Fashion Forward Feathers

Proenza Schouler show, Fall 2013 Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, New York, America - 13 Feb 2013. Proenza Schouler teamed two trends - feathers and monochrome.

The trend for feathers is still going strong as fashion has moved from fall in to winter.

The romantic and dreamy look feathers give to any outfit adds a touch of decadence to fashion this season.

It’s also the perfect trend to work both day and night, and can be worn straight from the office to evening arrangements.

“Feathers offer a feminine, flighty approach to embellishment. Fun by day – match a feathered skirt with a slouchy jumper – or bring soft glamour to cocktail dressing by night,” explained Vogue deputy editor Emily Sheffield.

An oversized, glitzy sweatshirt was styled with a knee-length shaggy feather skirt and while it might not be the easiest look to pull off, it couldn’t be more on-trend.

Jason Wu showed off feathery creations at the fashion house’s Fall/Winter 13 catwalk shows.

Teaming full white feathered skirts with knitted jumpers, accessories were kept minimal so the flurry of feathers stayed as the main focus.

Oscar de la Renta went for 1920′s decadence with a feathered take on a flapper dress. Using soft colours teamed with heavy eye make-up, the designs ensured maximum impact as they were walked down the runway.

Julien Macdonald produced a fun take on the feather trend with short fluffy mini dresses. Models wore the flirty creations with heeled boots, for an edgy take on the romantic trend.

Erdem used feathers in a more dark and gothic manner, adding a subdued colour palette to the wing-like style. A mid-length black dress, teamed with a matching jacket used feathers to create a bird-like feel to the outfit.

Gucci opted for colour in their take on this trend and purple, orange and red feathers to make a fluffy statement.
