This Fall Runway Trend Has Us Flying High

By Ray Lowe

It’s hard to keep track of the speed at which runway trends swoop by. With the rise of “see-now, buy-now” and street style diminishing their lifespan, it’s always fun when a back-of-mind style makes an appearance. Back in February, we saw the explosion of feather-adorned ready-to-wear pieces grace the runways of Miu Miu, Balenciaga, Prada, and more — and now’s the time to finally wear them.

Before the idea of ostentatious feathers put you off, there’s a little more subtlety this time around. Unlike a costume boa, the marabou feather look is fringe-y and is less of a statement-maker and more of an accessorizer. Whether they’re sprouting from hems or bunched into little pom-pom balls, this is the farthest you’ll get from an over-the-top, full-feathered coat (unless that’s totally your thing, of course). And if it’s not, well, here’s 12 pieces that’ll help give your outfit a little something.
