When it comes to work-from-home outfits, it can be really easy to fall into the trap of popping a blazer over the solid colored T-shirt you’ve been wearing for several days in a row before hopping into a Zoom meeting. While this likely passes the “my boss is on, so I need to look professional and put together” test, there are a few ways to add a little more style and flair to your WFH uniform.
One foolproof solution to make a statement with your outfit is with a detachable shirt collar. They look like a classic blouse or button-down shirt on the outside, but you could actually just pop it onto your neck before you throw on a sweater, dress or another shirt.
The best thing about faux collars are the infinite possibilities they bring. Buying just a few different designs can help any boring black dress become something you might see Anna Wintour wearing at Paris Fashion Week or Blair Waldorf hanging out on the steps at the Met.
The Shop TODAY team has rounded up 11 detachable shirt collars and half blouses that are sure to make any work-from-home outfit a little more fashion-forward.
