Fall Fashion Trend Report - Texture

So far this week we’ve discussed fall color trends and patterns, and today we’ll be looking at some luxurious textures perfect for the upcoming season.

When it starts to get cold outside, Fur is often a go-to fabric to add warmth and glamour to any outfit. Fur accents and accessories as pictured below add a feeling of luxury to any plain old outfit. If you want to achieve this glam look, we would suggest going with faux fur since its animal friendly and a hell of a lot cheaper.

Want to put a little edge into your look? Leather skirts are a hot pick for fall. The strong material is a nice contrast to the more feminine piece of clothing. Let the skirt make a statement by pairing it with a simple, casual top.

Velvet also provides a luxe look for fall. Who says red velvet can only look great as the drapes at the theatre. The soft material with a hint of sheen can be super glamorous like the red Ralph Lauren dress pictured. Another fun way to wear velvet is with a structured blazer, this combo is reminiscent of the 70s, another trend trailing in from summer that still going on strong for fall.

Lace is another great look for this season. It’s classic and feminine, but surely made a powerful punch on the runways for fall. The delicate fabric can be worn layered over other dressier fabrics for a classier more conservative look like the DKNY peter-pan collared dress, or play off the sheer/transparency trend with a sexier vibe like the Dolce & Gabbana.  Other fun ways to wear this look are with a pair of lace leggings, a lace covered clutch, or cropped lace gloves.
