Peter Pan collars have filtered in and out of fashion in the last decade or so—beginning first with Miu Miu‘s dainty rendition that stole the hearts of the street style set. This past year, they’ve come back in supersized proportions, dominating our feeds as influencers hop aboard the subtle but alluring micro-trend. From the likes of Instagram muse Reese Blutstein to OG blogger Susie Bubble, the penchant for oversized collars is well-documented.
Leading the statement collar pack is undeniably Copenhagen-based brand, Ganni, purveyor of some of the most covetable blouses that make collars the star of the show. Also one to watch? Ashiya Omundsen, who runs the Melbourne-based ethical label, Par Moi, offers made-to-order statement blouses with collars reminiscent of the Victorian era. Unassuming but head-turning, the oversized collar is surprisingly easy to style. Pair it with your favourite wide-legged denim for a daytime look, or opt for a tiered midi skirt for a more structured, put-together ensemble. Think of it as the sartorial embodiment of the elusive je ne sais quoi—but Scandinavian.
