Massive thanks to Shopafrolic for turning me on to CeCe Toppings. Don’t know if any of your remember the old school dickie, but it’s back with a fabulous new look! (Let’s call them faux collars as the word dickie just kind of makes me uncomfortable. Yes, I still have a 5th grade sense of humor). My grandmother used to wear dickies faux collars in every color of the rainbow. Hers were all turtlenecks though, which just don’t work for everybody.

But CeCe Toppings’ versions are versatile collared cuts in a bunch of cool colors and patterns. While I have yet to physically try one, I am loving what I’m seeing on the site. While a full-on shirt can be just plain annoying (think of the constant tugging and re-adjusting under sweaters), the crispness of a button-down collar works brilliantly with fall’s cozy knit tops.

I’m particularly drawn to the ruffled and peter pan collars. Can’t wait to try them!

    I can’t believe the dickey (faux) collar ever lost popularity! I have purchased from CeCe and while the paterns were cool, the quality was just so-so. I recently found some basic collars at a site called & the price was great & the quality was top notch. Hope this was helpful to someone! Long Live The Dickey!
