Ruffle Your Feathers: 6 Ways To Try Out The Voluminous Fall 2012 Trend
October 12, 2012
For the past few weeks, we’ve been up in arms about this season’s most wearable fashion trends like colored leather, ox blood accessories and all-baroque-everything, but we seem to have forgotten one of fall’s soon-to-be MVPs: feathers. I know, I know, feathers caught a bad rep because they can tend to look tacky and cheap, but this season, designers really stepped up their game with everything from marabou feather-detailed heels to ostrich skirts and dresses.
But before you dive head first into the trend, remember that one gust of wind will ruffle your feathers and add some volume à la last season’s peplum craze. To offset the seemingly weightless bulk, be sure to pair it with other form-fitting pieces. For instance, if you opt for a feather-fringed skirt, pair it with a tight camisole or blouse and a tailored blazer. If you go for a full-feathered dress, make sure your accessories are boxy with straight, clean lines.
