Dress Your Best: A Touch Of Feathers

June 29, 2011 • Accessories, Fashion Blog, Trends


When a trend such as feathers comes along, it’s usually only the fashion forward who embrace such a flamboyant style. Most will pass, fearing they’ll look like Big Bird or worse, and like they’re trying too hard to be in vogue.

But, what’s truly the #1 reason a woman skips out on fashion trends?

She feels it’s inappropriate for her age. I say don’t limit yourself! Trends are for everyone if done right! Trends can be the quintessential extra to add interest to your attire.

Lose your old mentality of “I can’t wear that!” and spread your fashion wings by embracing feathers!

20s:  By far the most popular way to wear this trend? Feather hair extensions. Sounds crazy right?! What I love about this look is that you can make it your own. Be it teeny tiny, bright n’ bold, or subtle feathers to match your hair color – these hair extension are fresh for summer!

30s:  The quickest trick to take your outfit to the next level? Fabulous jewelry! If you want to add a bit of boho glam to any look – try feather earrings. To make jeans and a tee more savvy – grace your neck with a standout piece such as a feather choker or pendent. This bold accessory looks best paired with a simple, sleek style.

50s +: Wonder how to rock this trend without looking like a wanna be? Investing in a beautiful feather clutch is a smart way to welcome this trend. Paired with a tailored suit, shift dress, or fabulous jeans and sweater, adding in a bold bag will certainly have people flocking your way.
