Fall's Hot Fashion: Texture

Aug 18, 2007
This fall, it's all about texture. Punchy plaid, herringbone and hounds tooth with textured tights are all the rage. The hot color is any shade of gray - pants, skirts, sweaters or jackets, gray is where it's at.

Try a textured cashmere blended sweater with an A-line mini, tights and simple heels for a look that will take you from an afternoon meeting to dinner out with the girls. Top it with a mid-length wool coat with a cinched waist for a perfectly prim and proper look. Having a low-key Saturday afternoon? Put together a textured charcoal gray sweater with a pair of denim jeans from Kippys or REOSTARR; complete the look with a cute pair of black ballet flats.

For the in between season, when it's not quite cool enough for a wool sweater, wear a lightweight sweater or cape from Adore; Streets Ahead makes some great long-sleeve, lightweight tops to pair either of these with.

Want something less basic? Pair a fitted cashmere turtleneck with a corset top from Malo and a skirted tweed coat. Mid-calf black boots with black tights keep your lines long and your silhouette slender. Go back to the days of boarding school and throw on some Mary Janes with a wool jumper and a white, French cuffed blouse. Keep your makeup smoky and sexy, yet subtle.

Blazers in tweeds are perfect for pants and skirts. When they're paired with leather, they take on an urban edge that only a true fashion conscious chica can carry. Try ankle boots from designers like Kenneth Cole to complete your look. If you like streamlined pieces, but are feeling a bit more bold, pair them with shiny stilettos or a tweed bomber. Don't get me wrong, streamlined is great on it's own, but when you add pieces to make the look pop, you're bound to carry yourself with more confidence because your look has more flair.

Don't forget your handbag when you're headed out the door. Fee'fe has come out with all sorts of large, leather handbags. In blacks and chocolates, the colors keep with the darker monotones of the fall; plus, black and chocolate browns are always good staples to have and offset the look of tweed and plaid. If you opt for that bold look with shiny stilettos, carry a red Jaguar Bowler bag from French and French; you'll have room for all you want to carry, plus everyone around you will know what great taste you have.

This fall, forget black and white and instead, think in shades of gray. Channel visions of the French countryside to inspire instant wardrobe updates that will keep you looking fresh and well-groomed, as though you've just left boarding school.
