Consider playing with sleeve proportions or adding embellishments if you want feminine flair… But for those looking for something a bit more unexpected, dare we suggest pairing with spikes, studs or combat boots? Read on for tips on how to style your Peter Pan collars:
Spikes and studs
Take some cues from British designer Alessandra Rich and her latest FW21 collection: toughen up retro elements with a hint of studs, spikes, and pointy pumps. By pairing this traditional collared blouse with a pencil skirt and pointed heels, you’ll get extra feminine flair.
Influencer and eyewear designer Linda Tol sported a Ganni x Levi’s Peter Pan collar shirt with matching jeans in the same shade, so do the same and channel the ’70s by pairing your shirt with high-waisted and wide-legged jeans. Don’t forget stacked boots and oversized sunglasses for a finishing touch.
We can’t get enough of rising Scandinavian star designer Cecilie Bahnsen, and we’re definitely not the only ones with a soft spot for her voluminous dresses. This black, floor-length dress with an empire waist and exaggerated sleeves feels sculptural yet effortless at the same time. Style yours with thick-soled sandals or brogues.
Singapore-based influencer Yoyo Cao’s Instagram page is a great source of outfit inspo, and we love how she paired a pretty Peter Pan collar dress from Fendi with a pair of combat boots. Adding footwear with a rugged, chunky sole can easily transform a dainty, delicate look to something more edgy.
Ella Emhoff, the stepdaughter of Vice President Kamala Harris, stepped into the style spotlight at the 46th Presidential Inauguration in Washington DC. The 22-year-old design student paired her embellished coat with a Peter Pan collar by Miu Miu with a dainty turn lock purse and thin headband.
