This holiday season saw plenty of festive outfits — but Jennifer Lopez’s non-traditional take was a true standout.
Instead of opting for the typical choices of red, green, and tartan, the Marry Me actress celebrated in a bright teal satin dress printed with deep burgundy bows — and the cherry on top was the statement collar. The bold, pointed detail featured a single red flower embroidered on either side and gave the look a fun dash of sophistication and flair.
Lopez styled the ensemble with red pumps, flower-shaped earrings, and a bold red lip, which she captured in a selfie posted to Instagram. In another shot, she posed next to her Christmas tree, her dress perfectly matching its ornaments — it’s like she planned it or something!
The dress’ wrap ruffle and cuffed sleeves are nothing short of eye-catching, but it really is the collar here that makes the ‘fit. Plus, other celebs have embraced the trend, too. Earlier in the year, Hilary Duff wore a playful gingham dress with a Peter Pan collar, and Kate Middleton paid homage to her late mother-in-law, Princess Diana, by baking in a blouse upgraded by an oversized ruffle collar. Most recently, Netflix’s Wednesday reminded us of the statement collar’s power with Wednesday Addams’ timeless, slightly preppy uniforms.
So if you’re looking to add a collared top or dress to your closet, check out the options we rounded up inspired by J.Lo, starting at $22.

If you’re not really in the market for a new dress, go for a collared sweater instead. This on-sale option from Amazon definitely looks like something the one and only Wednesday Addams would wear, as the long sleeve pullover sweatshirt comes in black and has a white Peter Pan collar, ribbed hem, and wavy cuff detailing. This sweater has a looser fit and is meant to be hand-washed only, according to the brand. And if you’re looking to add a bit more color to your wardrobe, the sweater is available in pink, wine, light blue, and gray, too.
Shoppers have highlighted the top’s warmth and quality, and one reviewer said they “received so many compliments” when they wore it, too.
