Ostrich feathers are making a strong showing on the Spring/Summer ’18 runways, and while we love how glamorous they can be, it takes guts to wear them. Here’s how you can wear feathers without looking like Big Bird
1 Ground your feathers with contrasting textures in similar colours.
2 Since you’ve got plenty of drama going on in your outfit, stick to a simple handbag.
3 Complement your feathers by picking other pieces in a similar colour family.
4 Choosing a feathered piece with duller shades helps to tone it down.
CHAIN OF COOL
Dainty gold necklaces can pack just as much punch when layered together. This is how you do it
