The newest spring trend has been catapulted mostly thanks to the Copenhagen brand Ganni, whose crisp, wide and frilly collared shirts have been spotted on some of the biggest fashion influencers all over Instagram. The brand’s recent F/W 20 runway show made a solid case that the romantic collars are here to stay; as the show was filled with ruffled shirts layered over leather dresses, teamed over crisp shirts and paired with oversized striped blazers. Furthermore, at the Chanel Spring show signature tweed jackets and suits were worn over a parade of peeking exaggerated collars that finally solidify the fact that they’re one of the biggest trends of the year.
These ultra-feminine shirts are a sophisticated change from your everyday regular shirt and a glamours upgrade to all your sweaters and trousers. With a raffled oversized collar shirt in your repertoire, all it takes is a pair of high-volume trousers plus preppy mules and you’re ready to kick back at a Monday meeting.
If your lineup is missing an elegant piece that works for every day, don’t shy away from a statement piece. Here to bridge the gap between the too-formal former and the laid-back latter: pretty collars that sway feminine without being fussy and work with jeans or on-trend leather trousers.
The beauty of this long-sleeved shirt is that it works all year round. On cold winter mornings layer underneath your favorite sweater for a fashion-forward office-appropriate look and on sunny spring days simply slip on a pair of square toe sandals and your trustworthy jeans and let this statement collar work its magic.
The exaggerated collar and ruffled edges feel ultra-feminine, while the slim fit and buttoned cuffs make this piece sleek enough to integrate into your 9-5 repertoire.
For an edgy trans-seasonal look pair the poplin shirt with something simple and sleek like a polished leather skirt, ankle boots, and a trench.
Oversized collars were a key element on Miu Miu’s Resort 2020 runway, like the white floral-embroidered variation which adorns this black blouse. Tuck it into high-rise black shorts or black jeans teamed with black sandals to get a retro all-black look with the twist.
