Wednesday Wish List: The owl trend

Woo knew that owls would be such a big trend on the high street?! Let's face it, they aren't the cutest or most obvious animal to like, unless you're Michael from Anastasia & Duck! I remember they first appeared on the high street, it was actually quite a few seasons ago on necklaces at Forever 21, Topshop and the like. It seemed like a short and sweet microtrend but a quick glance down the high street and you’ll see an abundance of owl print on clothing as well as the owl jewels which we’ve seen everywhere. It seems like owls are the new swallow/bird/butterfly/insert animal trend here but there’s more to the owl trend than a random surge in popularity of a particular animal. Marc Jacobs used an owl motif in his AW09 collection and owls were also a huge trend in the Seventies, which is one of the stand out trends of this season. Cute and quirky, there are so many different incantations of owls whether it's a realistic owl print or an adorable cartoon version. If you’re a fan of adorable owls, here are my top picks on the high street:
