The Peter Pan collar necklace is a popular style for classic and cute looks, and although the shape is distinct, it can be recreated with a variety of materials and techniques. There are fabric collars, beadwork, chain, rhinestone and more. Today, I thought we’d take a look at two ways to wear a Peter Pan collar.
I chose a beautiful cream colored wood collar to start, and paired it with a navy blue dress that’s just the right amount of frilly. From there, I started collecting unique items with a fun nautical theme, and things just took off.
The perfect color to top off a navy and cream palette is bold lipstick red. Just a few hints here and there really pop and add a little Mad Men style punch. Alternatively, I chose red to be the main color for a more casual top-and-jeans outfit, with slouchy sleeves to give it a frilly twist. So much red leaves less room for bold accessories, so I kept it simple with some nautical anchor post earrings and a solid navy leather bag.
Sometimes it’s hard to find the perfect handmade or vintage pieces to highlight a collage, but today I had more than enough choices. With summer finally underway, beachy and nautical themed designs are everywhere. These are just 16 of the fun looks I found.
Before I show you my favorite Polyvore collages with today’s featured items, here are a few tutorials for creating Peter Pan collar necklaces to try!
