As one of the elements of design, texture is an important aspect of a complete wardrobe. It makes an outfit more cohesive as well as giving it visual appeal. Add texture to your garments and you are adding a conductor to enhance form and emphasize an area. Texture can accentuate a small waist while also taking the attention away from problem areas women often worry about.
Lace and crotchet are both excellent examples of texture in clothing pieces. The Florence cold shoulder top has a high neckline with crotchet fringe that accentuates a slim neckline and shows just the right amount of skin without being revealing. The Betsy Floral Trim top utilizes lace to add a feminine appeal and minimize the size and width of shoulders. The Tali Crotchet Lace top uses a combination of both crotchet and lace to create a sheer puff sleeve blouse with 3-D detailing, guaranteed to catch anyone’s eye.
The Joni Sheer Leopard Mini Dress has textural ruching at the waist to bring in the sheer, billowy fabric and add emphasis to the smallest part of the waist. The A-line skirt of The Joni Dress has tiers of ruffles to increase the use of texture. This dress would be an ideal option for dinner plans, especially if you’re wanting to eat an extra serving of pasta without have to worry about fitting into a tight dress.
