Mixing textures is a great way to add some interest to you outfit. This week’s Fashionista did just that! She paired a sheer and cotton cardigan over a simple tank top and leggings and added even more interest with a knit scarf and a metallic statement necklace. Adding all these different textures really added to the interest of the outfit and made her stand out from just a simple tank and leggings.

How To: Adding textures to an outfit can be extremely easy for any Fashionista/o. Starting with a basic outfit like this week’s Fashionista’s tank top and leggings and adding pieces on top is the easiest route. After creating a base outfit chose another texture, for example a sheerer material top. Adding a cardigan over that in a knit or cotton will add another layer of depth. Finishing the outfit off with a few accessories adds a few more layers as well. A statement necklace will draw the eye and a scarf is there to add a little warmth in the upcoming winter months. These easy steps can turn any casual outfit into an amazing one.
