Mixing Textures for the Holidays

1. Start with a Statement Piece:

When it comes to mixing textures, it’s often best to begin with a statement piece. Whether it’s a sequined blouse, a plush velvet blazer, or a faux fur coat, let this item be the focal point of your outfit. By choosing a standout texture, you set the stage for a visually captivating ensemble that exudes holiday cheer.

2. Play with Contrasting Textures:

To create an eye-catching outfit, mix textures that are different yet complementary. For example, pair a sequined top with a sleek satin skirt or trousers. The contrast between the sparkly sequins and the smooth satin will create an intriguing balance. Likewise, a chunky knit sweater paired with a satin or silk skirt will offer a delightful juxtaposition of cozy and elegant textures. Another option is to pair a soft, fuzzy sweater with the rough texture of denim jeans.

3. Layering for Dimension:

Layering is a fabulous way to incorporate multiple textures into your holiday outfits. Start with a lightweight silk or chiffon blouse and add a chunky cardigan or a velvet blazer on top. The combination of delicate and plush textures creates depth and visual interest. Don’t be afraid to experiment with different lengths and proportions to achieve a well-balanced layered look.
