Peter Pan Collar

A little bit of history:  The rounded collar, sometimes detachable, became popular in women’s and children’s clothing in the early- and mid-20th century.  Even today, the style channels an unmistakable vintage glamor vibe.

Michelle Williams (right) was photographed for the March 2011 issue of Interview wearing a detachable Peter Pan collar from Louis Vuitton’s Fall 2011 collection. For the July 2011 issue of Marie Claire, Elle Fanning (left) donned the same collar — and struck a similar pose.  Both photo shoots evoked a classic old Hollywood feel.  Tres chic.

ASOS is featuring the sweetest tops, dresses,  and attachable collars with feminine peter pan accents.

    The collar is so elegant and sophisticated! The only negative thing about it is that a woman can’t wear high neck collar if she has full breasts…

    You hit the nail on the head with the ASOS selections. I actually just picked up one of these tops, from ASOS of course!

    Wow, it’s amazing how innocent these collars make the outfits look! Even the sheer dress on the top right manages to look sweet.
