Mixing Visual Textures

October 8th, 2015

I love fall looks built around textures. Like I said about suede, there’s no better way to add visual interest, depth and warmth to a look. Here are a few ways I’m working texture into my style this fall/winter.

Maybe it’s because my mother is an accomplished quilter, but I am a big fan of quilting, especially on jackets. A quilted jacket has a bit of rugged elegance and is versatile enough to be dressed up for work during the week or dressed down with denim for a casual weekend.

The zipped panel on the inside of the jacket was a trend I spotted in a lot of boutiques in Milan last fall. It’s great for adding a little extra warmth when you need it and also adds more depth via the illusion of an extra layer.

You know I love a good turtleneck and subtlety. It’s hard to spot in these photos, but the turtleneck I’m wearing – like most turtlenecks – has a subtle ribbing around the neck.

Fall is all about the weekend getaway. A small leather duffle fits everything I need (check out that embossing!). And don’t forget that the weather can be very unpredictable. I always bring a sturdy umbrella along just in case.

Now that it’s finally fall, it’s time to seriously think about stocking your closet with some fall classics. Our friends at Ted Baker are having their fall customer event during which you can save 25% off the entire site.
