5 Peter Pan collared shirts for your next ‘jeans and a nice top’ restaurant date

With restaurant dates our only chance to dress up, we need nice tops for our jeans. Here are five perfect big collared shirts you can shop now


We all know how it goes.

Your friend texts: “What you wearing tonight?”

Your reply: “I don’t know, jeans a nice top probably. You?”

But dear reader, the nice top is never found.

However, never fear because Peter Pan collars are here. Like the character himself, these shirts are magic. They provide drama to an outfit without ever completely overwhelming a silhouette. This means if you look at billowing shapes with fear, a big collared shirt is a lovely way to experiment.

Pair with those jeans for restaurant dates, midi skirts for autumnal days, and wide-leg pants for office-appropriate style.

Our top five picks are below and I can confirm the H&M leopard print vision is a wonderful fit.
