Light As A Feather

My last blog post was about flower accessories. This article is going to be about accessories as well; only this time, it's about feather accessories. The feather accessories I will be featuring include headbands with feathers attached, feather hair clips, and feather jewelry. In addition to accessories, I will also display clothing with feather prints. Feathers happen to fit in with many of this seasons popular looks. These styles include the flapper girl look, the modern hippie look, and the boho-chic look; keep reading to find out how to incorporate these trendy styles with the feathered fashion featured below.

To rock a feather printed dress, pair it with some gladiator sandals and bangle bracelets. If you're sporting a feather printed top, wear it with some distressed capris and sneakers. To wear a feather printed swimsuit on the beach, pair it with some ripped bermuda shorts, flip flops, sunglasses, and a tote bag. A tote with feather prints would be great to carry if you're heading out to the beach, pool, or, gym. The feather printed totes will also come in handy for those of you who are taking classes this Summer and need a bag to carry your books in. If you want to wear a feather printed scarf, pair it with a tank top, a denim mini skirt, and some ballet flats.
