Oversized prairie collars are the trend that’s set to take over your wardrobe

After months of only seeing your coworkers and pals on Zoom, shoving as much interest into the top half of your outfit has become the best way to express your style.

After all, if you’re not just wearing the comfiest sweatpants available on your bottom half, you’ve kind of been doing lockdown wrong.

That need for chest-up dressing is likely responsible for the new micro-trend that’s been popping up on runways, in designer collections, and across the high street: the oversized prairie collar.

Statement collars have already been established as a trend, but now it’s time to get more specific. The collar of the moment has to be the oversized prairie collar, describing those bib-like collars with a frilled edge for a cottagecore meets seventies chic effect.

Rocking the trend is satisfyingly simple.

You can buy a statement dress with the collar built in, or pick up a shirt with a prairie collar, to be layered under jumpers (with the collar then pulled out so it sits on top, of course) or worn alone.

Below we’ve rounded up some of the best prairie collar items available right now.
