Fall 2013 Trend Report: Fashionable Feathers

You don't have to be dressing up as the Black Swan this coming to Fall to pull off these fabulous feather looks!

The first fabulously feathered look is a dramatic take on the upcoming trend. 

 This feathered beauty is a masterpiece of fashion and art. The skinny leather pants and textured top are a wonderful compliment to the drama of the feather coat. Having feathers not cover the entire coat takes this piece out of a costume look and into high fashion. There is nothing lacking in this stunning look and that is what makes it so stunning. As an artful piece of high fashion this is a big win in my book. 

However, if you're looking for a simple every day piece, this may not be the right choice for you. This look screams "look at me" and shouts fabulous trend setter from rooftops. So if you want to be the fashion queen walking down the street, this is the look for you. 

For those of you looking to maybe tone it down a little but still have the dramatic effect, the perfect look for you is to add a little feather accent to an already existing look

These show off the best of drama and every day appeal to those fashion leaders and trendsetters looking for the next big thing.

 This first look shows off the same drama with the black feathers but has a little less of the intense look as the leather and feather combination. The classic little black dress underneath the feathered sleeves shows off a more subtle ensemble.

This second look adds in a couple of my favorite upcoming trends- feathers, texture and bringing attention to the shoulders. This simple white dress has beautiful textured detail of it's own but is made even more beautiful with the addition of the feathers on the shoulders. This look has a simple feel to it but still carries that same dramatic appeal with the fabulous shoulder pieces. The white dress and light colored feathers give an almost angelic appeal to this look that will make any one stop and stare.

The last way to wear this trend is much more every day friendly if you're looking for an easy way to add in a little feather love to your wardrobe.

 The feathered mini: a simple way to show off the latest trend without being so dramatic. 

This piece is so versatile in look and texture that it can be dressed up or down and go from day to night easily. 

Adding this piece in is as simple as throwing it on with some tights, a cute t-shirt and a nice blazer or structured 

This example also shows off adding a little texture in a small way to make your outfit pop even more. 

Wearing a sweater with this feather mini can bring the trend into the winter months and the holidays.

Wearing the feather mini with a simple top is also a way to tone down the look if you want to add in this trend but don't want it to stand out too much. 


The darker feathers are another way to make this mini less dramatic and they can blend in well with the already existing pieces of your wardrobe.  

Now that you've seen my top 3 favorite ways to wear feathers next Fall, it's time to get your hands on some of these fabulous feathers!
