How She’d Wear It with Style and Cheek – 60s Peter Pan Collar

HSWI September 2014

Back in 2012 the peter pan was the hottest collar around, with mod loving celebrities such as Alexa Chung and Zooey Deschanel making it part of their daily wardrobe. While this is a trend that shows up almost every decade, one of its most notable appearances was on 1960s mod mini dresses, specifically a black dress with a white collar. Given their popularity a few years back there are still some incredibly cute collared pieces out there and if you’re going for a 60s look it is a must-have addition to your closet. So take those collars and spice them up with some mod-ittude because as you can see the more 60s the vibe, the more fun the look.

1. MANGO Wool-Blend Cape

2. Ivanka Trump Heather Top Handle Tote

3. ModCloth Dazzling At Dinner Dress


5. Tory Burch Cecily Stud Earrings

6. Elizabeth And James Round Metal-Trim Plastic Sunglasses

7. J.Crew Lulu Frost Mystique Bracelet

8. Berry Oval Etched Ring

9. Alexis Bittar Crystal Encrusted Fox Ring

10. TOPSHOP JOANNA Mid Bow Front Shoes

This outfit reminds me of American Horror Story: Coven because of the vintage witchy look. 60s style sometimes get a bad rap for feeling costumey but this fall I think it should be embraced. While I’m giving you the ultimate 60s example, you can wear any combination of accessories that fits your style. However, if you do happen to want that ultimate mod witchy look, this is it. Complete with circular sunglasses, bow front shoes, and a fantastic cape to hide your broom.

1. Zara Double-Breasted Short Coat

2. Hinge ‘Canton’ Over The Knee Boot

3. ModCloth Wine Appreciation Sweater In Goldenrod

4. TOPSHOP Mini Laser-Cut Holdall

5. Lulu Frost Decade Earring

6. Wonderland Stateline Sunglasses

7. Monserat De Lucca Aries Zodiac Necklace

8. Zara Jacquard Miniskirt

What I love about this outfit is that it doesn’t fit into a box. It’s a bit sassy and a bit collegiate. The yellow of the sweater and green jewel tone of the bag are classic 60s colors, but here they’re really the two most conservative pieces in the look. While the collar might be proper, the outfit screams attitude. There is just something mischievous, even sultry about combining buttoned up classics with a few catty pieces like these over the knee boots and wrap miniskirt. You have somewhere to be and no time for people getting in your way.
