they all look. I’ve used a bit of a wow skirt with a bold print ( Dolce and Gabbana BTW , if ahem, any one wants to buy this for me because they love me then please do so !)¬† You’ll see that even though the skirt is a big statement you can still use a second printed accessory without it being too much. They work together beautifully and adding the tags in accent colours to pick up from the skirt only pulls it together even more.

LOVELY COLOUR PALETTES

I’ve used the collar here quite literally like a paint palette to show how all the colours would compliment this look. In other words they all look good.

COOL GREY AND WHITE, SO PRETTY AND TIMELESS

Always very fresh, love the combo. Goes with anything, the lazy dressers go to colours.

BLACK AND WHITE SKETCH PRINT WITH 2 COOL COLOURS

The skirt, full of colour and pattern itself but even something as loud as this works beautifully when put together with a plain top and accessorised with a collar. Feminine but quirky and each one can be different according to how you Tag it.

GREY SQUIGGLE PRINT

Bolder than the sketch print above but the colour is so soft and pretty is works great as a second to the skirt. Grey is such a neutraliser , its the Switzerland of colours. You can pretty much throw anything at it and it will show it off to its best ability.

Its just a matter of pick your favourite colour here as they all work a treat.

ORANGE AND DEEP DARK GREEN

I literately want to eat this combination. I chose this colour to pick out the orange in the skirt. A bold orange with deep dark green tags to calm it down. I actually hate this expression but it is … LUSH.
