Trending now - tactile textures

Feel the fabric

One of the top trends for autumn 2013 is luxurious textures.  From metallics to fur, touchable textiles were the focus point of every AW'13 collection. Take a fashion forward approach to this seasons key trend by stepping out in high-shine metallics and smooth leather or snuggle into fuzzy textures, like fur, cashmere, velvet, tweed and bouclé. 

For a look that oozes with style combine smooth and fuzzy textures together. Pair leather pants with a fluffy jumper and fur scarf, wear a bouclé jacket with an oversized jumper dress or a tweed skirt with a soft t-shirt. For a dressed up look a velvet dress can be paired with a sleek leather jacket. 

The great thing about this look is that it's really simple to do. Detailing is everything, finishing your look, wearing shiny metallic flats or throwing on a thick, textured coat are all easy ways to follow this trend whilst keeping warm during the autumn and winter months.
