It’s All About the Texture

Layering. Is there any fashion trend that is any more intimating. Louis Vuitton Creative Director, Nicolas Ghesquiere is the undisputed king of layers, piling ruffles on top of animal prints, on top of tweed, to pave the way for the layering trend that will define 2019 style.

According to Vogue, there is a science behind the eccentric layers that have dominated the runways and slowly trickling into our streetwear. For starters, impactful layering is all about the texture of the materials.

Stacking knits on top of knits was a huge trend on the runways. For an unexpected look, adding knit sweaters and cardigans on knit turtlenecks was a takeaway trend from Chloe’s latest fall RTW show.

This year’s layering also has a bit more of an experimental edge. To create the most eclectic use possible Vogue suggests layering summer pieces over classic fall staple.

The fashion authority even goes as far to endorse the love it or hate it look of wearing pants under dresses. To update this aughties signature, opt for tailored trousers instead for jeans.

For the fashion-savvy, the more layers the better the outfit. Vogue pulls a lot of trend inspiration from a look in the latest glammed up grunge Versace show that is a complete mix of textures, colors, and pieces. “Liu Wen’s look at Versace involved a turtleneck, an unbuttoned shirtdress, a slip skirt, and a camisole. Of course, that kind of piled-on clash is nothing new to fashion’s most experimental dressers.”
