This is the DIY lace collar I made last week – the step-by-step tutorial is here if you’d like to have a look/attempt one yourself. As soon as I spotted the pale pink striped shirt, I knew it’d make a great collar to wear with my pastel pink jeans and a grey marl tee… et voila! I love it when a plan comes together.

The collar can be a bit awkward to wear – it’s very stiff, so has a tendency to ride up and sit above the neckline (as seen in photo two!). But a bit of repositioning soon sorts that out, and I think it’d be even less of a problem with a higher neckline.

So, easy to make AND easy to wear too! Anyone had a go at creating their own lace collar? Let me know!



really suits the outfit. love the lippie too. would be great if you could include what lipstick you’re wearing in the outfit details as I think it adds to the overall effect… ta!


Oh I definitely will from now on, Gina! In this outfit it’s Brighton Rock by Topshop Makeup 🙂
