Trend Alert: FEATHERS!

As October begins, my thoughts drift towards cool weather events, and how to dress for them. Fall is FULL of special occasions and holidays. This season one particularly creative trend we are seeing is the use of feathers on handbags, shoes, and clothes. It creates a really optimistic, modern vibe, and is an easy way to feel current, glam and super stylish. An otherwise classic pencil skirt goes to another level when trimmed in fur. Isn't this skirt to die for?

One important piece of advice: when you are wearing something with feathers, keep the rest of your outfit understated to avoid looking like you are a Las Vegas showgirl!

What about a clutch or bag with feathers? You can see how carrying this with a little black dress takes the look from simple to dramatic with one accessory!  Dressing up goes to another level with feathered sandals to add glamour and elegance...very flirty and feminine.

These shoes from Steve Madden and Prada are perfect examples of the feathered trend, and you will see feathers on casual mules and slides as well as the dressier options.

Be out the lookout-you can expect to be seeing this trend in the days and nights ahead, especially over the holidays! Just imagine; you are running late to a cocktail party. What to do? Just throw on your black pants and silk blouse, or little black dress and add something with FEATHERS, and YOU ARE READY TO SHINE...a showstopper!

 Would you try this trend? We want to know!

Until next week,
