Once upon a time, I fell in love with a blazer. It had feathers (my very favorite trend that never runs its course), and adequately achieved a menswear-inspired look du jour – but with a feminine twist I actually wanted to pull off.
Yet as the story so often goes, the price tag on this Elizabeth & James blazer – $765 – offended my eyes, so I had to look away. Luckily, like a lot of Olsen-wear, the look was easily re-created – and with a more figure-flattering (for me, anyway) blazer and downsized, removable, plumage.
What You’ll Need:
- Feather trim, about $10/yd anywhere but Mood
- Blazer – any will do, my favorite is from H&M
- Velcro strip (black), $1 store
- optional: needle & thread
What to do:
You’ve probably figured it out by now.
Velcro + trim along hem = blazer! Sew it on if you’re looking for something more permanent, and live happily ever after.
