I have a race of angel-like winged humanoids, hereafter referred to as Avians. They are essentially humans with hollow bones and a single pair of large, feathered wings attached near their shoulders. I haven't quite worked out the specifics of their anatomy but I will let you know as I figure it out.

I am not looking for how they put on their shirts. I have plenty of resources on that. Rather, I'm looking for clothing and accessories that focuses on the wings. Similar to how we have jewellery and shawls for our chests, necks, and arms.

    $\begingroup$ Can they fly, or the wings are not for flight? (I mean, like the ostriches: they have wings but they cannot fly). If the wings are used for real flight, that limits a lot the things you can put on them. $\endgroup$ – Carlos Zamora Oct 5 '18 at 16:25

    $\begingroup$ That being said, I don't see this as a worldbuilding task, rather as a consequence of a character's personal taste. Maybe one individual likes beads while another likes gemstones or special ink. $\endgroup$ – Frostfyre Oct 5 '18 at 17:13

Clothing Ideas:

  • You could have wing bags that hang at the bottom of the wings while not in flight to collect molting/loose feathers if there is a special significance to one's feathers or on cleanliness.

  • Depending on the durability of the wings, the weather of your world, or the value of feathers have a covering/cape to protect them. This could also be used to keep one's wings pristine to show off.

Jewelry

  • Similar to piercings have a ring that trophies/ornaments could hang off of (I was thinking feathers of friends/family/powerful avians/enemies beaten-because they'd be light enough to still fly). I don't know how realistic a ring piercing is on a wing so this could be something closer to a clip.

  • Any comparable jewelry...gold/silver clips/chains to show off wealth and strength because they have to be able to fly with it too.

I would suspect, being angels and all, that the problem would be taken care of by divine biology. Like peacocks, for instance. Natural plumage adornment and coloring. Or the Monarch Butterfly.

No human artificial accouterments could ever compare to mother nature.

Shirts that button down the sides.

Picture if you will a shirt sewn together only at the top. the front looks like a normal shirt, covering the whole chest, the back is shaped more like a formal vest, or even the back of a bathing suit - wide open at the shoulder blades.

The shirt is pulled over the head (perhaps the arms go into sleeves attached on the front. The back drapes over the wings, then it's attached together via buttons, snaps, ties, at each side.
