Big Collars Are the Micro-Trend Dominating Spring 2020

We try not to miss a beat when it comes to trends here on Who What Wear—from the major trends infiltrating the market to the micro-trends creating a buzz among the fashion set. One of the latest micro-trends making some noise on the ‘gram right now is anything but small. Everywhere we turn, larger-than-life oversize collars are stealing the limelight (and our hearts).

We saw plenty of large sharply pointed ’70s collars on the runways over blazers, but today, we’re focusing on the frilly or lace-trimmed vintage-inspired collars exuding a Victorian vibe that fashion girls can’t seem to get enough of. The trend has been propelled mostly thanks to the Copenhagen brand Ganni, whose crisp, wide and frilly collared shirts have been spotted on some of the biggest fashion influencers. The brand’s recent F/W 20 runway show even further solidified that the romantic detail is here to stay. The trend was also spotted in abundance at Chanel’s Haute Couture S/S 20 show—making a major statement over their signature tweed jackets.

So how are we welcoming big collar energy into our wardrobes this season? Try a frilly wide-collar shirt over a crew-neck sweater, cardigan, or blazer for a fashion girl–approved look that will keep you warm through winter. Balance the statement top with a pair of simple jeans on the bottom for an of-the-moment look. Scroll below to see how fashion girls have been wearing the trend that’s suddenly dominating our feeds and shop the best on the market right now.
