This is why you need to add collars to your summer wardrobe

Fashion trends come and go - that's why they're called trends.

If there's one trend you need to hop on immediately this summer, it's this - collars.


You've probably already seen them all over your Instagram feed and every time you jump on TikTok, but they're something you'll definitely want to invest in.

From dresses to blouses, you'll be sure to find a style that suits you, it's just about where to look.

Collared clothing is all over this season's catwalks, last year we had the puffy sleeves, but now it's this.

Everyone from Tory Burch and Bottega Veneta to Chloé and Louis Vuitton, there isn't a designer that hasn't hopped on this trend, or predicted it in the first place.


Of course, you don't need to go out buying from those brands specifically, there are plenty of high street stores selling clothing just as stunning and at a much more reasonable price.

Zara, Mango, H&M and Penneys all have beautiful options for a statement collar, whether you're looking for a structured blazer style or a more frilled and aloof dress, there's something for everyone.

We've compiled just a few of our favourite's from the high street, and a way for you to get your hands on them immediately.

This M&S jumpsuit is exactly how they describe it, ideal for that first summer staycation.


This is such an easy piece to keep in your wardrobe, minimal styling needed and versatile for any occasion? Yes, please.

Does Zara ever let us down? They definitely aren't with their endless collection of blazers.


Cropped, oversized, fitted, whatever you've got your eye on - Zara has it. And not only do they have it, you're almost guaranteed to find a matching skirt or trousers only around the corner.

The full suit look - or just the solo blazer - is what you need if that off-duty model, street style vibe is what you're going for.

H&M and their endless dress supply is to die for, but this one in particular is everything right in this world (brb, adding to basket.)


Just picture it, sitting in a restaurant by the beach, the sun is setting, you're sipping on a daiquiri and wearing this dress - we've convinced you right?

Overshirts - if you don't already have one, get a hold of one immediately.

And lucky for us, you won't be long looking before you find one you adore, these are in every store you'll head into. They're perfect for this occasional sun we're getting, keeping your temperature regulated while amplifying your look.

This one from Mango is one of our top picks, and what an ideal summer colour too.

Just like the overshirt, oversized shirts can have the same effect - and are so much more versatile.

Tuck them into jeans, drape over a dress or even make them into a dress, there's so much to do with them.

And finally - the collared crop top. Like the others, you won't be far before spotting one of these and they are so great for a casual and chill look.

Long sleeve, short or sleeveless. Any colour or pattern imaginable, you'll find one immediately, and this Asos one is what we've got our eye on.
