Apart from creative prints and bright colors, adding some texture to your looks makes your outfit more fashionable and creative. The mind behind the Simple et Chic blog, Valerie Husemann is a German style blogger known for her casual, feminine, and chic looks featuring interesting outfits with contrasting textures and design. If you’re wondering how to make your fashion style more stylish and fashionable, keep on reading to learn some tricks from Valerie.
Incorporating some texture to your outfits can be easier through accessories like bags, blanket scarves, and boots that are more noticeable than simple pumps and hats. Like Valerie, you may look for envelope clutches or sling bags made from fur, leather, suede, denim, and velvet that give more touch-enticing appeal. Fringes, cut-outs, embellishments, embroidery, and even tassels on your accessories can add more definition to your outfit without wearing loud prints and vivid colors.
Denim is known to be the casual fabric that can easily be incorporated on your style through overalls, rompers, shirts, skirts, jeans, and shirtdress making them look more laidback and cool. However, if you’re aiming for a textured look, stick to lighter or darker shades of blue and skip those black and white shades as they offset the denim texture making them look less visible. Though distressed and acid-washed are more statement-making. Valerie sticks to the chic version of denim with moderate rips and light washed styles you may also opt for.
Suede fabric screams the hippie, bohemian, and a 70s vibe, but if you’re not a fan of it, just wear the suede ensembles like vest, jacket, skirt, and crop tops with modern pieces to revamp them. You may choose classic pumps over ankle boots, chic button down shirts over peasant blouses, and plain blouses over retro print tops to avoid looking coming from the seventies. Suede in earth tones with fringe details can look fashionable and modern when grounded with classic shades, so avoid wearing head-to-toe earth tones to avoid looking overdone.
Wearing plain sweaters with casual denim jeans can contribute to the textured look style you’re aiming for. Just opt for chunky knits with touch-enticing feel over lightweight sweaters. If you feel wearing knits in classic shades is dull and boring, you may go for metallic or silk sweaters that look chic especially when worn with dress pants and leather trousers. You may go monochrome with a burgundy colored sweater, burgundy leather pants, and burgundy colored clutch bag. The key is to keep the contrasting fabric together creating an interesting outfit without exerting too much effort.
If it still feels challenging to mix and match your outfit to bring out the best texture and combination, just go for a touch enticing coat, blazer, and jacket to top your outfit like Valerie did. Wool coats, leather jackets, fur coats, tweed blazers, cashmere cardigans, and even denim vests can make your outfit look more appealing and stylish. Indeed, adding some texture to your looks is one of the creative and stylish ways to look more fashionable on your street style.
