ALL IN THE DETAILS: Lace, Meet Texture

Now that the days are either cold or colder, it’s imperative that the heavy layers we bear reflect our style. Sometimes it’s hard, especially because with layer upon layer, distinct characteristics of clothes get lost in the bundle of fabric wrapped around you. However, subtleties can make a true impact.

This Fashionista is rocking the fall to winter transition fashion in the greatest way. She maintains her casual, laid back look while keeping to the quirky and interesting look she identifies with. Her jumper is a perfect cold weather green, but what makes it so great is the texture it has. With ridges and small, ornate designs, the sweater has its own charm that goes perfectly with the girliness of her lace socks. Socks are a great way to make a statement because they’re small enough to go unnoticed, unless, of course, there’s a reason to look and in this case, there is. Having the lace frill is dainty, and match that with her more masculine boots and you’ve got a perfect juxtaposition that is eye-catching and enviable.

How To: It can be intimidating to try to put together an outfit that mixes textures, patterns and looks but it’s truly not all that hard. Start off with a base, such as a textured jumper like this Fashionista did. Then pair it with your favorite jeans, or even put on a skirt as your more feminine piece. Beanies are perfect for cold weather and for the odd bad hair day, so toss one on and now all you’ve got to decide on is the shoes. Boots are the go-to fall shoe and since they come in so many different styles and fashion senses, there’s a pair out there for everyone. As for the socks, try lace or prints or even text. Socks are the new fashion statement so those birthday gifts of socks don’t sound so bad now, right?
