Forget minimalism. This season is characterised by busy prints, bold colours and beautifully exaggerated silhouettes.

With them comes the feather top, iterations of which have been worn by Kourtney Kardashian, Kendall Jenner and Lizzo.

If you’re feeling brave enough to follow in their footsteps, feather tops are an easy way to give an outfit instant oomph.

Whether you wear them with slip skirts or jeans, the beauty of them is that they make an instant impact without much thought about styling.

We can put their recent explosion in part down to the rise of Sleeper, the nightwear label that offers feather-trimmed PJs in an array of candy colours.

Many influencers agreed that their Sleeper sleepwear was too beautiful to be exclusively worn to bed and opted to dress them up with heels.

The high street has caught on, with brands like Zara, ASOS and Karen Millen launching sequin feather crop tops and shirts with feather cuffs.

16Arlington has an array of embellished pieces too, including dresses, jumpsuits, skirts and boas.

If you’re feeling inspired to embrace the trend this festive season, I’ve found 11 feather trimmed tops for you to choose from.
