Collar Chains

I promised I would blog about this and so here we go. As it’s ‘supposedly’ getting colder in Cape Town (I say supposedly as I keep seeing gorgeous pictures on my Twitter and Instagram feed of the sunsets and hearing about lovely winter’s days) and London is still chilly and rainy (surprise surprise), these little accessories are going to come in quite handy over the next few months when everyone is wearing button up shirts.

I first saw collar chains here and fell in love. I have been on the lookout ever since but it seems to be a very quiet trend, so basically not many people are wearing them. Which is wonderful as I don’t feel like wearing something that every girl has on.

So simple and gorgeous. (source)

This is my favourite one.

So there you have it! I haven’t been able to spot any available in South Africa but I know that they are available at Top Shop here in the UK so pop over and have a look. Let me know if you find any and if you will be wearing this accessory for winter?
