Texture is a powerful ingredient that adds sensuality and visual touch to an outfit. As Sonia Rykiel demonstrated in her Fall 2010 collection, accessorizing with texture can immediately take any outfit from drab to touchably fun.
While Sonia showed how texture through accessorizing creates a fun and 3-dimensional look, added elements of texture to any piece of clothing can result in the same affect.
As summer if coming to an end, and the stores are filled with cozy sweaters and layered looks, a bit of texture come this fall season is just what a girl needs be on-trend.
From boots to tops, scarves, dresses, tunics and more, including texture in varying amounts is an easy twist on fall’s classics.
