Trends come and go but a few stay back as classics. In a variety of those classics, a trend that caught our eye was the feather trend. One thing that the sartorial plumage proves is when the 2 F’s—fashion and feathers come together, there is no looking at age, occasion or the amount! Whether you choose dainty hints or you choose to be being drenched in them, feathers will instantly make you the centre of attention. And in the best way possible, might I add!
Glitzy affairs, intimate gatherings or a quiet night out, feathers will guarantee a stylish uplift in your ante. Now, how you add that oomph depends on how you make them work for you. In need of some inspiration on how to swirl in quills post quarantine? Look no further than the beloved divas of our glamorous Bollywood. In a plethora of styles and silhouettes, they have merged the age-old classic feather with a variety of prints, colours, embroideries and more.
From Deepika Padukone, Priyanka Chopra Jonas to Janhavi Kapoor and Ananya Panday, here’s how fashion’s favourites incorporated feathers in their ensembles:
Dressed in Roksanda and The Row, this all-white outfit spares no boss-lady vibe while still retaining the fun factor. Thanks to the feathery accents making a peek on the collar.
In the mood for something playful? Ananya’s Clio Peppiatt number stylishly mixes quirky prints with a feathered hemline, instantly making it a club-ready ensemble.
Nothing quite like a pair of well-fitted trousers with an attached trail and a feather-loaded blouse to stand out in the crowd. Anushka Sharma looking hella chic in Atsu couture.
Priyanka Chopra Jonas
Got a lavish dinner on the calendar or a black-tie event to attend? Let Priyanka’s risqué, Ralph & Russo dress covered in feather panels serve as your sartorial inspiration.
Take cues from Malaika on how to take the right kind of risks with the plumage trend. Mixing 2 OTT elements: sequins and feathers, the actor’s Yolancris number is one for the books.
Absolutely love how Kriti adds a surprise element with a feathered hemline on the pallu in her colourful Manish Malhotra saree.
Nothing like a feather shower when you have a red carpet event coming up, noh? Grabbing all the right kinds of attention, Bhumi looks uber-chic in her gown from Atelier Zuhra.
Sonam Kapoor Ahuja
The ultimate Bollywood queen when it comes to fashion. Sonam’s off-white Rami Kadi gown features a scatter of feathers on the neckline and the gradual progression at the hem. Her monochromatic number blending shimmer and feathers makes up for a major fashion moment!
Keeping it simple yet fun, Kriti’s girl-next-door outfit from Deme By Gabriella is apt for when you have a girls night out on your calendar. The subtlety of the knotted shirt and the overloaded feather skirt is a perfect balance between glam and casual. Don’t you think?
I particularly love how Deepika and Anushka played with the feather trend. And I have definitely learned a lesson or two on how to style it. What about you? Whose outfit did you like the most? Tell us in the comments below!
