Clothing textures have always been around but this season its taking over the fashion industry. Quite a few textures and fabrics are currently in the spotlight, and we approve of them all. We love playing with colour and texture and this season each type of fabrication is shown off in totally different ways. Take a look at the textures we think are heading the trends…
Shearling, teddy fur, sheepskin and Sherpa are a few types of faux fur available. These look great and feel even better! Because of the thickness of the fabric, faux fur is best worn during winter because of the thickness of the fabric.
Think vintage with a modern twist… We associate corduroy with an older trend that used to be popular back in the day but don’t be misled! Corduroy is back and bigger than ever. We love these looks…
Velvet or velour is a rich, luxe textured fabric. Yes, there are lots of classy pieces like the classic evening gown or the embellished shawl made from this fabric or texture but today we see this trend in almost everything!
Shine and sparkle? Yes! Go all out with a fully embellished piece or be subtle with a few sequins appliqués, either way you’ll be on trend.
