This season we recommend you give your neckline an up close and personal experience with the statement making contrasting collar trend. There’s no way to deny that collars have made a huge comeback this year, we first highlighted the style with our collar necklace trend reports and now it seems like contrasting collars in bold hues are the next big thing. Whether it’s a contrasting collared button down blouse for the office or a cute contrasting collared shirt dresses for a summer night out, this trend is sure to leave you looking stylish. Bringing a pop of color into the mix with a contrasting collar can take a simple outfit and make it unique and fashion forward.

The celebs rocking this look include some of our favorite Chicistas like Kate Mara, Alexa Chung, Emma Watson, Carey Mulligan, Nicole Richie and Shala Monroque.  The designers favoring the chic contrasting collar looks this season include Valentino, Miu Miu, and Mulberry who all showed chic button down contrasting collar blouses on the Resort 2014 runways. One of the things we love most about this look is the endless color combos like electric blue and black, mint and tangerine, white and emerald and oh-so chic black and charcoal.  We highly recommend you try this trend because it’s one you can rock at the office, on the town and in the class room (for all you gals who’ll be returning to campus this August).

When rocking a contrasting collared blouse or dress it’s important to be able to see it. So when it comes to styling your hair consider rocking a messy undone bun or sleek pony tail, both of these styles will prevent your hair from blocking the view of your chic contrasting collar top.

This trend can lend its self to a few different styles depending on how you accessorize it.
