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.
