Texturally Appealing

Words by Matt Huxley

There’s many things that you have to take into consideration when compiling an outfit. Colour, length, cut, fit and occasion. But one item that has escaped the majority of us is texture. Certainly it may not be the most important item to consider, but including a textural element in your look definitely helps to take your outfit out of the basic category.

When adding a texture to your outfit, think of something that’s going to complement the look and not detract from it. A chunky knit, suede, velvet, neoprene or faux fur can all add that special something to your style. Here I’ve layered a knit cardigan over a faux suede shirt and ripped denim, building up those texturally appealing layers. Textures can go out of style pretty rapidly however, so make sure that you know something’s going to work before trying it – the fate of corduroy for example…
