This article talks you through how to attach bands to a wing collar shirt or a tunic shirt with a wing collar attached.

The first thing to do is to take your bands and place them centrally between the two wings of your wing collar, and then you take the two strings of your bands and you cross them over the back of your wing collar and then pull them underneath the two flaps of your bands, and if they're long enough you tie them in a bow.
