Fashion has literally gone to the birds this fall. Dozens of designers sent feathers down their Fall 2011 runways, creating a floating, carefree and luxurious feeling. That translates to pieces that are fresh and festive for a party (like Charlize Theron and Eva Longoria's looks) or an elegant accent on a gown (similar to Beyonce's). From dresses to skirts to accessories, feathers, including the various implementations below, are must-buys for fall.
Feathers are the new fringe; keep accessories minimal with a dress like this one from Guess ($128) so your look don't compete with itself.
Skirt the Issue
Add balance to this brazen Zara skirt ($129) with an unexpected top (a dark denim jacket or leather bomber, a white button-up blouse).
If you're not comfortable going with the proverbial flock, accent your wardrobe with a subtler example of this trend, such as this flirty feather clutch
