To channel Fall's ladylike look, we're embracing boxy bags, midi-skirts, and most recently — sweet Peter Pan collars on our blouses, sweaters, and dresses. Unlike sharp menswear, these collars are soft, girlie, and hint at something a little more retro. We're pairing ours with everything from crisp skinny pants, wide-leg denim, and curve-hugging pencil skirts to balance the prim and proper feel. Of course, there are other ways to wear them — like on an edgier sheer LBD or leopard-print blouse, for instance. Click through to shop 10 of our favorite ways to wear the trend.
>> Embrace Fall's prominent-collar trend with the season's newest batch of collar-shaped statement necklaces. These decadent (and detachable!) riffs on Peter Pan or tuxedo collars are the perfect way to transfer a bit of glitz to any ensemble, and suddenly we've been seeing them everywhere. Lanvin, Isaac Mizrahi, and Louis Vuitton (left) all currently offer equally dazzling versions, and Chanel debuted a dreamy diamante style for Resort 2012. Click through to shop 15 drool-worthy versions, now.
