Smocked Pussy Bow Alternative to Oversized Collar Trend

Ruth Eads

I love the oversized collar trend!  It is all the rage and can be seen in both street style fashion and along the Spring/Summer 2021 runways.  V.P. Kamala Harris' step daughter took the nation by storm when she wore a lovely oversized white collar to the President's Inauguration over a fabulous coat. The models, influencers, insta-famous look marvelous as they pair the collar with sweaters, jeans, coats, crop tops, etc.  For me personally, the look doesn't work.  As many times as I have tried, I can not pull-off this bibbed, pilgrim-esque accessory.  Fortunately I have found just the right solution for those like me who seek this popular 2021 look...

Enter the smocked pussy bow as seen in this picture!  It provides the look of a dickey, oversized collar but is all wrapped up in a pre-tied bow ready for you to fluff and fasten. Its Victorian charm added over even the most casual of pieces, will elevate your look with class and sophistication.  

Problem solved!

Cherry on Top

Ruth Eads

When my favorite Anthropologie jumpsuit by Porridge Clothing seemed a bit too formal for a gathering of 1st graders, and with no time to change from office to classroom, I quickly added a Ruth EADS collar in the whimsical Cherry on Top print.  Voila!  Not only did the kids thoroughly enjoy story hour and my favorite children's book, Happy Birthday Madame Chapeau, but the teachers were smitten with my Ruth EADS collar!   

Removable collars are an easy way to not only dress up an outfit, but also allow for a bit of whimsy and personality to be easily added when the situation requires!
