Marabou is on the move! From Winter through Summer, adding tufts of feathers to clothing and accessories is hot hot hot right now! Everyday we have new customers who are purchasing marabou boas, trims and fringes to add to heels, flats, sandals, rings, necklaces, earrings & purses as well.

Take a look and find inspiration with the images below and there’s a cute tutorial linked as well! MARABOU FLATS RIHANNA

Celebrities like Rihanna have embraced this feathered shoe trend. Here she is wearing a pair of Simone Rocha leather mules adorned with feathers!

Rihanna x Stance also put out their very own line of marabou trimmed socks and hosiery this past holiday season.  If you can’t find stores now, they are super easy to DIY with feather boas from The Feather Place!Rhinna Marabou Stockings

We can also thank Rihanna for starting a new trend spun off from her furry Fenty Puma Slides. We’ve seen this idea transform from faux fur to using fluffy marabou boas to achieve this funky fun look.
