Peter Pan collar - channel your inner Alexa








I was having a little stroll through the discount department store Kmart today & I did a double take when I saw some pretty peter pan collar tops. They were $19 each.

One was white with a black collar & ribbon

The other was black with a white collar and ribbon



& the close up....



I thought they were cute & a cheap & cheerful way to dress up jeans, pants, a skirt, even cargo pants/chinos.

Cute & from sizes 8 to18.

Need some inspiration?

On the runway (left to right) - in DKNY (prim), Giambattista Valli (oversized) & Louis Vuitton (removable)




Off the runway - snazzed up with pearls & gems by Hailee Steinfeld (Miu Miu)



Demure on Alexa Chung peeking out over a sweater - you can do yours with a cardi too.



Pretty & sweet on Carey Mulligan




A version on an ASOS frock



an ASOS top



& a cool tough/soft look.....note that pleated skirts are huge for spring....



a nautical look......my fave.....




Add a lace or sheer neckline and sleeve and it becomes anything but demure......like Alexa in Pucci.....


& Kylie Minogue in the same frock - but not rocking it as well IMO.....




Then there are the metal/resin versions...like this Lanvin at $2K AU.


Others.....



an Asos metallic one.....
& you can get them at any price point - in Australia, Diva, Lovisa & Equip have many to choose from......



Tips: If you are big busted and the top covers your decolletage, the the peter pan collar may not be the best for you. However if the top has a scoop neck with a peter pan collar that isnt too large, then it may be OK for a big bust. Small busts should welcome peter pan collars.


PS: Kmart also had the following two peter pan tops for $19 each. Stay away from these.
Eeeeeeeewwwwwww.
