Let’s be honest: Tree stands are lacking a bit, right? It’s like putting together a great outfit and overlooking your shoes. If you’re going to deck out a tree with ornaments, lights, tinsel, and all the trimmings, then why stop short of covering the bare base?

Tree skirts used to be the answer — and they’re definitely still an option — but for anyone who thinks they’re too old-fashioned, we have an alternative: the tree collar. A tree collar is like a choker for the bottom of your tree, covering the stand you screw your evergreen into. We’ve been seeing them everywhere already, and we love them because they are a chic, unfussy way to mask that clunky base. You get full base coverage and can make a decorative statement (which we’ll get into below) without feeling like you’re stuck in Christmases past. And you never have to pick up a steamer to get wrinkles out or worry about how it’s “laying,” whatever that means anyway.

What collar will work best for you? Take your pick out of this stylistically diverse bunch of 10 choices. Before you buy, be sure to measure your tree and check out collar dimensions; some are one size fits all, but others are more tailored.

*A tip on storage from Lifestyle Editor Taryn Williford: At the end of the season when it’s time to put away the decorations, nest your wreathes inside the collar.
