trend spotlight: texture.

Playing with texture is a sure-fire way to look and feel fabulous this season. The runways exploded with colourful and exciting fabrics that you can effortlessly incorporate into your wardrobe. Slightly intimidated by the prospect of texture? Here’s our break down of the key fabrics and materials for fall and how to style them:


 This is a fantastic weighty texture to use, helping to create dramatic but rustic looks, as seen on the Burberry and Balmain runways. Suede is usually the preserve of bohemian and folk-trend looks, but it emerged this season as a rough and ready texture to add instant luxury and edge to your outfits and ensembles. Opt for suede fringing to enhance the heavy three dimensional effect of the material by investing in sleeveless jackets or gilets and pairing with chunky knit jumpers. We also suggest that you don’t limit yourself to clothing pieces; bags and belts are a great way of adding an element of roughness to even your most delicate outfits.


Lace is more often than not associated with spring and summer trends; however, this season, designers have brought it to the forefront of some of their fall collections. Lace in all of its variations, crochet, machine-worked and others, helps to create a luxury Victoriana style that appears severe but sensuous. Look to dresses designed by Ralph Lauren, Alexander McQueen and Simone Rocha for inspiration. Don’t be afraid of wearing long dramatic hemlines, the preferred proportion of the season; lace can be moody and atmospheric but the line will simultaneously elongate and flatter your figure. 
Faux Fur

This is an adventurous texture to adopt, especially with the popping colours that designers used to create their faux fur coats and accessories this season. The perfect texture to create volume and presence, make like Fendi and Emilio Pucci if you really want to push the boat out. The Italian design houses used the brightest statement colours that are sure to turn heads. Alternatively, you can emulate Celine for a more polished and discrete take on faux fur, using a fresh cream and white palette to complete the look. Phoebe Philo styled her Celine models with bright aqua eye shadow, proving that you can add a splash of drama and colour in other ways.


Traditional tweeds were updated this season thanks to striking shapes and modern colour palettes. Chanel and tweed are invariably intertwined, the texture being one of the design house’s biggest exports and showcased almost every fashion week, with this season proving no exception. Other designers also incorporated traditional tweed into their collections with delightful modern twists. Dior created fantastic separates with the texture, with Raf Simons’s slashed kilt a particular favourite for a dynamic yet still conservative look. Similarly, Oscar de la Renta injected splashes of purple into fabulously steamlined tweed coats, while Preen packed a punch with a red, black and white colour palette. You don’t have to invest in a full on suit to nod to the tweed trend. Separates like skirts and jackets are a great way of nodding to the trend while allowing the rest of your outfit freedom to pursue other looks.

perfect sunglasses.

When choosing sunglasses, you need to think about proportion and creating balance. And no matter what your face shape, make sure you protect your eyes! As a general rule, choose styles that are the opposite of your face shape. Most people fall into four different face shapes: square, round, heart, and oval. Here’s a quick guide to help you choose the perfect sunglasses for your face shape that will compliment your features most with some black sunglasses options that I grab from here:

Square. This shape has a strong jaw, wide forehead and wide cheek bones. Balance your sharp jaw line and square chin with oval or round frames. Choose sunglasses with soft lines or rimless edges to soften your angular profile. Avoid shapes with sharp geometric edges because they can strengthen your features.

Round. This face shape is widest across the cheek bones and narrows some at the forehead and jawline. Oversized, rectangular and angular frames will set off the roundness well and will make your face longer and thinner. Round frames will only make you look rounder. Acetate styles will also create a more defined silhouette.

Heart. Don't go for big frames because it will attract more attention to your forehead. Since the narrowest point of your face is your jawline, any frame that is wider on the top than it is on the bottom will work well. To accentuate the narrow downward part of your face, choose small frames like cat-eye, wayfarer and sporty frames. Round edges works perfectly well for a heart-shaped face.

Oval. You're lucky, because almost any style fits with this face shape. It's characterized by balanced proportions, a narrow forehead and jaw line, a chin that is slightly narrower than the forehead. You can experiment with different styles. Anything goes! Just remember that whatever you choose, they should be proportionate to your face. Avoid styles with arms that are too low, because they may elongate your face.

Shopping for the right sunglasses for you may be a difficult task specially when the style you want doesn't flatter you. It's important to know which frames are perfect for the shape of your face to define your personal style. Visit Zaful to shop the perfect black sunglasses now! xx
