Turning Heads Linkup-Faux Fur – Tweed and Dark Florals for Fall


Morning Friends,

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday. I had my mind set that we could get some of the Christmas decorations up, as my niece would be helping with the Christmas tree. I also bought lighted garland for the banister with cranberries intersperced throughout with a large Christmas bow finishing the look. Yesterday, I styled a look for an office party or get together for the Holidays. I will be sharing more Holiday looks throughout the season.

Today, I decided to share my love of texture and color with a look for Fall.

By now, you know I am a Fall girl. I love the weather and dressing for Fall is very enjoyable to me as I can layer, mix colors and add textures to a look. Its just so fun! I began in my closet wanting to wear some dark Fall florals. I bought this bodycon dress several years ago on ASOS as the plums, navy and purples color scheme really appealed to me. I thought I would work within the plum family with this look and grabbed one of my favorite tweed jackets with a faux fur burgundy stole collar to pair with it. I bought this jacket probably about 6 years ago from Kohls and its still a favorite. My black clutch adds additional texture along with fishnet stockings and my plum suede booties.

Try mixing various textures with your Fall looks:

  1. Pair leather and lace for an eye catching look. I do so HERE.
  2. Tweed with plaid. Wear a colorful tweed blazer with a pair of checked pants.
  3. Faux fur is trending. Try adding a faux fur coat to a suede skirt and cashmere sweater.

Do you love to mix textures in the Fall? Which textures are you more likely to wear?

Outfit details:

    I adore the mix of textures and fabrics you’ve put together here Jess, with the fur and fishnet being so unexpected and fun. I’m bring out a lot of fur this winter too as it just makes me feel so festive.

    Wishing you a lovely week ahead!

    Wonderful outfit with its beautiful mix of fabrics and autumn colors. Although I tend to wear bolder, silver jewelry, I must say you have an exquisite collection of antique jewelry that I absolutely love.

    Jess, Fall is my favorite clothing season too for all the same reasons. Wine is such a perfect color for this time of the year and I adore how you’ve pulled various shades and textures of it into your fabulous outfit. You look fantastic. Thank you for the inspirations and for the link up.
