The ‘Stripes + Sequins’ ‘DIY Pearl Stud Collar’ stems from the websites collaboration with ‘A Sequin Dress at Breakfast’ writer Kiley and ‘Style Within Reach’ curator Caitlin. The three fashion and decor gurus have developed sizable online followings, amassing large numbers of hits and views on a daily basis.
Embellished collars have quickly become staples of current apparel lines, an instant favorite for women given the ornate yet prim look. Stripes + Sequins founder Grace Atwood describes herself as a “crafts nerd,” always in search of the latest supplies as a way to keep up with these very shifts.
Atwood applies the beads to a stiff band with Jewel-It glue, pearly studs and a plain white blouse. The rows of five border the ends of the shirt in a linear fashion, attracting eyes to the neck line.
