I have this compulsion to ALWAYS turn up EVERY COLLAR i wear. When distracted, I will even unconsciously turn up the collar of the person with whom I am talking which makes for awkward situations every once in a while. I don’t know what it is - perhaps my love for fashion icon Marlena Dietrich - but I just find an upturned collar to be, well, SEXY. Especially on women. Add a loose tie around it and I go weak in the knees.
I am all for upturning any collar on any piece of clothing: especially coats, jackets and blazers. Except for Tuxedo jackets. Don’t do it. Show off those satin lapels. Try it. Go on. Just do it. Before you know it, you’ll be wearing suspenders and seductively peering over the top of your glasses.
