Trend Report: Discovering Textures
This blog post is originally from Stella & Dot’s corporate Stylewatch blog, seen HERE.
Combining textures is all over the runway this season, and a hot topic for every editorial feature. And while textural blending is most commonly seen in apparel with combos like leather and lace or tweed and satin, we’re loving the idea of blending textures by way of accessory! Accessorizing with interesting textures, like a silky top paired with a texture-heavy statement piece, is a fun and easy way to embrace the trend, and we’re all about making trends accessible. See our favorite combinations and style tips!
Statement necklaces aren’t just for special occasions anymore, they are the perfect piece to easily dress up a casual outfit and bring in the “wow” factor. We love the feathering texture of the Pegasus Necklace; it is visually interesting, yet surprisingly easy to wear. Wear this over an open neckline (think silk or velvet for a festive feel), or over a pop of color (Did we mention that mixing bold colors with different textures is hot right now, too?). Finish the look simply with our Essential Ball Studs, and you will be turning heads.
We love the versatility of the Plume Brooch for the office. The duo toned feathers and sparkly stones, add a subtle touch of glamour that’s appropriate for day or night. Pin the brooch to accent a sweater or blazer, or for our favorite look, pin it onto our Astor Five Strand Necklace, and finish the look with Tudor Studs. The array of textures worn in jewels will make the rest of your outfit effortless. Just slip on a fitted dress and classic pumps to support the look!
Lace is by far one of the most popular textures of the season. Our Chantilly Lace Cuff and Chandelier Earrings have all the intricate details of lace, and give every outfit the ultimate touch of glamour. We love starting with an elegant LBD little black dress, adding in the chandelier statement earrings, then finishing with a soft, feminine updo, simple eyes, and a bold lip. Step up the look even more with the matching cuff, or even the Metallic La Coco Clutch for an unforgettable night out on the town.
Now that you have a few tips on how to bring in texture to your winter look, we challenge you to come up with some of your own head-turning ensembles, paying special attention to textural blending!
