Fashion Revival: Peter Pan Collar

by Emma Dibaja on July 29, 2011

I’m not usually one for mass-trends, but there are always some specific, fun things which I like. Not because they are in fashion, but more because I just like them irrespective of trends and time. But having said that, I do like to keep myself up-to-date on what’s happening on the fashion scene. And my latest discovery; a trend, which is beginning to really catch on, the Peter Pan collar. I’ve been an advocate of peter pan collars for ages, and now I see that others are doing the same, which is great.


For those not that familiar with this type of collar, a Peter Pan collar is small, flat and round-cornered.  It was really popular for women’s and children’s clothes in the early- and mid-20th century. And back in the day, in order to style the collar up a bit, women used to wear it with a tie or bow. Love it!
