The Unusual 

Ditch tops with feather-trimmed collars to avoid looking old and outdated. Instead choose ensembles with unexpected feather trimmings like the edge of the sleeves or a skirt’s hemline for a modern take.

As with every outfit, proportion is key. Don’t go overboard with your plumage, unless you are wearing an evening gown—keep the feathers minimal during the day.
