The Luxe Report: Fabulous Feathers

Hello, La Dolce Vita readers – it’s me (Rebecca from Young Sophisticates) again! This edition of the Luxe Report focuses on the fanciful feather trend!

When I saw a trio of fabulous women – designer Jenna Lyons, actress Uma Thurman and model Natalia Vodianova (pictured below)- in American Vogue wearing feathered eveningwear a few issues back, I knew this was one trend to watch.

Take a style cue from J. Crew creative director Jenna Lyons and incorporate feathers into an unexpectedly chic ensemble: a feathered skirt paired with a casual cashmere sweater.
Or, embrace your inner girly girl and wear a gorgeous gown with ostrich feathers – think Elie Saab, Marchesa or Pamella Roland‘s Fall 2011 collection.
SHOP THE LOOK (for your closet):

Don’t be shy about adding feathers to your home! Feather accessories are totally on trend in interior design right now. Even think about trying a fun feather print wallpaper…

  1. I received my West Elm feather wreaths a couple of weeks ago and I love them! The feathers aren’t applied on the back of the wreath, so I bought two and put them back to back. I will hang from a simple teal ribbon in my window at x-mas time. Buy one or two, you won’t be sorry!

  2. Thanks! So inspiring. Jenna is always right on target. A feather skirt would have to be for a stand-up event though, because I have a feeling they would look a bit worse for wear after sitting in them. Funny, though, birds always look fine after sitting in their feathers.
