Caught necking: scrap the scarf for this artful collar

These handmade lace collars from Heather Martin may look avant-garde, but Kasha Bilobram, owner of the chic Fawn boutique, disagrees. “Put it on with a simple dress or jeans a blazer, and you’re instantly dressed,” she says. “It’s effortless, and they make an ordinary outfit interesting.”

We like them because they’re an artful mix of the trendy chunky necklaces we’re seeing everywhere and the lightweight scarves that Torontonians can’t get enough of.
