Ditch the Dicky

Remember the dicky? If you had the misfortune to own and/or wear one, first of all let me give my condolences. Second of all, why?! Why wouldn't you spring for the entire shirt?!

For those of you who don't know what a dicky is and are giggling to yourselves it is essentially a turtleneck sans sleeves and the lower half of the shirt. Basically, it's for those who need a collar but hate shirts...? I honestly don't understand it and my fashion soul hurts the more I think about it, moving on.


There is an exciting new trend these days that seems to be the dicky's cooler and hotter cousin who is always on trend and knows all the awesome indie bands. This season the detached collar has been gracing many a neckline. What's great about these collars are their ability to transform a simple blouse or top into more of a statement piece. 
Add one of these to a brightly colored cashmere sweater and BAM! brand new top.  They also come in beaded varieties and are more like necklaces so they're easier to wear with different types of tops.

(ermergherd! so cute)

I love this look so much because of it's unconventionality and it even looks cool with a strapless dress. Talk about trendsetting!

The detached collar is an easy and cool way to amp up any outfit this season. Plus they're not a lying to everyone like the dicky. Really dicky, who are you trying to fool?
