Many women have come to us and asked how to wear an ostrich feather skirt. They say they simply adore the look of an ostrich feather skirt, but are unsure of how to style it. At Mode & Affaire we believe feathers make an every day outfit a refined statement ensemble. There is something so frivolously fun about them. We see feathers on the catwalk, covering dresses, skirts and coats, from soft feminine colours to bold decorations. Plumes dancing from hemlines and wispy tendrils floating delicately from shoulders, feathers that go hand in hand with a playful soul ready for an after hours soiree. Feather skirts are trending on the streets of fashion festivals all over the globe.
"So how do I wear an ostrich feather skirt?"
We get this question all the time. The fabulous thing about these skirts is that you can dress it up or dress it down and still feel glamorous. Below are three styled“looks”you can easily achieve with the feather skirt, which show just how versatile this piece can be!
To dress down the skirt for a day of school pick ups, coffee dates and maybe a cheeky afternoon champagne, team the piece with a vintage band T-shirt and lace-ups. These items can be found in most wardrobes and are the perfect way to create that trendy-yet-casual look.
For a high tea, winter soirée, or simply to recreate the impeccable and classic look of Charlotte York (from Sex in the City), focus on the voluminous texture of the skirt. Pair it with a cashmere sweater and simple heels. This style will stand the test of time!
Want that touch of playfulness? Team the skirt with a blazer. Pop the collar for an added iconic look. The structure of the blazer alongside the movement of feathers is such an underrated way of showing the best of both!
