In part 1 of our necklines topic, Laura discussed a variety of neckline styles. Here in part 2, we are continuing the conversation by offering a crash course on collars. Our Fashionability 101 segments are meant to inform those of you who may consider yourselves among the fashion clueless, or who are new to fashion, or who just want to add a few new words to their fashion vocabulary. Stay tuned for more educational insights from the team at the Fashionability Channel!
What on Earth is a cowl, a surplice, a batou? Laura puts a fine point on the basics of a beautiful neckline. Sure, you probably know what a crew neck or a V-neck top looks like, but when you really want to add some flair to your look, focus on a unique neckline to ratchet up the style factor. In part 1, we’ll identify some basic neckline types and their variations, and in part 2, we’ll discuss collar treatments as well. Whether shopping for yourself or someone else, it helps to know how to describe specific garment features. Questions?
