YES YOU CAN: Go large on collars

Fashion director Shelly Vella shows you how.

Meet the Peter Pan collar, a picture-perfect statement of a neckline that works as beautifully on a dress as it does on a blouse or piece of knitwear. This season it comes in beaded, broderie, printed and even detachable versions, so you can swap styles depending on your mood. A detachable collar is also a great way to give a basic knit or a white T-shirt an instant twist.

The simplest way to work the trend? This statement white blouse, £69, from Baukjen
