When most people hear the name Peter Pan, they often think of a favorite childhood book or Disney cartoon. When a fashionista hears the words Peter Pan, they often think about one thing … the Peter Pan collar. Once a favorite of schoolchildren; full-grown adult women have now embraced the trend with open arms.
The Peter Pan collar is great because it can give your outfit a sweet and youthful vintage look that can either be dressed down or dressed up. Designers are giving shoppers many options by attaching the collars to blouses that are tucked under chunky knit sweaters or bedazzling them with sequins and attaching them to cocktail dresses. If you prefer a goth look, stores are selling the Wednesday Addams version on a black dress with a contrasting white or plain black collar. British e-store ASOS sells many items featuring the cute, rounded collar for straight, petite, and plus sizes.
The always chic teen actress Hailee Steinfeld worked a Miu Miu dress at a recent premier with a Peter Pan collar full of pearls and other baubles. Hipster goddess Alexa Chung was seen during fashion week wearing her Peter Pan collar ever so sweetly with a grey sweater and a pretty little floral skirt. The two prove that you can dress the look up or down, but what if you want to sex it up a little bit? Model turned actress Brooklyn Decker showed up at a recent Sephora event in a sexy black dress with a deep opening beneath the white Peter Pan collar.
