While feathers may not be treasured as dearly as the more popular animal-inspired embellishment, faux fur, this holiday season, feather details are having a serious moment. Platform pumps and strappy heels are getting fancied up with feathers of all kinds, from dramatic statement-making peacock to wispy bursts of color and texture that are sure to steal the show at your next holiday cocktail party. Who cares if you have nothing to wear – bust out your tried and true little black dress and slip on a pair of these festive feathered heels and you’ve got yourself a look-at-me new look that’s right on-trend, no matter how many times you’ve recycled the same dress! If a lofty price tag doesn’t make you cringe, you must take a look at these fierce suede heels from Chiara Ferragni, but if you’re on a more modest budget (with just the slightest wiggle room for splurging), these Kate Spade pom-pom heels have loads of character! Seeking a pop of color? Look no further than these Enzo Angiolini Thaddea ankle-strap pumps, or these sexy purple platforms from Nine West!
