Men's Key Textures A/W 2012

whilst I was trying to gather traffic to my Facebook page, a certain someone complained that there was a lack of "men's fashion". so I did a bit of research into what is key for South Africa's Autumn/Winter 2012.
I came across the site : FASHIONBEANS, what a lovely website. I do agree that some of the garments and looks are a bit too OTT for the average South African man. however, what is nice to do, is to see the image as a complete LOOK and then take certain aspects of what you like, and then make your own look.

key textures/looks:
  • Chunky knit jumper
  • Pattern – Fair Isle
  • Mini Pattern Trend – Flecked/Mottled Fabric
  • Corduroy : do not freak out, I thought Grandpa as well, but it is not like that, promise.
  • Quilting
textures are great to add to any look, as they apply an additional aspect and colour to the outfit as a whole.  a key way of creating an interesting textual effect is by layering different fabrics and textures: for example, a tweed blazer over a denim shirt and a wool mix tie. but, make of it as you wish. take a look and see what you like and how you can incorporate this sort of "textured" and layered look into your winter must haves. 

keep warm and visit Kelsey's Closet on Facebook for more great winter trends.
