DETAIL - All Black + Feathers

Season after season, I'm still feeling these ostrich feathers.  It's not just for the holidays and special occasion anymore!

You've seen me wear this jacket with the ostrich feather hem for the ump-teenth time, and rightly so, I get so many uses out of it, as I just remix it with different outfits. The feather detail around the hem just adds so much personality and pizzazz to a look, opposed to styling something with just a plain black blazer. Clothing with feathers on it use to be pretty much on special occasion pieces only, but not anymore, I've been seeing frocks with ostrich feather accents for a minute now. The brands just keep churning them out season after season, especially during the holidays - on blazers, tops and skirts etc -  I just love it!   I actually purchased my jacket by Romeo and Juliet Couture five years ago at Neiman's Last Call!  Needless to say I've gotten a lot of miles and usage out of it.  It's a cool way to use a piece which was generally thought of as 'formal' if you will, taken down a notch, while funkifying your look.  I styled the looks here with these boots for a more edgy, hip vibe. Symone has worn her top also with a pair of faux leather leggings and a zebra print pointy-toe pump which I thought was really cute, but I did something a little different for her for this post with a pencil skirt since I wanted to style the boots and show just how cute they are. I funkified it guys, and so should you lol!

Here above are additional ways I've worn/styled my feathered jacket.  I've also worn it with black skinny pants, a white graphic tee, red suede puma sneakers and a red beret cap.  Finally, I styled it using taupe color high-waisted riding pants from American Apparel, flat, tall suede riding boots and a plain white v-neck tee and big earrings! Whatever manner you choose, make it your own that works for your body-type and personality remembering that you're not limited to wearing pieces adorned with feathers for special occasions anymore!
