Most days when I look into my closet I feel like a little girl who never grew up. Everything inside (with the exception of "clubbing" dresses) is something I would have worn when I was a child. Back then I had a closet full of pretty dresses, if it was girly - I had it. Floral prints, lace, polka dots, ruffles, and peter pan collars were my favorites. So of course the peter pan collar is my top trend this season.
Unless you have been living under a rock this season, you will know what I'm talking about! That cute, round edge, flat collar (pictured above) that has been all over the highstreet in recent weeks and featured in many designer collections for SS11. The peter pan collar is everything I look for in fashion: feminine, innocent, and all around pretty!
The downside is that it hasn't made a huge appearance in plus sized fashiom quite yet. Stores such as Topshop, H&M, and New Look have had multiple pieces with the peter pan collar but its absent from most plus sized stores that I checked (Evans, Faith 21+, Style369 and Torrid) I can wear Topshop's largest size (UK 16) so I won't have to miss out completely, but I do hope more plus sized retailers embrace this trend. At the end of my search I found this ASOS CURVE Embellished Peter Pan Collar Shift Dress which comes in sizes UK 20-26. Embellished peter pan collar? Yes please! I am already thinking of ways I would wear this! Over the knee black socks and a side braid come to mind.
I'm keeping my fingers crossed that someone will make a nude colored dress with a lace peter pan collar and ruffled hem, that is my idea of perfect!
What do you girls think of the "peter pan" collars? Love them or hate them?
