In the last year, peter-pan collar has evolved from the basic shirt collar, into many bejewlled, floral, lace varieties.
Let's start with the very basics.
|Alexa Chung @ LV|
Alexa's style is perfect for this trend. Keeping the top half very neutral with white and grey, allow for room to play it up with a bit of a fuller & colourful skirt on the bottom.
Also a very simple look, the strategic design really show off the collar.
oh look, peter-pan & bow-tie.
After you've mastered the basics, you can change up the colours a little bit.
I like this look because it's very well put together without looking too polished. The buttons form a row to naturally draw the eye upward, and keeping the collars and hat the same colour let the look remain youthful.
Blue & orange are on the very opposite of the colour wheel, such high contrast! Me love!
For the glam queen in all of us, bejewel all the things!
Notice the line coming down from the collar, it elongate the body, and making the look more mature.
I believe this is Miu Miu.
One more to finish the post, floral is also hot this summer, but not all florals are created equal. The trick is to pick base colours that suit your complexion, that flower size that also suit your size. (hmm, maybe I should do another post on florals...)
Keeping everything pastel, and using the mauvy/pink sweater to pick up on the bit of pink in the flower. This print looks a bit wall-paper like, but it works with the pin-up style of her makeup. With everything else very soft, you can afford to be a bit more dramatic with your makeup.
