Feathers: How to Wear the Trend

This season, decadent feathers fluttered down the runways of major designers. Here's how you can wear the trend.

The feather trend of 2014 is not the single plume hanging from an ear lobe or hot glued to a headband. Many of the full-feather looks we saw on the runway from Alexander McQueen, Louis Vuitton, and Oscar de la Renta are eveningwear: Long, red-carpet worthy gowns and short whimsies reminiscent of The Great Gatsby.

The key to wearing the feather trend is to streamline your look: Pair plumes with pointy-toe heelsskinnies, or a short skirt so you don't get lost in the fluff. See how these bloggers wear the trend.

Anh from 9to5Chic pairs plumes with sleek textures and cuts. Take a note from her stylebook and let a simple color scheme and smart tailoring emphasize the feathers.

A full-on feather ensemble is fabulous, but if you're dabbling in the trend, try a feather accessory. Irina from A Portable Package wears a little feather on her strappy heels, and it works. Dress them up with an LBD or pair them with boyfriend jeans for a bit of flair. If you don't want to splurge on feather heels, try attaching a feather clip to your favorite pair.

Or go for more feathers like Blair from Atlantic-Pacific. She sports a feather skirt with a denim shirt and graphic sweater. Suprising and fun!
