Statement Collars this year were no longer just a uniform part of a garment. 2012 has finally given it a moment to shine, and by shine I mean literally. Embellished, studded, jewelled, patterned, layered, contrasted or cutaway: the final say is that in 2012, the collar becomes a statement. 2012’s statement collars don’t require a shirt or printed pants for definition; they’re an individual trend in the running. They have become an added detail to an outfit, rather than just supporting a classic white shirt. With some styles being something you can sport, and others might be ones you wouldn’t be caught death putting on, check out these different collar styles and who shines their trendy lights on them.
