After some of your reactions to the deconstructed classics post I put up earlier this week, I was a little leery about sharing today’s post on feathers because this is one trend that some of you might think is “for the birds”… But before you fly the coop, take a look at how these feathers can lift your style.
1. Feathers Add Texture
Without the hemline trim, this faux feather trim long vest would be pretty plain and boring. This bit of feather detailing around the bottom makes all the difference in taking this piece from average to awesome!
2. Try Feather Jewelry
Sometimes the best way to play a trend is in small doses that carry a big impact. This black and teal canvas feather pendant necklace is a striking piece that would look stunning with an open collar shirt or blouse. Just imagine what it can do for your white cotton button-up.
3. Feathers Add Drama
Exotic feathers turn very conservative shoes into dramatic feather flat smoking slippers.
4. Feathers = Glamour
Next time you’re invited to a special event, instead of running out and searching for that elusive ‘perfect dress,’ think about adding a piece like this feather shrug to your trusty Little Black Dress instead. Feathers add flare and a strong dose of glamour to everything you wear them with.
5. They’re Sexy
Because of their fine and fuzzy texture, feathers make the things they touch seem soft and sexy. These feather block heel sandals are a perfect example. Imagine what they would do for a pair of skinny jeans and a silky blouse? Vavava-Voom!
6. Feathers are Fun
A winter hat is pretty basic, but adding a feather pompom to this cable knit beanie instantly makes it (and you) fun.
7. Feathers are Feminine
Accessories say a lot about the wearer, and what better way to make a statement than with these very feminine feather statement earrings. The pattern, texture, and color are gorgeous and girly. They’re a perfect way to bring a playful touch to any outfit.
8. Feathers are Chic
This feather bolero jacket is that rare bird that makes anything you wear it with instantly and incredibly chic. Available in pink, charcoal, and black, this jacket will make anything – from jeans and a t-shirt to a little black dress – seem instantly sophisticated.
9. They Conjure up Retro Glamour
Old-school Hollywood glamour and charm come to mind when I look at these feathered slide sandals. I can almost picture Zsa Zsa Gabor wearing these while lounging on a chaise and sipping a martini!
What do you think? Are feathers for you, or are they for the birds?
