FASHION FROM ABROAD: All About Texture

Who says you can’t feel jolly any time of the year and that reds and greens only belong on a Christmas tree? Not this Fashionista. She is practically taking the holiday for herself with this iconic look. From the bright red overcoat to the olive green leather skirt down to the red tassels on the edges of the clutch, this is one look that I’ll be setting aside for more than just the holiday season.

This Fashionista’s look is all about textures. One of my favorite style tools is pairing different textures together to add detail to any outfit. It can really take your outfit to another level. This Fashionista played with the textures in almost every piece of her outfit. I loved the solid color-blocking in this too, pairing such rich colors together to make one chic look is always a fashion “do.”

So how can you recreate this fierce look? Again play with textures. Start with a leather skirt with cutouts as your base and work outwards, like this Fashionista did. Pair with a white chiffon shirt and cropped red jacket draped over the shoulders. Finish off the look with some strappy black sandals, a true summer staple. Now, for the fun part. This Fashionista’s clutch is truly unique. If you’re into summer DIY projects, you can make your own pompom-trim clutch with just a few items. All you need is a straw clutch and some pompom trim and a glue gun and you’re in business! This is a great summer handbag that can really add some fun to any outfit. Because this look is so fab on its own, you can keep the accessories simple and throw your hair into a cute topknot bun to keep everyone focused on the fit.
