Silk blouses are a must-have item right now, and our favorites are topped with Peter Pan collars. Traditionally relegated to children’s clothes, this small, rounded style was all over the spring runways. Louis Vuitton even paired them with S&M-inspired pieces. Weird juxtaposition? Not at all. This is one piece that that can transform a look in a sartorial second. Skirt too short? Add a top with a Peter Pan collar and you suddenly seem downright demure with a bit of Twiggy-era mod thrown in. Jeans too tight? Again, the Peter Pan will take you straight into the realm of posh equestrian chic. Style icon Alexa Chung (we know, we blog about her a lot) is the perfect ambassador of Peter Pan collar perfection–she pairs hers with short-shorts to give her outfit a sweet yet cheeky edge that we absolutely love.
