Pan Collars

Pan collars proved to be one of the hottest trends during the cooler months, and it seems that it’s a look which is set to stick around right through the summer season. The good news is that it’s also one of the easiest ways to look chic and stylish. With this in mind, here is a quick guide to some of the best ways to wear a pan collar over the coming season.

Pan collared dresses are perhaps the most straightforward way of wearing this look. Fashionistas around the world have been spotted wearing short jersey dresses with contrasting pan collars, looking super chic whether they’re sitting in the office playing foxy or walking the red carpet at a a-list event. Whilst long-sleeved styles might have been replaced by sleeveless varieties in response to the warmer weather, a simple shift dress is still one of the most stylish ways to incorporate a pan collar into your wardrobe.

For a more traditional take on this trend, the pan collar blouse has also proved to be a popular look. These prim collars are given a more risqué edge by being teamed with sheer blouses, often alongside decorative cuffs. Pan collared blouses are also ideal for teaming with high-waisted skirts and shorts – another key trend which we are likely to see much more of over the coming season.

Of course, you can purchase the pan collar separately from the item of clothing itself, providing an easy way to add this trend to many of the items in your existing wardrobe. Intricate beaded or sequin pan collars look great when paired with play and simple t-shirts or cotton dresses and offer a temporary approach to the trend. Wear over items with lace detailing to create a fashion-forward look that is sure to turn heads.
