10th Commandment: September 25

Sep 25, 2012

 

Peter Pan Collar Tee (J.CREW, $75), also available in a sweater for $90.

The truth is, I go back and forth on Peter Pan collars.  I started off thinking that they’re a bit immature, but then I see a stylish outfit utilizing one, and I change my mind.  I’ll let you ladies decide whether this style is right for you.  Check back at 1:00PM for Two Ways to wear this style.

Looking to spend a little less on this trend?  I like this navy sheer top from Bluefly and this jeweled shell for less than-$25.  I also kind of like this dress with a cutout detail near the collar.

Look for Less

    Belle, the link for the tee redirects to the J.Crew homepage and I cannot find it on their website for the life of me…

    Meagan – Per my cousin(works at JCrew), it's sold out. There are apparently 3-4 pieces from the new collection that she's been fielding a gazllion and one calls about, and this is one of them. I don't know if a restock is on the way or not.

    FYI I tried this on in the store and it is so, so, SO ITCHY. Seriously one of the most uncomfortable garments I have out on in awhile.

    I don't think Peter Pan collars are immature. Think Audrey Hepburn, for example. I'd have a difficult time making any case that her style was immature, quite to the contrary in my opinion. As with any fashion (trend or classic) it depends upon the article for wear and the person who wears it (I don't mean tall or short round or square) but a confident person has the ability to wear anything.

    Careful with Peter Pan collars — if you have a round face or are a little jowly, then this style is going to accentuate your roundness. I have an oval face but fairly meek cheekbones, so on me these collars just make me look puffy.

    The JCrew sweater version is on sale in stores for $49.99, plus an additional 25% off. Pentagon City had bunches last weekend. I was afraid it would look to girly, but it looked sophisticated in an Alexa Chung kind of way.

    But beware, the sweater version is hella itchy.

What I’m Really Buying on Prime Day

I will probably not open Instagram for the next two days. The Prime Day madness is just too thick. 90% of the items being promoted are things that I’ll throw away in two months (or less). But there are a handful of things I will use and are grateful to grab at a discount, here […]
