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 fave.....

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

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

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


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.
