texture talk

Libby

Truth be told, I’m a sucker for textures. I love dark colors that proudly declare their own sense of flair while simultaneously flirting with the idea of standing out against the crowd.

I recently purchased this maroon, faux fur blazer from Anthropolgie and I’m obsessed! It’s perfect for an afternoon downtown (as pictured), date night + even for interviews when paired with the right pieces.

Today it’s chilly and slightly overcast, so I paired this have-to-have blazer with a cozy, comfy pair of black leggings, a high-low style white tank, my favorite leather Zara boots and a few loose, low-maintenance curls.

What I love about this look is that it accomplishes a blend between classy and trendy while maintaining a high level of comfort. Another perk to this blazer is that it doesn’t have a need for accessories. The texture of the fur is independent in that it’s visually appealing and speaks for itself. It also works well with other textures. For instance, it complements my leather boots in a seemingly chic way.

The second justification for this purchase is the many possibilities in which it may be tailored to any occasion. It can be effortlessly paired with a neutral-colored dress, a quaint necklace and a pair of feminine heels or styled with a pair of ripped skinny jeans, a half-tucked t-shirt a pair of everyday shoes.

For a memorable finishing touch, I love my collection of Mac lipsticks. Their line of matte lipsticks are my go-to, and “Instigator” is one of my all-time favorites when I’m going for a bold and daring look.
