playing with texture

I love playing with texture! It gives an outfit some added dimension. I especially love the look of cashmere and silk together. They really are the perfect combination! Both fabrics are breathable, durable and luxurious to wear. If you have never worn cashmere and silk, you are missing out on something truly special!







Cashmere and silk have been used together for years to make the most fabulous garments, such as the essential pashmina, knitwear and coats. Both materials are of the highest quality and blend so well together. The feel of cashmere and silk is amazing!



This skirt is made of shantung silk, which consists of raw silk fibers, weaved in a way that gives a certain roughness to the material, but without it being rough to the touch. Sections of the silk fabric are raised, which are not imperfections, but are instead qualities that make this give this fibre its unique visual appeal.


A cashmere sweater in a classic cable knit design, offers a different type of playful texture. The softness of cashmere compliments the smooth sheen of the silk.



Do you like playing with texture? What are your favourites? I'd love to hear about them! 

Yours in style,

  1. I love the pink on pink and the different textures you've got going on here, especially liking how the black leather boots ground the whole look!

  2. Thanks for your comments Alexandra! The colour combination of the sweater and skirt is coral and pink. The lining of the silk skirt is actually the exact same colour of the sweater! I chose to wear these buckled boots to give this soft, feminine look some edge.
