What is a feather dress?

Had you heard about the feather dress trend?Today we will talk about this trend with feathers that has been attracting the attention of all fashionistas and designers around the world for some years. This 2022 is definitely the revival of the fashion of the 20s, and we can see this peculiar ornament everywhere and in garments such as coats, blouses, skirts, the stunning feathered dress, also accessories such as bags and hats. Are you ready to learn about this topic?


Feathers have been present since the beginning of the history of fashion, but it was not until the 20s that it had a golden age, the crazy 20s or the jazz age, was a time full of elegance that revolutionized the style of the modern woman. During that time younger women sought freedom and showed it through their way of dressing, in this period they began to develop in other areas of art and culture, an icon of this generation of flapper girls was Zelda Fitzgerald.

Flapper girls were known for challenging the way they dressed and thought, they went out dancing and attended parties where the new musical current sounded: jazz. These girls innovated a style that is still used to this day, they wore slightly shorter garments and the silhouette was looser, the hair was short, they wore small but very flirtatious heels, they combined the coats with beautiful feather dresses in fabrics such as satin and cotton.

The feathered dress has become a new classic that is currently worn in street style and we have seen it in events such as the MET Gala and collections of haute couture firms such as Moschino and Prada. Feathers have been one of the most sophisticated ornaments ideal to wear to important events and that will give a totally different twist to your look,when wearing a feathered dress you will have a mysterious and totally vintage touch. Feather dresses can be found in different materials such as cashmere, alpaca and satin mainly. You can find it in mini, midi and maxi versions, also in vibrant colors such as orange, yellow and red.

Remember the Kyle Jenner dress she wore to the 2019 MET Gala? You can look for similar colors or if you prefer a classic in white like the model worn by Mexican actress Eiza González, you will have that glamorous touch of Hollywood. Feather dresses are considered haute couture pieces so their price is a bit high due to the artisanal process of their manufacture.

Cocktail party: If you will be attending a cocktail party in the afternoon, you can opt for a feather dress but if the dress code is not so strict you can have more freedom when creating your outfit, you can use riskier colors such as fuchsia or emerald green.

Formal dinners: With the feather dress you will always look spectacular and you can combine it with other accessories such as earrings and rings, if you want to give shine to your outfit I recommend using earrings with crystals.

For a gala: Galas are events that have a fairly specific dress code and always ask you to attend with a long dress, this is where you should wear a feather dress to achieve an elegant look, you can use a small bag to carry your most basic accessories with you. Remember that lipstick and powder are always essential to renew your makeup!
