Try adding some texture into your wardrobe this season. It is a great way to make your outfits looked more polished as well as being more appealing to the eye. Every major designer has added texture into their collections this season. It is the new alternative to embroidery and embellishment. You can add texture by layering, folding, wrinkling, wearing different types of fabrics, wearing old upholstery-like fabrics, and so on. Brooke Catherine has added this texture twist into her new Summer 2009 Collection. She has blended her girly and funky style with texture by using one of a kind fabric and by uniquely combining fabrics to make fashionable pieces. Pictured below is a dress that will soon be added to bcatthreads and is designed by Brooke Catherine herself. The dress is a classic example of texture as it is made of three very different types of fabric. The top is a shift satin which gives the dress a romantic sheen, the collar and waistband is a luxurious gold dupioni silk, and the skirt is an emerald green jacquard fabric which has an upholstery-like textural pattern on it. If you decide to try this trend out, don’t add too many accessories or it will take away from the texture and make your outfit look cluttered. Keep your hair, shoes, and accessories classic and minimal and you will end up looking in style and FABULOUS!!
