exaggerated collar sweater

Hot Under the Collar.

I already shared some of my favorite exaggerated collar pieces for this season a few weeks back, but I have recently come across a brilliant way to nail the trend by repurposing what you have in your closet: a detachable collar that can be layered with your favorite existing knitwear. Behold:

THIS $80 LR STATEMENT, AVAILABLE IN PRACTICAL WHITE OR WHIMSICAL FALL FLORAL

LE LION’S FABULOUS COLARETTE

S.E.A. MAGIC

THIS DRAMATIC PEARL STATEMENT FROM ZARA

THIS $23 ASOS SCORE

I would pair all of these with a simple cashmere crewneck!

P.S. A few other attached collar options I am obsessed with at the moment: this dramatic Vita Kin top, this Topshop knit, and this pilgrim chic dress I featured yesterday.

P.P.S. Some great sale scores at Shopbop.

P.P.P.S. Fleeces you need for fall.

  1. HELP!!! HELP HELP
    I just found out that my school is going to reopen and I have been out of the shopping loop since March. I am overwhelmed with going back into the classroom and getting my wardrobe together.
    Top ten for a 2nd grade, cotton loving teacher in California. BTW I am a woman of substance
    I do believe that I am not the only one ❤️❤️❤️
    Thermal long sleeve?
    Trousers?
    Shoes/boots to teach in

    Thanks in advance and just let me tell you that your children are ridiculously cute and little magpie pics going to school always puts a smile on my face.

    1. Thank you so much, Carol — and God bless you for your work. I am so deeply grateful for and in awe of the teachers out there. Because of you, I feel like my life has been able to lurch back into a state of semi-normalcy, with my daughter occupied and engaged, and the ability to afford my work the space it needs. Anyway, thank you —

      I will get to your wardrobe query in a post later this week where I respond to recent Magpie inquiries sharing what they are in the market for. Coming soon!

  2. Love the Topshop sweater! In my cart now. I’m also coveting the Athleta sherpa jacket but don’t really want to pay that much! Not sure which will come first: it goes on discount or I break down and just order it…

  3. I love this look and I can’t believe I hadn’t thought about looking for a detachable collar! The SEA and Zara pearl options are my fave. Thank you for posting this roundup!
