Runway Your Way: Luxurious Texture

by Alexa Carlson, Contributing Writer

Rachel Zoe Fall 2013Known for her distinct, glamorous 70’s style, Rachel Zoe explored a far more tailored look in her fall 2013 collection. Incorporating elements from both her strong personal style and inspiration from equestrian influences, pieces such as her gold sequined skirt, silky paisley print blouses, and faux fur separates helped her stand out amongst the jodhpurs and pea coats of the season.

Featured in the look below, the mix of cable knit and leather is extremely luxurious. Faux leather has been and continues to be a major trend this year and the chunky sweater in this ensemble will be sure to keep you cozy. Adding to the strength of this look, the caramel color of the trousers works perfectly with a traditional fall palette.

To get your own variation of this look, try donning these leather shorts from Piperlime for a more affordable and youthful take. To add extra warmth and another layer of texture consider adding a pair tights. Finally finish up the look with a berry lip, delicate gold jewelry and beige, suede booties for an ensemble that breathes sophistication in a manner that is both relaxed and effortless.
