Layering textures and mixing patterns/colors (ft. Box Clothing)

Hello everybody. Today I have a fashion post for everybody about mixing textures and  patterns/colors. All the items are from a site, Box-Clothing. I quite pleased with this website and their prices. They have some very simple pieces that could be used for a casual look, but you can add/ take-away pieces for a work look. I have included some fun pieces and a video at the end to explain better and to give you more visuals.

Mixing textures #1

This look is a little edgy, good for a day out. When I layer textures I like to stay within the same color combination. I not to big on direct opposite colors, but something similar. You can never go wrong with black and nude (hint of pink). I could of gone with a jean pant, but this leather will do.  To start I added a Forever Unique Blouse  , this was my base shirt. This shirt has all the only two colors I will be incorporating (black and pink-ish nude). Then on top of that goes the Almost Famous Vest,  which is one of the two main textures I will be using. Then the long sleeve leather jacket from Muubaa . Basically the  furry vest is suppose to peak out of the outfit. Then matching nude/black Chinese Laundry Heels and Ted Baker cross body (super cute).

Patterns and textures can easily be layered by sticking to the same color combination. When you have funky textures, like fur/wool, layering them in-between the casual pieces will sure work well.

mustard textures

This outfit was a complete love for me! The combination of mustard and hot pink is great for the summer. I have a pair of polka-dotted pants from Dr. Denim. Then for the shirt I did a sleeve-less, hi-low shirt from Vila. Then on top I did this honey, mustard loose shirt from Forever Unique. If you can pair correctly, it can very versatile. Then I went for a pair of velvet inverted heel shoes from, again, Chinese Laundry. Then I added a leather Guess bag ( crossbody) and a hot pink bracelet from Bibi Bijoux.

I hope that the video below will help you with layering textures and patterns more:) I would also like to thank Box-Clothing for sponsoring this post for me. I don't really do fashion posts often, but this was a nice change.
