I have to say, I am a big fan of this trend. Although, I do believe caution should be exercised with this one. A bit of subtlety is a good thing! I am biased towards shorter dresses with beautiful feathery detailing, sweet head pieces and a feathery appearance on a shoe, bouquet or (if plumage makes you feel a bit birdlike) incorporated into your decor. I love how feathers can look quite formal and regal, or very fun and playful depending on how you choose to use them.
I have put together a slide show of some of my favourite feathery looks for your viewing pleasure.
See?! Truly beautiful in small doses.
P.S Did you notice I totally resisted saying ‘birds of a feather’ anywhere in this post? Soooo hard.
