Street style ruffle collar

Ruffled collar shirts are still big news for winter – these are the best ones to shop now

Posted by for Fashion

Romantic ruffled collars are stealing the limelight on Zoom calls everywhere. 

Do you live in a uniform of white T-shirts, black jumpers and sweatshirts? There will always be space in your wardrobes for fail-safe basics, but lately we’ve been inspired to put the fun back into dressing and experiment with our tops – largely due to multiple video calls and meetings. First we fell in love with exaggerated puff sleeves, now there’s another particular detail that’s stealing the limelight: oversized collars. 

The style offers serious costume drama appeal, but translates into our everyday wardrobes without looking like we’re en route to a drama class. 

Big news last season, scandi brand Ganni has once again solidified the trend for this year by creating iterations of tops with the whimsical detail, as have many other designers and high street brands. 

Fashion stylist Pernille (below) brings the vintage detail up to date by layering a white-collared shirt over a classic black jumper. Of course a pair of luxe leather trousers and Bottega Veneta mules gives a whole new edge to the look. So how to incorporate it into our own wardrobes?

The way to wear it – without looking like you’re in fancy dress – is by keeping the rest of your look polished and fuss-free. Think tapered jeans, white ankle boots and an oversized blazer.

From white cotton styles that give the vintage edge to shirting-inspired iterations that look more sleek – these are the best ruffled collar shirts to shop now.
