Peter Pan Collars
The Peter Pan collar has been a huge detail in the fashion world for a few seasons now. The name of the collar is a reference to Peter Pan, a fictional character who lives in Neverland in the novel of the same name, written by J.M. Barrie in the early 1900s. The story is a fairytale about a little boy who never grows up, and the Peter Pan collar is intended to evoke the same fairytale sense of eternal youthfulness. On clothing for young girls, the collar is a perennial favorite since it is a classic, simple look. On older women, it is often a subject of debate in the fashion world, with many women either loving or hating it. However, these collars are always soft and rounded to give the perfect ladylike finish to an outfit. Peter Pan collars can be bought separately so you can add them to any piece of clothing, or you can buy a Peter Pan collar dress or shirt or top as they all over the high street at the moment.
If you like sheer blouses to mix and match with another outfits, then a sheer blouse with Peter Pan collar is a must have for you! Peter Pan collars in contrasting colors give sheer blouses a cute touch that are perfect for softening any severe work wear or heavily tailored trousers, jackets or blazers. Wear your sheer blouse with Peter Pan collar with high-waisted shorts in burgundy, navy, khaki or black and a pair of classic brogues for a simple but elegant and stylish daytime look, and switch the brogues for wedge-heeled boots or stilettos to take it instantly from day to night. Those with smaller busts should pick blouses with ruffles to create volume and shape, while v-neck, rather than round-neck is a more flattering choice for those with a big bust.

The possibilities with the Peter Pan collar in dresses or tops are seemingly endless, and every season it seems like the collar style is going to be less of a fad and more of a successful comeback for the 1960s style.
