Playing With Textures

Being in New York for Fall is one of my absolute favorites. I love the changing leaves and the deep hues associated with this season. I’m finally breaking away from my white monochromatic looks and trying something new! The perfect summer-to-fall transition outfit is playing with textures and pairing a suede skirt with a trench coat! This khaki trench is a great transition piece and its neutral color can work with any outfit. I paired it with this suede skirt with scalloped detail. Suede is the perfect texture for fall, and the scalloped detail is a nod to feminine while still remaining on trend. I shot this while I was in LA, so the lightweight fabric of the trench coat was perfect for facing the tail end of the LA summer heat. But you can bet that I also packed this trench coat for NY! There’s nothing more chic than walking down 5th avenue with a flowing trench coat and (chunky) heels!

For Fall, I really want to encourage you guys to play with textures! My outfit is simple, but it’s really the details that pull everything together. I love pairing this simple linen top with this suede scallop skirt. When wearing neutrals, adding different textures breaks up the outfit and can add interest.

It might be Friday, but Fashion Week doesn’t take a break! I’m still out running around with my team to shows and events. Catch us on snapchat (@chrisellelim) to see our adventures!
