The sun is now setting earlier and we are officially into pumpkin spice season. For some, this might mean heavy jackets, fleeces and woolly socks and with that, having to buy warmer clothes.
But instead of buying new clothes, as we transition to winter, why not be creative and mix textures? This will enable you to keep fuzzy and warm while using the clothes that are already in your wardrobe. For those who don’t know exactly what goes with what, here are the different ways you can mix the textures in your wardrobe.
- Velvet and Silk
A great hack to feel both warm and classy? The velvet and silk combo. Take your silk blouses, skirts or dresses out of your closet and pair them with a velvet blazer or jacket. To be even more fashion-forward, don’t hesitate to choose a bold colour combo. Pink and red? Brown and Black? Count us in!

- Denim and Sequins
Just because it’s colder doesn’t mean we will stop going out on the town. For this one, you need a versatile look, both fancy enough to go to dinner, but light enough in the case that you go dancing afterwards. Nothing easier than sequins and denim! Use your sequined new year’s eve top for some easy glam. Otherwise, go for low key glam with a bold sequin jacket.

- Knitwear and Leather
Finally, let’s look at a ‘comfy but still cool’ look that you can wear anywhere. Grandma an avid knitter? This is the perfect occasion to make her happy to see her creation on you and still look edgy. Pair your grandmother’s wool cardigan with a leather skirt for this look. Neutral tones will work the best for this outfit.
