The fashionable streets of New York, London, Milan, and Paris prove it—there’s a new way to build up your street style cred. The trend in question? Flourishes of wispy feathers. You’ve seen the same plumes on red carpet gowns for years, but now the trend has taken on a real-life spin that can easily be worked into all your favorite office and weekend ensembles. As some of our favorite street style stars prove, feathers are a light and airy way to add flair to your springtime look.
At first, it might seem like feathery pieces are something that only the likes of Carrie Bradshaw could pull off, but these lighthearted styles are easier to adopt than you think. The key is all about mixing and matching with more relaxed styles. Try balancing a feather-trimmed skirt with a blazer or cropped jacket. Or, invest in some feather-clad sandals to let every step you take make a statement. Either way, we promise you won’t regret it.
