Today’s Outfit: Mixing Textures

17 Nov

A good outfit has balance. Balance in colors, balance in proportions and balance of textures.  As I put my ensemble together today, I decided I wanted to play with texture.  Today, I’m mixing silk with a chunky knit ,and added in a leather clog.  Try it in your next outfit – experiment with frilly ruffles and a fitted leather jacket or tweed blazer.  Do an oversized chunky cardigan with slim, sleek trousers.  You’ll get bolder in the combinations the more you practice, and you’ll start to see just how creative you can get with your clothes.
