Fash­ion­istas, it’s time to ruf­fle some feath­ers this sea­son

Ri­hanna's ‘Va­le­rian' pro­mo­tional tour wardrobe has been set­ting the red car­pet alight for days now, but it was her re­cent ap­pear­ance in a feath­ered Prada con­coc­tion that re­ally got tongues wag­ging.

The pop star donned a can­dyfloss pink out­fit for the Paris pre­miere of her new movie ear­lier this week, with the look com­pris­ing a bead-fringed bralette and tight pen­cil skirt adorned with lay­ers of pink and red feath­ers. Be­ing RiRi, she used her plumes to max­i­mum ad­van­tage, shim­my­ing and shak­ing all over so­cial me­dia and gen­er­ally look­ing like she was hav­ing a ball. And as it turns out, feath­ers might grow into the funnest mi­cro trend of 2017.

It started back in Fe­bru­ary at the Os­cars, where nom­i­nee Oc­tavia Spencer daz­zled in a pearly grey March­esa cre­ation that fea­tured a full feath­ered skirt. Sofia Boutella was no less re­splen­dent in a se­quinned Chanel dress that cut off mid­calf to re­veal a plush downy hem­line, and The best way to in­ject a dose of feath­ery glam­our into your sum­mer wardrobe is to in­vest in some funky ac­ces­sories. A colour­ful purse such as the Gucci Diony­sus Medium Par­rot Shoul­der Bag is a bold nod to the trend, as are the tick­lish-look­ing Miu Miu Swarovski Crys­tal and Feather-Em­bel­lished Slides. If you pre­fer some­thing even more sub­tle then try out a pair of plumed ear­rings for a flirty sum­mer look, such as Os­car de la Renta's Marabou Feather Ear­rings, or Panacea's Feather Shoul­der Duster Ear­rings. And in terms of ap­parel, Prada's Feather-Trimmed Crin­kled SilkChif­fon Camisole and Open­ing Cer­e­mony's Dip Dye Cropped Feather Tee make the trend about as wear­able as pos­si­ble.

If you be­lieve in sub­tlety, road-test the trend with feath­ered denim
