To add texture to your outfit, find one key piece that is a more detailed material. Pieces with crochet, fringe, or lace do the trick! For a neutral base, try to use a piece like Dreamer Vest that is in the same color family, but adds a nice contrast. The necklace ties the colors together nicely and adds yet another dimension.

Bralettes are another super easy way to add texture because they go with everything!! By taking a richly colored bralette, you are able to really make the colors of your outfit really pop and seem a lot less simple.  Additionally, they are a super lightweight layer that you won’t even notice!
