Look your best from the shoulders up.

Scroll through any fashion savant’s Instagram or click through fashion week street-style images, and you’re bound to spot at least a few oversized collars. They’ve been a favorite among the fashion crowd for a few seasons now. That fire was initially sparked by the street-style-favorite brand Ganni, who has been offering an affordable cotton rendition likely peppered throughout your Instagram feed. But it was Miu Miu’s resort ’20 collection that set the trend ablaze, where models sauntered out in Chelsea collars reminiscent of the ’60s and ’70s. For spring, the trend is still burning strong and was seen on many runways. Jonathan Anderson at Loewe favored a sharp, exaggerated version of the disco collar, while CHANEL opted for a more romantic style.

The look is also favored by members of the fashion elite, specifically girls with a fondness for the sartorially dynamic, like Pernille Teisback and Leandra Medine Cohen. A shirt with an eye-catching collar can be worn on its own or easily layered under a sweater or jacket. There are even removable collars available for purchase that you can attach to just about anything.

The supersized collar is one of the few trends that we may still be able to find merit in during our current home dwelling. Since our new medium of communication is Facetime, the only portion of our body seen by the general public these days is from the shoulders up. So a collar just might make the cut—something to wear for your next Zoom meeting, perhaps?
