How to wear feathers

Some trends that look fantastic on the runway may seem difficult to pull off in everyday life. One such fad is feathers - while this may seem nearly impossible to embrace without appearing too flamboyant, InStyle fashion director Cindy Weber Cleary swears it's possible, and easy!

"Feathers are glamorous in a lighthearted way. Think of them as a soft, chic alternative to the usual...sparkles," she writes. "They are unabashedly feminine - and you don't need a lot of them to make a statement."

Instead of wearing a feather-covered piece, select a semi-formal dress that boasts a few strategically placed plumes for embellishment, such as at the shoulder or by the hemline. You can also incorporate this trend into your accessories. Enhance your little black dress with a headband, purse or pair of heels adorned with feathers.

If you decide to embrace this trend, leave the rest of your get-up as simple as possible.

"Say no to snakeskin, ostrich-skin and lizard-skin accessories when wearing feathers," Weber Cleary advises in the news source.

Trust us, feathers aren't just for the birds. Adding a few to your ensemble can create a flirty and charming look with just a touch of whimsy.
