The Jersey Shore gang made news of the popped collar. This season (thankfully), a much less wrangy version supplants it. Whether freshly starched or slicked-up in patent, fun detachable collars are peeking out from underneath knits, tees and coats. And because - when worn appropriately - they lend an air of prim formality, they're ideal in an office situation (unlike, say, The Situation).
