Keep reading for a few stylish choices to spark your search for a feathered dress that you can wear this party season and the next…
All at the Hem
If you’re looking to dip your heel-clad toes into the feather trend but you’re wanting to keep the balance with your look, then a hemline graced with a subtle yet sublime float of feathers is the way to go. Choose a floor-length gown with delicate straps and a plunging V-neckline with a fitted bodice that skims down to a full length skirt. A soft train stitched with feathers is the perfect feminine touch to this beautiful piece, ideal for formal weddings or black tie events. Opt for a dress with a thigh-high leg split to accentuate the statement hem and give flashes of reflective metallic heels.
Feathers are the perfect way of accentuating your shoulders and your neckline. Use this voluminous yet airy touch to balance out the proportions of a deep carved V-neckline and fit-to-form dress flawlessly. You can play up the striking feel of your neckline with layered gold jewellery or keep your accessories spare and barely-there for a refined look that won’t overpower your frame. Make sure you tie your hair back to let your shoulder feathers shine all on their own.
A Fun and Flirty Mini
A sweet cropped shift silhouette is an ideal canvas for an array of tiered feathers. Choose a halter neckline in a sleeveless cut to balance out with the full, swinging shape of your shift dress. Opt for full impact here and look for a style covered in fun and flirtatious feathers to elevate the entire frame. This statement yet free-spirited style gives you an entire ensemble in a matter of moments, simply pull your hair into a ballerina bun, add pearl droplet earrings and finish with sleek heels or ballerina flats for a fun and youthful take on one of the season’s biggest trends.

A Chic Contrast
While feathers are undoubtedly playful and feminine, they also can act as a transformative contrast to more tough-luxe textures, too. Use a line of feathers to offset the more structured feel of a vegan leather bodycon dress for a stunning look that strikes the perfect balance between edge and elegance. Choose a style in a nuanced and neutral tone such as dusty rose to highlight the textured contrast of your chic mini dress.
