I am a huge fan of the feathered friend. Both in my decor and on my accessories. The all too popular feathered headband is such a fun look. The ultra feminine, 1920s vibe is what appeals to me most. It’s a great way to dress up your day wear and an even better way to add a bit of glam to your nighttime look.
A few tips too wearing these feathered pieces:
1) Larger feathered headbands should be worn in the evening
2) Be sure the feathers are flush with your hair. The puffy pieces tend to resemble small hats. This is fine IF that’s what you’re going for but this is best for more formal occassions (great for weddings!)
3) Find colors that contrast well with your hair color. For example, blondes will look better with brown, greens or blues where darker hair might do best with gem tones.
Not sure where to find one? Well, walk into a mall and look around – you can’t miss them! I certainly have some favorites…
Galvin-ized Headwear has some great finds. These pretty shops is nestled in the South End and has some beautiful feathered headpieces.
Urban Outfitters also has some pretty, more affordable options.
Forever 21 sports even MORE affordable options (just know that these might be good for one wear)
Etsy – I swear I will go at least one week without pointing you to this fantastic site…I just don’t know when that will be!
Don’t fear the feather – have fun with it!
