It’s All About That Texture

48d55e0c8ef7e20c606313efd299d4d4Hello my beautiful readers,

For today’s post I wanted to share with you my favorite way of sprucing up a plain outfit. Can you guess what method I’m thinking of? {Hint: It’s in the title!} You got it, it’s by adding pieces of clothing, shoes, bags, or accessories that have a great texture to them. I found this will give your outfit a more three dimensional look to it which looks amazing both in real life and in pictures as well.

I’ve looked through a bunch of images and have found these few textures that I think will be very easy to incorporate into your day to day life. Some you may even have in your wardrobe right now.

                                                         Faux Leather

New York Fashionweek 2012

Faux leather is one of the most simplest ways to add a bit of texture to your wardrobe. It’s a great versatile piece to own, whether that be in the form of a skirt, jacket or pants. You can style it an endless amount of ways so it’s perfect for both day and night occasions.


Feather-Reflections-3-433x650I know what your thinking feathers really!? But hear me out not every piece of clothing made of feathers will be tacky and ugly. Just look at the photo above now doesn’t that look like a really cute, fun skirt to wear. The key when buying pieces of clothes with feathers on them is to make sure the feathers look very polished and put together.


Jacket-Chanel-style-18Tweed is such a beautiful material that looks very preppy, classic and sophisticated. I know when I think of tweed I usually associate it with those stunning Vintage Chanel suits. Ahh a girl can dream! Don’t worry us girls on a tight budget don’t have to miss out since I have seen thousands of beautiful tweed jackets, skirts and dresses all available online at very reasonable prices.

Getting back on topic! Tweed is another very easy material to style since it pretty much goes with everything. You can wear a tweed jacket mixed with a blouse, band t-shirt, a little sundress, a little black dress, the options are endless.

You have such a huge diversity in colors, thickness and styles. I especially love when they do intricate designs on jumpers and skirts, just that little touch of detail I think really gives the piece more character to it.

Faux Fur

They look amazing on just about everyone. Also when your buying a faux fur piece make sure to check that the fur is in good quality. You don’t want to spend a lot of money on a bad quality faux fur jacket for example then have to replace it a few months later.

Now unfortunately you do have to do some digging to find really good sequined clothes but when you do it is well worth the extra effort.

Those are all the ones I have for you. Let me know in the comments below what your favorite one is and how you would style it! Thank you for stopping by and reading my post I really appreciate it!
