Today I am sharing a couple tips on incorporating texture into your look. If you stick to picking colors in the same family you should have no problem applying these tips.
First you need to choose your color palette. I went with pretty pastels and light blue hues.
Since the weather has been on the cooler side lately, I added a striped blouse. Choosing a printed blouse instead of a solid added a subtle contrast to the lace front sweater. The blue pant ties this look together.
To incorporate texture try these:
- Choose your textured item (dress, skirt, sweater)
- Add a second layer in a print or solid
- Bonus tip – when wearing a skirt or dress, add a textured tight
You can also add texture with a handbag, a belt, shoes, or a scarf. Since this outfit is super girly, I chose a light brown bootie with floral cutouts. I added a pale pink bag with a snakeskin print. The final touch was a pearl bobby pin and statement necklace.
