The style of wearing the collar of a dress shirt flipped up, covering the neck.
Did you see that preppie kid? He thinks he's so cool, with his popped collar and sweater vest.

A way to wear your collar to protect the neck from the sun while playing sports such as tennis or golf. Worn by true preps and once the norm in the 80s when everyone wore preppy clothing but has since been rejected by society because obnoxious frat boys or 'gangsters' wear them.

Some true preps still wear them this way, while some preps find this tacky. Most others think that if you wear a popped collar, you are snobby and stuck up. But to really judge if a person is or not, you must converse with them and actually get to know the person.
Popped Collar with a chain and baggy pants=No
Popped Collar with Adidas Shelltops, polo tucked in the front showing off your stupid belt buckle=No
Popped Collar with loafers, chinos or khakis, and sometimes a sweatervest/cable-knit sweater=Yes

A fashion very popular in Europe, that consists of a rich person wearing a shirt (usually very expensive brands) and popping its collar, which makes them look extremely trendy and attractive to hot European chicks. This is hated on by most americans.
European chick: “Holy sh*t!! Look at that fly guy rollin up in his BMW and his popped collar on his La Martina shirt for 500 Euro. He is soo hot and rocks the style.“

American: “Look at that fag, who thinks he’s cool cuz he’s from Europe and pops his collar.“

What ghetto people used to do, What preps do now. Just another trend that will dye out eventually. One person said "Only ugly people are jealous that us preps pop our collars." Um no. Normal people enjoy not looking completley fucktarded.
Popping your collar is a great way to get the wrong kind of attention. Only wear a popped collar if you wanna get beat up and be a trend following whore.

popped collar. Started by Elvis, picked up by a ghetto elvis fan, then picked up by wannabe ghetto white boy living in the suburbs. To take advantage of this "trend" , brand companies write messeges below the color.
"Hey, that guy's shirt has 'I am a fag' written on his popped collar"
