In our (probably passive-aggressive) attempt at world domination, the Portland bird phenomenon just became legitimized with designers like Marc Jacobs and Carolina Herrera embracing the notion. The aviary wonders pop up most often in lightweight blouses (preferably button-downs or tanks), and floaty dresses. If that feels like too much, work the magic in accessories like jewelry and scarves.

TV personality and style expert, Robert Verdi theorizes about the runway explosion, "Birds are a happy, free species…People are craving freedom, and flight, and change."

Yup, that sounds like us.
