There is a saying that “good things come in small packages” and, here at Mama’s A Rolling Stone, we couldn’t agree more! After all, one of the season’s most major trends is neither bold nor big. On the contrary, dear readers, the latest trend to sweep the fashion world—Peter Pan collars—is unfussy and somewhat inconspicuous, but worth noting all the same! In fact, thanks to stylish stars like Kate Moss and Florence Welch, the Peter Pan collar is having a major fashion moment! On that note, if you are ready to discover all the need-to-know details on how to work this trend, click through to today’s Trend Report for the scoop!
It is no surprise to see Kate Moss leading the pack when it comes to Peter Pan collars. Kate was spotted out and about in London last month wearing a little black dress, which she paired with pointy pumps and her signature dark sunglasses. We like the way Kate’s white Peter Pan collar adds a youthful and girly touch to her otherwise sexy ensemble. The result is an ultra-chic look that is perfect for your next night out with the girls. To put together a similar look, pick up Motel’s Alexis Dress ($70) or Jason Wu’s Belted Jersey Dress ($1,070) and pair it with Boutique 9’s Quinn Pointy Toe Pumps ($150).
When it comes to the red carpet, Emma Roberts is a rising star, and it is not hard to see why. Emma was spotted at an event in West Hollywood late last month wearing ASOS’s Mesh Dress ($77.58), which she paired with patent nude platforms. While the flared skirt and Peter Pan collar give this ensemble a 1960s-inspired charm, the color and silhouette keep the outfit fresh and modern. To try this look for yourself, pick up Emma’s exact dress or check out Forever 21’s Peter Pan Collar Lace Dress ($22.80). Complete your look by adding Dolce Vita’s Dorothy Pumps ($134.55).
One of the things we love most about this trend is that it isn’t limited to mini dresses. On the contrary, dear readers! Back in April, Freida Pinto wore a grey knit Louis Vuitton romper—with a white collar—to a Glamour Magazine event in Beverly Hills. The combination of the romper silhouette with the Peter Pan collar gives the ensemble a youthful feel, but the addition of peep-toe patent pumps makes this look feel all grown up! To give this look a try, grab Opening Ceremony’s Peter Pan Collar Onesie ($354) and pair it with Topshop’s Sienna Patent Platform Peep Toe Shoes ($124).
Florence Welch was spotted at the Nylon Music Issue launch party in New York City earlier this month wearing a folky Anna Sui dress with a matching collar. We like the way Florence has balanced the hippie-luxe vibe of the dress with modern accessories such as a quilted Chanel bag and patent Mary Jane heels. The result is a look that stays true to Florence’s signature bohemian rocker aesthetic. To create an equally chic ensemble, pick up Anna Sui’s Metallic Ribbon Striped Chiffon Dress ($308) or Forever 21’s Dove Dress ($22.80) and pair it with La Fenice’s Elle Mary Jane Patent Pumps ($175) and a felt fedora.
