Whatever you buy in the the next couple of months, make sure there’s feathers on it
30th Jun 2019
Feathers are the most on-trend detail for AW19. Dries Van Noten, Erdem, Balmain, Loewe, Marc Jacobs and Peter Pilotto to name but a few, all embraced the frivolity and texture of plumes in their AW19 collections. Adding a touch of feathered fun to your wardrobe is a great way of nodding to the the AW19 collections and showing a subtle style savviness. Here are some of my favourite buys right now…
A friend of mine has this feather cuff top and it looks stunning on her. It’s feminine but unfussy so it can be worn over denims for day or glammed up for evening with a pair of strappy heels. I’m tempted to pop this is into my shopping basket right now.

These pretty gold and cream feathered earrings offer a very elegant option for those who fear feathers could look a bit clownish. They’re beautifully subtle and will work for any occasion.

Danish brand Stine Goya is very much an of-the-moment label, but one that looks likely to remain a favourite with customers who are drawn to its modern femininity. Available in Harvey Nichols Dublin and Gallery 9 in Naas, this particular Stine Goya piece is exclusive to net-a-porter.com. What a pretty way to embrace the feathered trend? This piece will work perfectly during what looks likely to be an unpredictable summer as well as right through to Christmas.

It doesn’t get more playful than these feather-trim sandals. They’re not for everyone admittedly, but they’ll certainly add a point of difference to your outfit. I love the combination of mustard and purple.
Flat sandals with feather trim, €49.95 at Zara
I love this simple T-shirt with bold yellow trim. Yellow is a key colour for AW19, so you’re ticking two trend boxes with one item here. It’s a pricey piece, but it’s very cool.
