She looks adorable.
This shirt is designed with a wedge collar made to stand up. You don’t have to worry about some oversized collar looking ridiculous. It’s popped, yes, but understated – just perfect for summertime.
I personally love this look, but is it a trend?
Hermes, J. Crew, and John Varvatos all featured popped collars in their Fall 2013 runway looks. Here’s just a few examples from J. Crew right now:
A popped collar has always incited fierce debate, with the harshest critiques aimed at men wearing them indoors. A stylist war ensued over at Esquire on the issue that hatched the best advice given on the subject so far:
“…a man cannot pop his collar on confidence alone — a sunny day is still necessary.”
–Fred Castleberry Unabashedly Prep
My advice? do more of a flopped collar (think: one side up one side down), make it look unintentional (akin to the messy bun) and start with a Johnnie-O wedge, and wear it during the day. You can’t mess that up.
Would you try a popped collar?
