Trend Alert! Would You Take Flight With a Feathered Skirt?
Calling all summer party-goers! Ditch your leather-banded pencil skirts and your silky wrap dresses — this season is all about feather-detailed pieces like flight-ready sexy miniskirts! Forget the flapper association, Dancing With The Stars costumes, and other tacky stigmas related to feathers — let these feather-detailed skirts change your mind about modern clubwear! Go “simple” with an embellished version of your typical straitlaced slim back skirt with a little black number courtesy of ADAM’s ostrich feather skirt, or mix it up with a printed version like this tiered Alice + Olivia leopard-printed feather skirt. After all, leopard is so hot right now! If you’re not afraid to mix textures and stand out, this J. Crew Naomi skirt packs plenty of sparkle with a little feather embellishment to keep things modern and interesting. But can you pull it off? What say you — are you feeling the feather embellishments, or is the look still a little too comstume-y for what the fashion world is ready for?
