Once in a while, a trend appears on the runway, trickles down to your local mall, and then lodges itself firmly inside your brain. Now Trending is our weekly roundup of where to buy that look that’s been haunting you.
Feathers are a fun trend but most people don’t automatically think they can incorporate it into their closet. But leave it to Prada to make it seem super desirable. The embellishment first popped up at the Spring 2017 show, where it added a festive touch to sleeves or on shoes. Featuring clashing ‘70s-inspired prints, Miuccia doubled down on feathers, with 38 out of the 49 looks covered in them and even carried over styles into the Fall 2017 show. That’s a good sign that it’s a trend that’s going to stay around for a while.
So how do you make it your own? In doses. Try a shirt with a feathery trim that can be worn with high-waisted black slacks or jeans. If you’re looking for something more subtle, earrings are the way to go. Or perhaps you want an unusual mini bag that combines chains and feathers? Scroll ahead for ideas on how to get in on the trend at every price point.
