A boxy shirt with an oversized collar can be a staple if you know what to wear with it. An obvious and simple option is classic light blue jeans.

Tuck one end of the shirt into the waistband. No belt needed. Shoes should not be white and athletic. Black or brown mini heel mules work best.

Add a sophisticated look by wearing a tweed crop top over a shirt. Remember to straighten the collar.

Fake collars look great on feminine dresses with puffy lantern sleeves. Choose models with small, bright floral prints in deep blue or burgundy.

Don’t be afraid of the black and white classics. Wrap a dark dress with long sleeves at the waist with a wide belt with a large buckle. A lace collar and starched cuffs complete the trendy look.

Fashion critic Anna Khudoteplova believes what Peter Pan collars are in vogue as the accessory carries a romantic “retro flair”. He strongly diluted the aggressive fashion for androgyny and worn-out sport-chic.
