A Peter Pan collar is a popular term for a style of clothing collar. It is named after the collar of Maude Adams’s costume in her 1905 role as Peter Pan, although similar styles had been worn before this date.
The Peter Pan collar is a form of flat collar, one of the three basic collar types along with stand and roll collars. It is cut to fit around the neckline, following the curve, and to lie flat upon the torso. It can be made either as one part, with a front-fastening bodice, or in two parts to accommodate a back fastening while retaining the front opening. It is defined as small and soft, with rounded corners. Although regularly part of women’s fashion since the 1900s, including a popular wedding dress detail in the mid-20th century, the collar has been mainly associated with children’s wear since the 1920s.
One of my favorite trends lately has got to be the Peter Pan collar trend. I got introduced to this trend when stylist Stephanie showed me a peter pan collar necklace at the latest favorite shoot and have been in love with the trend ever since.
