DIY: Collar Necklace

Hi Everyone! I've got the collar craze. I was inspired to make a collar necklace after watching fashion guru Chriselle's DIY- The Collar Craze video which is a very cool and creative idea. In the video she shows a simple way to make a collar necklace from a men collard shirt and accessories you already own.The collar necklace is a super chic way to spice up your dresses, shirts, sweaters and really make a fashion statement. Check out Chriselle's video below to make your own. I've included pictures of my completed collar statement necklace below as     well, let me know what you think.

Top 5 Winter Must Haves

Happy Winter 2012 Everybody! Here in Charlotte North Carolina the real cold winter weather seems to just be getting started. Well now that it's actually here, this calls for an update in my fashion wardrobe. Below are my top 5 winter must haves this season. These key pieces will definitely update your wardrobe and keep you fashionably warm too.  
  
1. Cowl-Neck Sweater 
Cowl-neck sweaters are the perfect alternative to your classic turtle neck sweater. The cowl-neck sweater is this season’s IT sweater style.These sweaters have a draped casual neckline which brings attention to your face. You can find these sweaters in a variety of colors and styles. Below are some cowl-neck sweaters and the top of my gold metallic cowl-neck sweater.

2. Faux Black Leather Jacket
A faux black leather jacket is perfect for many seasons. This winter pull out or get a thicker leather jacket to keep warm. The faux black leather jacket is very versatile and comes in different styles such as the Moto or Bomber.You can give any outfit an edge this winter with a black leather jacket, wear  it with dresses, with jeans, leggings you name it.

3. Corduroy Pants
Corduroy pants are a chic must have this winter. Cords are warmer than your regular pair of jeans so they will keep your legs warm in the colder weather. These pants are available in many colors and styles, such as neutrals or brights, skinny, flared and boot cut styles.

4. Faux Fur 
Faux fur pieces are all the rage this winter. Try a faux fur trim cape which adds a little bit of glamor if you’re not ready for a full on faux fur piece. My favorite is the  faux fur vest which is a great layering piece to go under coats or over sweaters. Add a hint of glam with a faux fur stole to accessorize your dress for an elegant look.

5. Circle Scarves
Now that the cold weather has arrived I grab my circle scarf to keep warm. Circle scarves give a modern vibe to your outfit. You could wear your favorite circle scarf over your coats, cardigans and sweaters. Wrap the circle scarf two or three times around your neck for a warm comfy fit. For a head wrap you can hang the entire loop over your head covering your ears and wrap it once or twice around your neck, depending on the length.

Show off you style this winter, even when it’s freezing cold outside.


XOXO
