DIY Collar Contrast (YSL Inspired)

So one of my mottos is "If I can't afford it, then I sure as heck can figure out how to make it!" And I stand by that 100%. I was recently scrolling on the YSL website (why? I have no idea...) and I saw this awesome black minimalist shirt with white detailing and I thought, that would look great on me. However I wasn't going to pay $950 for it. So I decided I would make a variation of it. A white button up, with a black collar. Now I've seen this on Pinterest, and I'm always like "ooh I can make that!" But I never actually do... However TODAY is different! (actually yesterday) So here it is, let me know what you guys think! I want to see what you guys come up with so be sure to tag me on Instagram @victoralexanderco and I'll share your DIYs on the blog and IG. You can also share them on Facebook!

Happy DIYing!
