Toy With Texture
These fierce styles and key accessories add edge to fall’s rich fabrics
You get a rich mix that’s both cozy and chic when you pair up differing fabrics. Done strategically, combos that would seem to clash—take wool and sequins, for example—complement each other for a look that’s friendly for work and fun for regular life. The rule here is: Bolder is better—and more boss.
1. Plaid + Herringbone
Contrasting patterns in the same hues make for a mix that ’s creative but in sync. A classic checked blazer looks especially sharp.
2 Shearling + Coated Denim
Play with opposites by pairing casual jeans with an extravagant shearling jacket. When the fabrics of both pieces share a glossy veneer, they make for an easygoing yet elevated look.
3 Knit + Sequin
Dare to do sequins with daytime wear. A hint of shimmer, in the form of a classic pencil skirt, gives your outfit a jolt and feels toned-down when topped with a mohair sweater and sleek sneaks.
