how they wear: peter pan collars

I've seen Peter Pan collars on dresses, coats, shirts, t-shirt, tunics and even as stand alone collars to add a little bit of something extra to a outfit. They add a bit of instant style to what could have been a really boring outfit.! They have this irresistible geek chic that I cant help but be drawn too! I think they are a totally interchangeable season piece, as they look adorable on summer dresses and shirt ones can be worn in the winter layered up with cardigans!

Maria & Annabel's looks are possibly my favourite ways to embrace a Peter Pan collar. The whole librarian/secretary/school girl look looks really cool. I love the way they have the tied ribbon in the middle of their shirts! That is something I'd defiantly like to try at some point! I adore the pastel yellow shirt on Mitzi Coco. Paired with those highwaisted shorts and brogues its a perfect summer look! I'm going trawling over Etsy for a detachable Peter Pan Collar!

I've been on the hunt for a Peter Pan collared dress for a while now, and I recently bought three dresses from Topshop with all with adorable peter pan collars! I cant wait to show you when Im back from holiday! I've got three different colours too, so Ill be doing a Keep or Return asking which is the best colour for me! I love the dresses by in typical Topshop style they are ridiculously see through so I need to buy a slip, and I cant decide which colour to keep, So I think I'll do a keep or return on it soon! I really need a white peter pan collared shirt in my wardrobe too!
