Flight of Fancy: Feather-Adorned Pieces Are the New Must-Have Embellishment

The leitmotif of the most to-die-for Fall 2013 collections? Feathers. Gorgeous, delicate, and feminine wisps were seen all over the Dries Van Noten runway; layers of Ostrich provided movement for menswear coats at Louis Vuitton; Hakaan added feathers to peplums; Gucci used (of course) bigger, bolder wing feathers on necks, arms and chests to suggest a woman so glamorous she can hardly keep herself from floating above so many pedestrian lives below. As gorgeous as these looks are, it would be a mistake to think that feather fancy is meant only for the runway.

Retailers have been offering their own versions of these delightful and eye-catching frocks, whether it be on a simple black cardigan, a statement necklace, a night-out bag or the type of mini skirt you'll want to wear all night long, and be hard pressed to take off when you get home — it's that perfect mix of sexy, flirty and femme.

Challenge yourself to add in a feather accent or an entirely feather-adorned piece into your look this fall and winter, you won't be sorry. Check out our ultimate feather inspo guide below.
