As part of the school uniform of the High School I attend, collar shirts are worn on a daily basis, five times a week. One may presume that we’d be sick and tired of these shirts by now.
In fact, collar shirts, as a fashion trend, became part of a few of our wardrobes this year, whether it’s long sleeved or short, plain cut or asymmetrical, chiffon or jean. It’s used for evening as well as day wear, and looks utterly brilliant.
Here’s a new trend to try; how about we take these collar shirts and add a few metallic or pearl accessories? And, hey, Presto! I introduce to you, studded collar shirts.
Last week, I took my very first steps, into a fancy little store called ZARA. I dragged my family to Cape Town for my birthday, and what other place than the Waterfront? Zara recently opened in the Waterfront, and a lot of people talked about it ever since. Well, all I can say is that it topped my expectations. It’s chic, modern, diverse and fashion forward. It’s a huge store, and there’s never not a single soul in that shop. Once you’ve walked into a Zara, you’d understand why. The entire store consists of styles that fit each and every taste: from edgy, dynamic and grungier garments, to softer, feminine and more ethereal ones. When going on your next trip to Cape Town, be sure to give ZARA a visit.
I bought my first studded collar shirt at ZARA. Okay, my first and second one. It’s quite lovely. Studded collar shirts add personality and edge to your outfit. You can add the accessories, or ‘studs’ yourself, which makes this trend a DIY, and a MUST. A cool idea for a studded collar shirt is a light blue sleeveless jean one, with golden sharp geometric studs. This would work better for day time. A chiffon long sleeved collar shirt would work better for night time, varying from silver minimal studs to pearls. It can complement your style, whatever. Just be sure to try this out.
