CeCe Toppings Review

Fall and winter clothes, thanks to the stylish layering look, can be expensive. There is a product that can help make your fall clothes much more versatile. CeCe Toppings are more modern versions of the classic "dickys" and allow you to add stylish collars to your outfit without creating unnecessary bulk and without breaking the bank. The brand was founded by Jamie Turquie, an innately stylish New Yorker whose habit of chopping her preppy button downs to limit bulk when worn under fitted cardigans or tailored blazers led to immediate requests for the same look from friends and family. 

They offer a variety of collars to match your personal style. There are classic styles to create the more polishes and business look and ruffled collars with ties to create a more feminine and elegant look. The toppings range in price from $37-$39.  They come in one size and look best with a V-neck or crew neck top.

Review:  I was given a Brown Leopard Classic CeCe Toppings to review.  I definitely like the layered look, but I often get way too hot at work to wear a long sleeve shirt underneath a sweater. For this reason, I think the product is great. I also like that it can be added to different tops to create different looks. I am not a fan of leopard print clothes, which is just a personal preference, but liked some of the other styles they offer.  The top was as easy to put on as you would imagine and I had no problem keeping it in place.   I am not someone who spends a lot of money on clothing, so the price is a bit of a deterrent for me. However, if you consider how many uses you could get from one top and how the collar will likely never completely go out of style (and you will never outgrow it), then you can justify spending the money on it since you will likely own it forever.

Thank you for the review of CeCe Toppings. Although not a new concept, dickeys are making a fashion comeback due to all of the ruffle and peter pan collars shown on the runway.

Please check out my site During the holiday season, many women find themselves attending various social, school and corporate parties. Holidickeys allow them to turn their existing wardrobe into a holiday wardrobe without the huge investment. In this economy, women are reluctant to buy a high priced sweater or outfit that they can wear once and store for the rest of the year. And let's face it - a lot of the holiday inspired clothing on the market isn't that flattering.

As an Ivy League trained engineer, I used my engineering knowledge to design a dickey that does not spin and stays put with out additional contraptions. Holidickeys are festive enough to wear to a party yet attractive enough to wear casually. Our prints and styles are not literal and are very versatile. Every Holidickeys is under $30 and I offer free shipping.

Thank you!

Thank you
