 It should come of no surprise that  I'm all about the texture this fall. After an out-pouring of love from this & this outfit post via my Instagram, I wanted to share my guideline on how you too can incorporate layers of texture in your fall wardrobe with only a few key staple pieces. And more than 80% of the goodies above are under $100 so {obviously}, feel free to shop these looks! 

TEXTURE 101: 
1. Don't be afraid to go monochrome! I love the idea of one color in two or three different shades {no more than that though}. As long as colors compliment each other, GO BOLD!

2. Fall ensembles are all about layers of texture! Allow elements like wool sneakers, cable knit sweaters, pebbled accessories, and patent leather loafers to speak for themselves. This requires you to do little-to-no styling yet look amazingly chic & put together.

3. Slip on & go! There's nothing more that I love right now than pairing an unexpected pair of sneakers, whether they be lace-up or slip-on, with something a little more feminine and dainty. Something I like to call the perfect juxtaposition.

4. Go bright or go home. Just because the months are cold {and even a bit dreary} doesn't mean you have to look that way too! Top off those grays, blacks, and blues with a fun pop of color for an unexpected twist and even side-eye or two.

5. Besides a POC { a pop of color for all you non-acroynum users} metallic is without a doubt my go-to accent when I can't figure out what to complete my outfit with. Whether it be these sneakers or this bag, -currently on my Christmas wishlist-, metallic is no-doubt my go-to topper for any outfit any day of the week. I highly recommend you give this blinding element a try!
