Birds of a feather

The Little Magpie

No longer the reserve of boas on a hen night, feathers are the texture of the season.

From Proenza Schouler to Dries Van Noten, these little bits of fluff have been adding some much needed detail to the looks for Spring, being incorporated from every look, from romantic to grunge

Fall in love with feathers

Perhaps the most obvious way to wear feathers is in a romantic way. The texture looks so touchable that you’ll be fighting the suitors off! Worn in dreamy pastel colours, you’ll look like an ethereal beauty as you float along

Black swan

Although it’s tempting to keep things light as a feather, dying them black can add wonders to an outfit. To avoid looking like a crow, keep the feathered aspect to details and highlights, such as along the hem of cocktail dresses, or on the shoulders

Keep it to a minimum

Like the trend but not willing to walk around feeling like Big Bird? Try adding subtle accessories, whether it’s a feather print, or just a pair of earrings. We love these cute ankle boots with the feathered panel – just the right touch to make your shoes unique, but not so much that it’s fancy dress
