Nothing says opulence the way feathers do. Often treading the line between costume and ready to wear, even a simple feather trim can turn any dress into an extravagant piece. Fall collections pushed the envelope featuring full feather dresses as seen in Celine collection or feather skirts as seen in Givenchy; there were feathers to fit all taste and comfort levels.
Feathers are sophisticated, feminine and coquettish; while still remaining lighthearted and playful. Popularized during silent the film era, feathers give a classic Hollywood glamor to any outfit. Possibly the best thing about feathers, a little goes a long way. No need to wear a bird on your head a la Carrie Bradshaw, the lightest feather accent can make help you make a big statement this holiday season.
With so many options to choose from, it will not be difficult to find something that fits your personality (and budget). Whether you’re wearing feather earrings to Sunday brunch, jazzing up a simple up-do with a feather headband or staying warm on New Years eve with a feather cape, you can’t go wrong.
