Mamas, there's fun, 60's Mod vibe afoot. I love it. And one of the hallmarks? Yup - the Peter Pan collar. Retailers are currently stocking a range of Peter Pan collared blouses, tees and sweaters (remember M's adorable pullover from J.Crew?)....but I'm kinda loving the Peter Pan collar. As in, just the collar. A detachable Peter Pan collar. Why?
Well....it's slightly more cost-effective and versatile...but I just really like the way it dramatically changes the look of my t-shirt & jeans uniform.
Besides, the collars are totally mom-friendly (unless you find a jewel-encrusted one, they are soft enough for babywearing) and just look so...cute? But in the coolest possible way? Cute-cool? Is that a thing? Gag. Let's go with...charming insouciance. BAM.
After lots (and lots and lots) of searching, I fell in love with Very Vague's detachable Peter Pan collars. They are simple, hand-made, and gorgeous. She was kind enough to send me a black one and a plain white one to try....but she also makes fab patterned collars. Polka dot, anyone? And at $18 a pop, they are an easy way to transform the daily mom-i-form.
Here are the three very mom-friendly ways I've been wearing my Peter Pan collars.....
