Trend Spotting – The allure of the Peter Pan collar + tips to make this trend your own
Posted on October 18 2011
There’s nothing immature about the latest trend gaining speed in fall fashion. The Peter Pan collar is a mix of ladylike qualities and youthful independence. It’s slightly delicate and playful at the same time. Hollywood of course is front and center with this trend. From the runways of Louis Vuitton to the red carpet and magazine covers, Stars can’t seem to get enough. Here are some stand out looks featuring the Peter Pan collar.
Test driving the trend: The Peter Pan collar happens to be one of my favorite features on a jacket. I’m a huge fan of 50s and 60s style jackets and have found over the years that I’ve acquired quite a few pieces with the Peter Pan collar. It’s allure to me is that it’s delicate, structured and ladylike all at once.
Style Tip: A jacket with a Peter Pan collar can be buttoned up or even played up with a scarf tied into a bow. In the past, I’ve paired the light wool jacket I’m wearing above with skinny jeans and over-the-knee boots as well as with a pencil skirt. I love that it’s that versatile.
