Say Hello To The Latest Fashion Trend, The Big Collar Energy
There’s only one rule—go big or go home
The nature of fashion can be *really* funny, to say the least. One moment we saw handbags shrinking in proportions to literally just fit in a lip balm and another we found ourselves pumping volume into our sleeves. Let us introduce you to the newest kid on the fashion block: statement, oversized collars.
The origin of oversized collars goes way back to Royalty. It was first seen on Princess Diana, who was an ardent enthusiast of the little detail. From peter pans, pointed flats, ruffs, sailors, ties to Chelsea collars, Lady Di aced them all. And following her sartorial sensibilities was the Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton who imbibed the trend with equal panache.
A little bit pilgrim. A little bit Victorian. But a whole lot of cute. The statement, oversized collars are here to stay. When it comes to the runway and red carpets, fashion influencers and celebrities have veered towards the big collar energy. From luxury fashion houses like Ganni and Chanel to celebs like Tilda Swinton at the 77th Venice International Film Festival, everyone is channelling the energy right about now.
