Whether plain or embellished/bejeweled, collars are EVERYWHERE this year. I could not help myself but to score a few of these cute, girlie shirts myself. At first I wasn’t really sure about the Peter Pan round collar style, because I was afraid it would make me look a lil’ younger ( not that there’s anything wrong with that of course ). And you know what? As long as you style it up FRESH with some jeans or a skirt, you can never go wrong with the Peter Pan collar.
Here’s me in the fitting room of H&M trying on a pearl-embellished Peter Pan collar shirt with a peplum skirt.
And of course I had to take both of them home with me! I got the Peter Pan collar shirt for €24.95 and the peplum skirt was on sale for just €10. They’re both from the H&M DIVIDED collection.
If you wonder where this cute fashion trend got its name from, here’s what Wikipedia had to say about it:
A Peter Pan collar is a flat, round-cornered clothing collar. It is named after the collar of the costume worn in 1905 by actress Maude Adams in her role as Peter Pan. Since then, it has become a women’s fashion item several times, and is particularly associated with little girls’ dresses.
