Seen on everyone from international icon Alexa Chung to Chictopia icon llymlrs, the peter pan collar is an adorable way to add a touch of doll-like whimsy to any outfit. Read on for styling tips and to see how other Chictopians rock the look!
Behind the Collar
So why is it called the Peter Pan collar, anyway? Didn’t P.P. wear a v-neck? Yes, you’re right… if you only saw the Disney film version. Rumor has it that in the stage adaptation (first seen in 1904), the star who never grew up rocked the soft, rounded style. I guess we have a costume designer to thank for this trend! (Source)
There are a few varieties of the peter pan collar, whether it’s small and slim like devious_lisa, or a starched white like mwa_mwa, the look is still sweet and chic! Also look to mayo_wo and llymlrs for cute looks that will transport you to Never-never land.
Cropped-hair cuties Carey Mulligan, Emma Watson, and Agyness Deynn have all been spotted in peter pan collars. The delicate style of this trend feminizes their boyish ’dos. Alexa Chung is also a huge fan, as the look is perfectly in synch with her vintage/chic style.
