The neck has become the focus for accessories and detail in recent seasons with scarves, draping fabric and this winter, the polo neck. The neck trend for Spring/Summer is the collar, and more specifically the Peter Pan collar. As the name Peter Pan suggests it can have a playful feel about it, but it can also look very grown-up and ladylike.
Romantic personalities will enjoy styles in pretty lace, chiffon and rounder edges which add femininity to an outfit. Alternatively, you could try a little colour clashing and find a garment in one strong shade with the collar in a different bold shade. It can also look very simple and neat in a neutral shade and with a pointy collar it can really smarten up an outfit.
Neck decoration isn’t for everyone and generally isn’t recommended if you have a short neck. The Peter Pan collar can be very subtle or it can be the focus point of your outfit. It can be a great way to add interest to the top half of a triangle shaped body. If you are fuller in the bust make sure you choose a soft, rounded collar as oppose to a stiff, starched pointed one.
If you’re very crafty and creative you can design your own and attach it to any garment you like, a la Gok!
