The very wise Bill Cunningham once said, "the best fashion show is definitely on the street. Always has been, and always will be," which was true once again this past Fashion Week. Just as exciting as it is being inside the venue, it is just as exciting (if not more at times) being outside. Especially since the trends we spotted six months before, during last fashion week in February, are finally making their debut on the streets. One thing that we spotted on some of our favorite street style stars was feathers. Yes, feathers are finally having their moment. But before you jump to any conclusions- no, these are not Big Bird feathers, and no, they do not look like the boas you used to play dress up with as a child (though we're totally here for that). Instead, these feathers are more delicate, and fringe like, seen on the hems, or cuffs of clothing, there to accentuate the look. Below, shop 25 of our favorite feather pieces that we can't wait to wear this season. Which one is your favorite?
Layered over a t-shirt or underneath a denim jacket, this top is sure to add some excitment to even the simplest outfit.
