Neckwear is my fashion obsession. Bows, ties, collars, dickies: bring ‘em on. As I write this, I’m wearing a black ASOS dress with a polkadot Peter Pan collar AND bow-tie. In my universe, no outfit is complete without a little collar flare. And now more than ever, it seems the fashion gods (and Alexa Chung!) agree.
Maje had some great ones this year, but the mother of all Peter Pan collars had to be the impossible-to-get white patent leather Louis Vuitton version, which marries an almost puritancial appeal with fetish stying. Genius!
What is it about the collar that’s so appealing? I’d say that it instantly ups the ladylike factor of any ensemble. And then there’s the fact that I’ve always loved grown-up clothes that look like children’s clothes (you’ll have to ask my shrink to get to the bottom of that one).
At this point, I hope I’ve convinced you that you NEED a Peter Pan collar NOW. There is no shortage of cleverly collared treasures out there—from stand-alone pieces that work as necklaces to amazing trompe l’oeil treatments. Click through to shop my favorites:
