Fashionista NOW: It’s All About Textures In Fashion

While patterns, prints and colors in fashion grab our immediate attention, texture catches our sight in a very subtle manner by creating a mood about an outfit.

Textures also affect how colors, lines, and silhouettes appear to the naked eye.

Texture in fashion carries endless characteristics; from rough to smooth, coarse to fine, crisp to clingy, sheer to opaque, dull to shiny and many more. These seemingly little aspects of texture have a way of affecting the shape of your size and figure.

How to choose appropriate textures?

Coarse/rough fabrics are perfect for slim to slender figures as they add volume. Petite to large figures should avoid them as they can overpower and add unnecessary volume to these figures respectively.

Shiny fabrics will enhance irregularities in your figure and make you appear larger. Leave shiny clothing to those with figures that have regular proportions.

For this piece, we will be focusing on lace, crochet, knitted and netted details that will be great for most figures as long as you choose the correct size for your body!

If you’re running out of ideas or just looking for a simple way to update your wardrobe without having to sport yet another loud colored number or go through another selection of print-crazy pieces again, you’ll be delighted to note that texturizing your wardrobe is the way to go.

How to texturize an outfit?

There are a number of ways to do this. Wear a crochet dress if you aim for a full-on texturized look.

If you only desire a little texture here and there, incorporate a knitted scarf or a lace tank top or a fringe-y ankle boots into your outfit.

You don’t need to go all out when you can just don a touch of texture in your getup.
