You all probably know that high collars are in - from our OOTD roundup this past Monday to lots of brands releasing their own versions.

It flatters everyone and transforms outfits into picture-worthy frocks!

If you don’t live in a country with four seasons but still want to sport this trend, ASOS’s sleeveless origami tunic is the one for you. Its lightweight fabric makes it extra breathable and it’s black! You can never go wrong when wearing black - it’s slimming, chic, and luxurious!


Cropped Boxy Top
