Birds of a Feather
Back in February at the fall/winter 2008 collections, feathers featured prominently on the catwalk. Monique Lhuillier showed a lovely set of feathery evening gowns, and Ralph Lauren used feathers in his skirt trims. Feathers also made an appearance at Betsey Johnson, Bill Blass, Derek Lam, Badgley Mischka, and J.Mendel. Now that fall is finally here, it’s time to pull on your feathers. Here a few pieces that take the trend from runway to rack.
This skirt is rich with the jewel tones of a peacock’s feathers. Combine it with light colors (as shown) for an elegant daytime look or throw in some black to formalize it for an evening event.
Swing around in the flair of this look! The feather trim on the bottom of this dress is ever so subtle and adds just the right amount of volume.
A feather cape is a beautiful way to add texture to your look and is the perfect finish to a stylish ensemble.
Many of us forget that the hair is a great place to accessorize an outfit. So why not try a feather barrette? It’s ultra chic and is an excuse to throw your hair up in a sexy do!
