This fall is all about texture. From patent to leopard to faux furs and sequins, it’s all about mixing up textures to create a sophisticated look that can go anywhere. The great thing about pieces that are heavy in texture is they can be dressed up or down. Don’t be shy to wear sequins for day and nubby knits for night.
Faux fur is hot for fall. Throw on a statement coat and you’re good to go, even on lazy fashion days. This checked print faux fur coat will add serious impact to a tunic and leggings for a casual outfit, but can also top a cocktail dress, tights and heels when going to a snazzy event.
Go casual with this faux shearing lined jacket. Shearling was all over the runways for fall, but if the real deal isn’t in your price range, check out super soft faux versions that achieve the same look. While we’d never advocate denim-on-denim, this denim jacket works with cords and twill trousers.
A sequin accessory, like this sequin vest, is a great way to add flash to any look. This vest can peek out from beneath a long grandpa cardigan in the day and be worn over your favorite LBD in the evening. Sequin accessories are also an easy way to get in the trend without investing in a sequin blouse or pants, which are exclusively for those who love the limelight.
Incorporating items that have the look of texture is a great route to go for the office. Work a Mad Men-worthy suit with these fence print tights and classic pumps for a fashion-forward look that can go from 9-5.
These boots are for the bold. Goat hair hangs off the calf-length boots for an urban Yeti look. Wear them with all-black for day and a shot of sequins and major faux lashes when rocking them at night.
