Trend Watch: The Contrast Collar


One of my favorite trends from the Spring 2014 runways — the contrasting collar. It's a look that can be both classic and ladylike; edgy and quirky (especially if you vary the shape and collar of the collar!). While the white contrasting collar is a look that one might normally associate with an investment banker, new styles also add the perfect touch of whimsy to decidedly downtown outfits. Here are six contrasting collared shirts to check out:
