There is nothing as aesthetically pleasing as pairing a textured piece with a patterned one in an ensemble. This combination is sure to excite your optical and tactile senses, creating the ultimate sensory experience. Recently coming home from a long quarter of studying at my college I was excited to put my juxtaposition knowledge to the test at Urban Outfitters. Never intending to buy anything I tried on a multitude of outfits: a distressed knitted oversized Cheap Monday sweater with cheetah-print hot pants, a crocheted orange tank top with a leather miniskirt, and my favorite a lightly distressed beige crop top with a striped skirt (both had zippers in the back). I was so in love with the 60s secretary (a la Down With Love)feel that this outfit gave me that I couldn't help but to bring those babies home. What makes these pieces even more loveable is that they can each hold their own in my closet ensuring a multitude of texturized outfits to come.
