I love feathers. It’s their natural beauty; the compendium of a multitude of hues brought together in vibrant patterns governed by nature… all for attracting a mate. Just think about the grace and style of the peacock and you will see what I mean. Well, the feather trend has been creeping up on catwalks since A/W 09-10, and I think its about time we all took a flight of fancy!

One of the easiest ways to wear the feather trend is as part of headwear. With a choice between a cute array on dainty slides or skinny alice bands with shoots of feathers coming off, it doesn’t take a lot of daring to pull it off. Then there’s the next step, for the truly fashion obsessed: the headband.
