Autumn is well and truly here this week which can make lots of us feel a little bit glum, but in the words of Eric Idle ‘Always Look on the Bright Side’. Yes, the weather is pretty awful right now and the mornings and evenings seem darker day by day, but the positive side is that you can dig out your Autumn clothes and maybe even add to them.

A huge trend this Autumn / Winter is feathers and I for one am excited to find ways of introducing this trend into my wardrobe.

These Nicholas Kirkwood Boots are to die for and encapsulate the trend perfectly, the gorgeous feathers give a feeling of opulence and I can imagine them looking incredible with almost every possible outfit. However, at £896, they may be slightly outside of your budget, but never fear, we have found some high street alternatives which will mean you can be bang on trend without breaking the bank.

These gorgeous shoes from Faith (at Debenhams) are only £65 and are stunning and perfect for the party season. the glittery sole really brightens up a black shoe but with the gorgeous feather adornments on the side, I think the sole will not be the first thing that is noticed.

Wear with a glam black dress and nudes for maximum impact.

If you want to avoid Black, try these stunning Irregular Choice Shoes from Macoo which are only £49.99.

They have a fabulous vintage feel and the amount of detail will leave others thinking you have spent a lot more money on them than you really have.

Now if you aren’t keen on wearing feathers on your shoes, there are still other ways you can remain on trend. Take a look at our top three items below.

Flavia Feather Belt – Boohoo.com – Reduced to £4.00

Feather clutch – Karen Millen – £85.00

Feather Earrings – River Island – £13.00

If you are creative, you could also look at adding some feathers to pieces you already own. These pheasant feathers are stunning and are only £0.75 per pack of 8 from Love Craft.

Be daring and embrace the trend, if you manage to update current items, we would love to see your results so do let us know!
