Fall Trend :: Texture

Details discusses how to incorporate texture into your wardrobe this Fall.

Balance the uneven surface of a tweed jacket with the worn-in comfort of a chambray shirt and white jeans. A roped leather belt is both soft and polished—making it the perfect bridge between wool and cotton.

Nothing communicates rugged appeal quite like a coat lined in shearling. To keep from going full-fledged mountain man, avoid other bulky layers—and stick to a simple button-down and T-shirt.

To offset the rigid pattern of a herring-bone overcoat, combine it with inviting underpinnings like a rumpled silk scarf, fine-wale cords, and suede boots. The mix of materials is smart, not pretentious.

Double-dosing on denim is no longer taboo provided your jeans and jacket are dark-rinsed and a close—but not exact—color match. A buffalo-plaid vest acts as a striking counterpoint that punctuates the potentially one-dimensional appearance of the combination.

Washed Cotton
The low-maintenance fabric isn’t just for summer, especially when worn in the form of a rumpled anorak. The jacket livens up the sweater-jeans pairing and—on blustery days—picks up where a loose knit leaves off, keeping the chill at bay.

When you wear a nubby plaid tie, avoid competing fabrics and prints. A clean, military-inspired khaki shirt is a cool canvas for the prep-school standby.
