Victorian lace collars are highly practical articles. They take the same function as a scarf, only more elegantly. You can wear them as part of a steampunk costume, or add them to an ordinary t-shirt to give it a unique look. The beauty of them isn’t just in their looks, it’s also in the fact that when the day warms up, you just take them off and stay cool.
Accessories make the look. It’s these little details that will set your costume apart from others.
