How To Wear Feather Skirts

Feathers are a trend that have taken flight in many different incarnations over the last several seasons– as boho chic earrings, luxe vests and now in the form of whimsical and flirty skirts. With an inherently youthful charm, it’s important to pair with structured classics to avoid the trap of looking doll like.

A feather skirt may seem like an unlikely choice for day wear, but Adam‘s pairing of casual pullover and socks is a clever combo that dresses down the evening vibe of feathers. We’d add a pair of opaque tights to the mix for further informality and as an extra cozy layer to protect against chilly days.

Twilight actress Christian Serratos’ Gabriela Cadena dress does double duty on the trends with a feather skirt and embellished shoulders. While a feather and embellishment combo may easily veer into Vegas costume territory, a sombre black palette and zero jewellery kept the look simple and beautiful.

Black is your easiest choice for balancing the playful nature of feather but we can’t resist the vibrant and saturated colours at Yves Saint Laurent. Structure and classic silhouette allow you to have fun with striking hues and maintain flattering sophistication.
