5 Ways To Wear Spring’s Feathered Shoes Trend

One of the biggest trends for spring is feathered shoes. It was a look we saw across the market, from runway labels to fast-fashion brands. Of course, Prada’s spring ’17 collection comes to mind, where Miuccia Prada ignited the trend with an entire lineup of feathered trims on jackets, pants and strappy sandals.

But are feathers actually wearable for every day? All signs point to yes. From the office to happy hour, see below five easy ways to wear the trend.

1. Wear it on a beach getaway
A feathered slide adds a whimsical touch to your poolside look. We love this colored version by Brother Vellies. Amp up the bohemian aesthetic with a tasseled dress, raffia bag and playful jewelry.
