How to Build Your Outfit with Textures



O U T F I T  D E E T S :  URBAN PLANET JACKET (SIMILAR)  |  TANK  |  LEGGINGS  |  PEEP-TOE BOOTIES - ON SALE!  |  BAG  |  SUNNIES

I love putting outfits together, but on days where I'm really pressed for time or unsure of what I want to wear, I go back to the basics.  Starting with an all black base is grounds for a great outfit.  The key is to pair different textures to keep it interesting.  

The faux leather leggings and the cotton top--which is chiffon in the back--adds a little something extra.  A large, black knit scarf would be a great complimentary piece to add, or a sweater if it's cooler.  From there, you can add in more black or a few colour pieces like I did with the jacket and suede booties.  

If you're unsure about mixing colours and textures, start with one colour and mix up the textures.  It's totally fine to wear black head to toe and play around with various fabrics.  Leather, suede, knit, cotton, chiffon, crochet & lace are all textures that pair well together and add interest to your look.

Love it! What color do you have on your nails? It looks a bit lighter than Lincoln Park After Dark.

@Katherine: what a sweet comment, thank you so much! I love that <3

@Dawn: Thank you! The nail polish is Essie's Bahama Mama and it's a burgundy colour (definitely lighter than LPAD, which I'm a big fan of as well -- who isn't, I suppose? ;)
