Fashion Affair: Peter Pan Collars

One of my favourite types of collar is the Peter Pan Collar.  I always wondered why it was named ‘Peter Pan’.  I found out that it is actually named after the collar that Maude Adams wore for her role as Peter Pan in 1905.  However, these types of collars had been worn previously.

These collars can be either sewn onto a dress or bought separately.

I love the above dress so much, I actually managed to find one on Asos last year! Now I wear it all the time.
