Ever since Harry Styles revitalized the extravagant boa trend, my fascination with feathers has only grown. I was always into Sleeper’s feather-trimmed PJs, but I can’t wear them all the time (as much as I’d like to).
I’m a little nervous to dig out my feather boa from my childhood dressing up box, but a feather bag? That, I can do.
Fluffy bags are definitely having their moment thanks to designers like The Attico, Loeffler Randall and Cult Gaia, who all have their own gorgeous variations available right now.
These little balls of fluff might seem scary to wear, but if you love them, wear them! They work best for an occasionwear outfit, like a wedding or night out.

Are feathers in style for 2023?
In a word, yes.
Feathers are being embraced on the cuffs of anything and everything, including dresses, PJs, suit jackets and trousers.
This trend has been going for a few years now, and while it may no longer be considered fashion forward, it’s certainly still in style.
What are the trending textures in 2023?
Spring fashion this year is full of exciting texture!
Designers have used a mix of feathers and tassels to add depth and sophistication to dresses, skirts, and handbags, while ruching is also popular, creating playful ripples and waves. 3D flowers and rosettes are another huge trend for the season, as spotted at Bottega Veneta, Halpern, Off-White and more.
What bags are in style now?
In 2023, expect to see plenty more of slouchy styles, Y2K-inspired, bucket shapes and basket bags.
