I saw feather headbands at Urban Outfitters this Fall and I was like ... Eh, nice try. I think I almost tried one on, but it just seemed so pointless. When would I ever wear a feather headband?
But now that summer is here, it somehow makes sense. I'm not sure it's possible to rock something as whimsical (if I may use that stupid word) as a feather headband unless you are wearing only a white tee and jean shorts, or are attending Coachella, or better yet- you are wearing white tee-jean shorts-at Coachella.
Maybe you can make an exception and wear it with an excessively long dress, if you are the hostess of some kind of party in a field. And as for the wings ... there's always next Halloween.
Anyway, not surprisingly there are some really wearable ideas on Etsy:

And you must check out Littledoe, for the lookbook alone! Also, Pluma make some amazing headbands.
